Covid Bulletin #57


Dear Valued WWC Members,

First and foremost, we would like to thank to all you for what you have done already to weather this crisis and to cope with COVID-19 and the Club’s closure due to CODE RED. Your commitment makes all the difference. We would also like to reassure you that as a Club we are resilient. Over the course of 92 years, we have seen – and mastered – many challenging moments. We are convinced that we will overcome this one too.  The Board, working hand in hand with our Management Team, continue to analyze the Club’s financial position and monitor all expenses throughout this difficult time, responding to conditions as necessary.  Ultimately, the Board has a fiduciary responsibility to protect the Club and be a good custodian of the assets. This is our duty to all of the members/shareholders.
 

WHAT WE HAVE DONE THUS FAR and CONTINUE TO DO:
 

  • WWC Staff have largely been reduced down to a minimal number of essential administrative and maintenance people; staff in positions such as the front desk, locker rooms, child services, junior lounge, trainers, and some maintenance staff have in fact been laid off.  
  • Provincial regulations and our insurer require certain staff be maintained.  An example of this, our Ammonia Plant requires us to have an Engineer on site to comply with insurance and security requirements. 
  • We are taking full advantage of the Federal Government’s CEWS program which is contributing significantly to the wages of the Club staff that have been retained.
  • All told, we are working to cut any operating expenses  and have achieved over $70,000 reduction in monthly expense which includes deferral of our mortgage payment.  Despite laying off staff, reducing operating expenses to the bare minimum and benefitting from the Canadian Emergency Wage Subsidy program, other operating costs are still incurred and must be paid for by the member-owners.    

As a result of these measures, we were able to extend a reduction of 33% monthly membership dues reduction to members for January.

Thank you for your continued support. It means so much to all.  We appreciate your patience as we navigate this closure once again.  Stay healthy, stay safe and remember, we are all in this together.

Sincerely,
Your WWC Management Team and Board and Directors
