We are reopening!
June 8, 2021
We are pleased to be able to offer a phased-in return to activities at the CB55+ Centre.
BC’s Restart Plan announced on May 28th has allowed CB55+ to begin reopening the Centre for limited activities. We are working to expand permitted activities in a safe and gradual manner in accordance with the BC Restart Plan. We thank you for your patience as we work towards carefully opening up additional activities in a way that ensures the safety of our members. As more of our members receive their second vaccinations, we expect members will feel more comfortable getting back together and more groups will return to the Centre. The gradual resumption of activities is subject to change, as a result of any new Provincial Health Orders that may be issued.
The Office: The Office will resume regular hours in September. The office is now open Tuesday mornings only; however, phone messages and emails are monitored on a regular basis. New memberships, renewals and activities can be paid online (Pay for Activities Online tab above), by mail or on Tuesday mornings by appointment by contacting the office via e-mail at CB55@shawbiz.ca or by phone at 250-658-5558.
At the Centre: Fall Prevention, Studio, Art and Wednesday Bridge have started or have plans to start.
Outside the Centre: Walking with Dogs is continuing, the Walking Group will be restarting on June 18th with smaller group walks, and the Hiking Group will continue with smaller groups.
Ping Pong has been going strong and having lots of fun safe distanced in the courtyard.
Ongoing Golf is in full swing with two games per week that are always fully subscribed by enthusiastic members.
Pickle Ball has been having a lot of fun playing at McMinn Park.
Book Club has enjoyed meeting outside so much last summer that they plan to meet in Beaver Lake Park for June, July and August, weather permitting.
Happy Strummers have resumed outdoors.
Many other CB55 groups continue or plan to meet at outside locations through the good weather.
Men’s and Women’s Fitness, Fall Prevention, Digital Photography, Art Group, and Story Circle continue via Zoom at this time.
