CB55+ Activities at the Centre suspended until further notice
March 1, 2021
While the Centre remains closed at this time we are optimistic that the Province’s vaccination program will allow us to be back together in person again in the not-too-distant future. Until that day, some of our activities are continuing via Zoom and we are keeping in touch via email communication updates and this website. Please check out the Spring Edition of the Blue Heron News to update yourself on what’s new with CB55+ (click on the Blue Heron News tab at the top of this page).
The Board has met regularly to conduct the Association’s business and we are currently preparing for the Annual General Meeting scheduled for March 23, 2021 to be conducted via Zoom. The Notice of Meeting and the full package of AGM reports are now posted on the AGM Information tab at the top of this page. The AGM Notice and information package are being sent out on March 4th via email and regular mail to those without an email address on file.
Reminder: Membership renewal for 2021 is due by March 31st for $30 after which it will be at the regular rate of $40. Renew your membership on-line by clicking on the Renew Membership Online tab at the top of this page.

2020 was certainly a challenging year for us all. While our social connections are still extremely limited, there is an end in sight and we look forward to the day when we can spend time with you all again!
The extension of BC’s health orders until February 5th means that the Centre will remain closed for the time being. Special Interest Groups that are able to meet via Zoom continue during the closure, including men’s and women’s fitness classes. CB55+’s e-mail account is checked on a regular basis and incoming mail is processed while the office is closed. The Board continues to monitor the situation and conduct our monthly meetings via Zoom to take care of CB55’s ongoing business.

In view of the new COVID-19 health orders introduced yesterday, Nov. 19th, 2020, by Dr. Bonnie Henry and also our vulnerable population group, we have made the difficult decision to suspend all CB55+ activities that take place at the Centre while the orders are in force. Activities offered at the Centre by Saanich (line dancing and yoga) have been cancelled by Saanich.
Please ensure any CB55+ activities that take place outside the Centre (hiking, walking, pickleball, etc.) conform to current COVID-19 health orders. Note that social gatherings such as coffee breaks with CB55+ members outside your immediate bubble are restricted at this time.
Activities conducted via Zoom such as Men’s and Women’s Fitness and other individual Special Interest Groups will continue.
We hope that by December 7th BC cases will decline sufficiently to allow Dr. Henry to bring in more relaxed Covid health guidelines that will allow for the reopening of the Centre.
We sincerely thank you for your support during this difficult time! CB55+ Board Executive and CB55+ Reopening Committee
