There's something for everyone!
As per the announcements from the Alberta Government and AHS on Saturday, February 26th, Bow Cliff's Board of Directors have decided that we will be observing the following protocols:
We will continue with our enhanced sanitization protocol and strongly recommend that everyone continue to wear masks inside the facility. Staff will continue to wear masks for the time being, to make all participants and members feel comfortable at Bow Cliff. Although the mask mandates (both provincial and city-wide) have been repealed, we will respect each individual's decision to wear a mask or not inside the facility. We encourage everyone to choose for themselves what their comfort level is while attending activities, programs and events at Bow Cliff and we appreciate everyone's understanding, support, and respect for all other members.
Again, if you are feeling ill, please stay home.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact John Yannitsos: email@example.com.
You have probably noticed we have been working collaboratively with 8 other seniors activity centres to strengthen and broaden our programming and fundraising. Our first joint event is the online fundraising 50/50 raffle where the proceeds will be shared equally to support our programming. The pot is currently over $10,000 and still growing. We hope that by the time the draw is held on June 12th someone could win up to $10,000! Please consider supporting our raffle at https://www.rafflebox.ca/raffle/bowcliffseniors or contact the office for more information.
The other joint event is more of a fun event on June 12th at 1pm, where we will be hosting a fun lawn bowling tournament. We have a total of 24 teams representing the 9 centres and the winner of the tournament will have bragging rights for a year. Everyone is welcome and there will be food and beverages available. We are anticipating approximately 200 people so please come and enjoy an afternoon of fun and meet members from other organizations across the city!
Thank you to everyone who supported our Growing Smiles plants fundraiser. We hope you enjoy your beautiful plants!
We held our first free members travel social in May celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Our incredible young volunteer Kathryn held a cooking class making tortillas and then a magnificent chicken burrito for everyone to enjoy. June’s travel social will feature Asian cuisine classics with Gyoza dumplings and Ginger Beef. Please let the office know if you would like to participate in the cooking classes and the free social. Seating is limited so please book early.
Things seem to be improving but as always, we appreciate your patience, understanding, and continued support as we ramp up programming and events.
