It is now past due to renew your annual membership. You must renew your 2017 membership now in order to take any of our courses, join any of our many groups or vote at our AGM. The membership fee is now only $20 until the end of December.
The bylaws of the Cordova Bay 55+ Association state in paragraph 4.7 that:
“Members who have reached the age of 90 will not be required to pay the membership fee for the years following their 90th birthday, but will have all the rights and obligations of membership”.
Therefore, Members who celebrate their 90th birthday, and advise the office of this achievement, will become “GOLDEN MEMBERS” and future annual dues will be waived.
This privilege is not mandatory. A member may choose to continue to pay the annual fee if that is preferable.

Thursday, October 26th — Heritage Acres (10:30 am. )
$10 per person for the tour, coffee, and muffin. Maximum of 35 people. Deadline for registration is Tuesday, October 17th.
Take a step back into the peninsula’s farming history as you tour the pioneer church and log cabin and sit in the desks in the old schoolhouse. Farm tractors, steam engines, old cars, buggies, wagons and a blacksmith shop, all artfully displayed, prompt visions of the past. What you see from the Pat Bay Highway is only a very small part of the exhibit.
We will meet in the Heritage School House (big yellow building) to have an overview of the history of the facility before splitting into smaller groups to visit the Log Cabin, the Chapel, the Moody Gosset/Newman/and Tillicum Buildings, the Hatch Car Shed, the General Store, the Gardners’ Garage and the Carpentry Shop. We’ll be ready to enjoy a cup of tea/coffee and a muffin after these visits.
At the conclusion, some members may wish to return to our CB55+ Centre and others may wish to go into the Heritage Museum as it is also a very interesting building. We’ll offer both options so that the needs of everyone are met.
There will be a blood pressure clinic held on Tuesday, November 14th at the CB55+ Centre from 9:00 am. – 10:00 am.
Tuesday, November 14th and 21st — Flu Shot Clinic
There will be 2 Flu Shot Clinics offered at CB55+ Association on November 14th and 21st from 9:00 – 10:00 am. For those members who have already signed up for the November 14th time slot, we are asking if some of you can switch to November 21st, as there are many more names on the November 14th list, and very few signed up for November 21st. If you can come on the 21st, please add your name to the list for this date.
Also, there are consent forms that must be completed before you get your flu shot, so if you can come in before your scheduled date, please take the time to fill in a consent form contained in the blue folder and hand it in to the Office. This will speed things up considerably.
Please bring your Care Card when you come. This is free to all seniors.
Wednesday, November 15th — Coast Collective Art Centre – 10:30 am. (Maximum 30) Please sign up at the office.
