A message from Gord Kruger, Evergreen Club president
Hello Everyone!!!….Don’t look now but Summer is starting to show in the rear view mirror…….autumn is making a presence in the windshield……and we are looking forward to another busy “Evergreen Season”. Now that your kids have gathered up their own kids and headed back to wherever it is they came from, Grandma and Grandpa can reengage with their activities at the Evergreen. Hopefully you had a wonderful summer and had opportunity to get together with your family and friends. It turned out to be quite a hot and dry summer season…..and as it turns out we are still having to deal with the results of that weather pattern that seemed to hang out most of the summer. Maybe, just maybe, there is something to this “climate change thing” after all.
Many wonderful things are planned for our upcoming Evergreen Season. Club reps are already planning for the busy season ahead and our coordinator Janet and her assistant Cathy are busy laying the groundwork for all these happenings . Helen’s Special Events team will be hard at work this fall and will bring you some more great entertainment and activity events. Things get rolling in September with our annual Garage Sale….and then October brings our “Open House”, Trash and Treasures and our first of the year Drama event…….stay tuned for event information.
The Evergreen Club is dedicated to making your life fun, with purpose and friendship. We have an absolutely wonderful facility here at the Filberg and your executive is presently negotiating an updated Service Provider Agreement with the City Of Courtenay. I will update you in future newsletters as we progress with this process. I can assure you that the way things happen here at the club will remain pretty much the same and you will be able to continue to utilize the resources of the Florence Filberg Centre…….it’s yours to use and enjoy…..and hats off to our many volunteers….they steer the ship and provide the energy to make it all happen.
And here’s something to keep in mind as we move toward a new season…..”One person with CONVICTION will overwhelm a hundred who have only opinions”…… Adios for now!!….gk
