Registration for winter semester held January 9th, 2019

Registration for the winter semester, running January to the end of May, took place at the Memorial Centre on January 9th.

The Board of Directors and amazing Volunteers made the process a success!

Registrants lined up early and at the end of the 2 hours, 377 people had signed up for classes.  58 of those are new registrants to the Activity Centre.  And we continue to grow as this first week of classes brought even more people to the office to sign up.

We welcome all of you and hope you enjoy your classes.

PS.  We are always looking for volunteers, and if you should have a skill you would like to share as a leader please come talk to us!  We are always working to improve and expand our activities.  Have fun …..

Christmas Luncheon, December 7th


The Holiday Season began at the Brockville Legion on Friday, December 7th with our annual Christmas Luncheon.

Once again the scrumptious meal was provided by Cindy Croteau.    A traditional turkey dinner topped off with a delicious Sticky Toffee Pudding cake!  Ninety four participants and guests attended.

Our participants from the Maximal Bell Ringing Class amazed us with their talents by playing a few songs.

A presentation was made to the outgoing directors of the Board;  Cheryl Nix, Ralph Greenhalgh & Tony Dunbar, thanking them for their outstanding dedication and support of the activity centre and it’s board.

Thank you to Debby Greffe & Marian Rafferty and the office staff for all the work put in to making this event a success!

On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, we wish you all a magical holiday season. We look forward to 2019.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a very Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year. Enjoy !
