MONTHLY MESSAGE FROM our Executive Director.
Welcome back everyone. I trust you all had a wonderful summer.
September brings Bow Cliff back up to full operations and we are excited to introduce a full weekly schedule that includes over 20 programs and activities.
Thank you to all the Super Members from the other organizations that have joined us over the summer for many of our events. We have grown over the summer to 8 participating Activity Centre's, and we hope to announce another addition in a few weeks. We are getting great feedback that our members are enjoying their Super Membership and the new friendships they are building.
As part of our continuing collaborative efforts, 12 Bow Cliff members will be representing us on
September 15 at the 2nd Annual Golden Bowlers event. Knock them down!
We have two fundraising events coming up. The Hilda Townsend Memorial Bridge Tournament on Saturday, September 23rd and our first attempt at a major corporate fundraising event, the Poker Tournament on Friday, October 20th. Proceeds from the bridge tournament will go to support programming at Bow Cliff and the proceeds from the poker tournament will go to the Alzheimer’s Society of Calgary, Confederation Park 55+ and Bow Cliff. Please contact the office for more details.
Thank you to our incredible volunteers who helped us serve 97 members at our Greek Member’s social in July, the 60+ at our August Pool Party and our weekly lunches. We couldn’t have done it without you! September’s member social will be an Oktoberfest special with live entertainment.
Thank you to our donors, funders and sponsors who support us throughout the year and who have helped us navigate all the unexpected and unbudgeted building maintenance surprises. We are not sure what the outcome will be with the requirement to install a grease trap or a fats, oil and grease (FOG) interceptor. Hopefully we will not have to dig up our kitchen, but we will see…….
Look forward to seeing everyone back at Bow Cliff in September.
