  Letter to the Members

Dear Elder College Members,

Last Spring we had a full slate of courses available, and participation was great. For this Fall session you will note that the number of courses has decreased. This is a time of transition for Elder College and the decision was made to reduce the number of courses to allow for volunteers to effectively deliver them. The Curriculum Committee and Executive Board have worked hard to identify a selection of courses that will be delivered this fall.

Elder College requires volunteers for both the Executive Board and Curriculum Committee. We hope you will consider putting your name forth at our Annual General Meeting scheduled for November 15, 2023 at 1:00 pm. Location is the Seniors Activity Centre.

Volunteer positions: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership, Promotion/Communications, Social, Curriculum Chair and members, Equipment and seven Directors at Large.

The Registration Procedure in Spring of 2023 was successful and the same format will be utilized on September 20, 2023. Covid 19 is still present, and we will continue to be cautious and will follow the same process.

The Executive Board and the Curriculum Committee will continue to work to increase the number of courses offered for the Spring session. If you have a desire to become a course leader, we would love to hear from you!

Elder College would like to thank Anna Hughes for her tireless dedication to ensuring we have continued to deliver courses. We wish Anna all the best as she moves into the next chapter of her life.

Elder College relies on the volunteer course leaders and coordinators that provide our community with these courses delivering lifelong learning opportunities. We thank these volunteers for their ongoing support.

Acting President, Bev Atkins
