Thank you for joining our chat!
I hope everyone is keeping healthy!
Well this took me some time to get to this point but here I am. I think this is a super idea and hope the members will take advantage of it. Knowing I can chat with some other members makes this miserable event less isolating. As a member for over 35 years I've made many friends and wish them well until we can have lunch together again.
Hi Everyone, hope you are all staying healthy!
Hello fellow members. I am amazed with this technology servicing everyone. I may be one of the youngest members but I am old school when it comes to most electronic technologies!!! I love you all dearly for how everyone cares for one another. This is week one only. What messages will come on line by week four or five or later!! Frustration, anger, grumbling, impatience, reality?!! If you want to read about my life story as a nurse I've been writing about since late January I would be happy to send it to you for something to read. I have about 9 files in total. It has been a process. Or I could just send you something in two files that I wrote in the past two days that is COVID related. You must send me your email address for me to fwd my stories to you. Send to.....email@example.com Stay healthy and mindful and spiritually peaceful!
The current situation surrounding the COVID-19 Pandemic has come to impact many people worldwide - we are all in this together. How fortunate we are to have each other to maintain contact through these trying times via this mode of communication to ensure people remain connected, informed, and supported during such an uncertain period of transition. Your continued support and care for each other will be most valuable and appreciated. Let's adhere to local and global health authority's recommendations for social distancing, but don't become isolated or alone. We live in a time when there are many ways to remain in contact. Our being there for each other will be most valuable and ensures people will remain feeling connected during uncertain closures of schools, daycares, community centres, recreation centres, entertainment facilities, places of worship, multiple businesses, etc.
Go for walks, listen to some music, call friends, help neighbours, and utilize our new "Stay Connected" page that links us all to multiple free activity sites and resources online. Bow Cliff Seniors commits itself to help people stay connected during this time of continual challenge.
I extend thanks to our Executive Director, staff, administration, volunteers and Board of Directors for all the extra help and support provided over the last couple of weeks. Bow Cliff has been able to shift from preparing us initially to increase the frequency of sanitization measures, to reorganize programs, to contact members, to cancel multiple events then to finally follow-through with a complete closure of the entire facility until further notice. The new online chatting space will provide a great location to hear from others and keep members connected ongoingly.
I wish all the best to you, your family and friends. Please stay healthy, mindful, positive, and safe. Nobody has to feel alone. I now pass the relay torch forward to encourage everyone to support each other.
I look forward to hearing from many members as more people become familiar and comfortable with this new additional medium of contact.

Hi everyone! Just a quick shout out to my paper tole classmates Erick, Pat, Flo, Joyce, Amanda and of course our instructor Jenn! Love you all!
This is a great way to keep in touch, I’ve talked to friends and will continue to do so, also welcome any phone calls and/or emails. I am keeping myself busy mostly with reading, also taking this opportunity to do some downsizing, one cupboard at a time, not as diligently as I read. My virtual library is quite extensive, I’m working through it and have read some very strange books, also some great ones. When/if I’m done my library I will use the public online library, though I’m sure it is being used by many. have my camera all charged ready for a few lovely days that I can drive out and see what fauna that will pose for me. Take care everyone, be healthy.
