Where has June and part of July gone already??  During June we had several lunches hosted by different groups.  The lunches were well attended, and enjoyed by all, as well as a great social time for everyone.  On our Tuesday Drop-In, June 23rd, we had an early Canada Day Celebration.  Thanks, to Dorothy, Gwen and Diane for all their hard work putting together this wonderful presentation.  Everyone enjoyed an “ice cream cake” with a strawberry maple leaf on top after the celebration.

Even though there is no scheduled Tuesday Drop-In, there are still a lot of groups happening in July and August.

Cordova Bay Elementary was one of this year’s recipients of the Golden Star Award.  This is an award sponsored by the B.C. Retired Teachers’ Association (BCRTA).  There will be a presentation and recognition of this award at a school assembly on June 1st.  Several of our members who have been very active with the Intergenerational programs will be invited to attend.

The BCRTA Golden Star Awards have been established to recognize and reward programs in the public education system of British Columbia that have as their salient feature the interaction of B.C. students with seniors.  Five awards are made each year and carry a $1,000 grant to the school.

This award is something worth recognizing and celebrating.  We should acknowledge all the members of CB55+, who over the years have worked with the many intergenerational programs and especially Val Murray and Diane Cowden for their leadership. 


The registration for May and June courses will take place from Thursday, April 16th onward.  Please note that the registering for Stretch and Strength has gone back to the original way of registering.  However, Punch Cards will be necessary for everyone from May onward in order to attend a class.

 For further formation on what courses are available, including dates, times and cost, look under the tab for Courses then choose CB55+ Courses.
