Well, the snow is here to stay, so instead of fighting it, let’s prepare for the holidays!

This year, we are helping seniors in Winnipeg with their holidays by participating in BE A SANTA FOR A SENIOR. Seniors who are impoverished and/or isolated are referred to this program by a health care professional and agencies who service older adults. They are asked what it is they need or would like and these wishes are filled through kind donations from the community! Gift Bulbs are created and hung from a tree, and those who are willing, can take a tag, record that they have taken one, and get the chance to be a Santa for a senior! (See what I did there?)

We will be hosting a tree this year by the reception desk. You are invited to support this program and return the gift wrapped with the gift bulb firmly attached by Thursday, December 5th.
The Winnipeg Winter Club has donated space to Be a Santa to a Senior for the last two years. They require space to store and wrap the gifts and then create a team of volunteers to deliver the gifts!

We are excited to give back to our community through our donation of space and by being a Tag pick up location for the program. If you have any questions about the program please do not hesitate to speak to Crystal at reception or Sharon in Membership.

Thank you for being a Santa to a senior this holiday season!

Our next complimentary starter squash class is coming up this Sunday, November 17th from 1:15-2:15 pm.

COURTS ARE GETTING BUSY - DO NOT WASTE YOUR BOOKED COURT

Reminder to all Members: If you managed to secure a court booking and are no longer able to use it, CANCEL the booking through the website or contact Front Reception as soon as possible. Another Member will want to book it and there is nothing more frustrating than walking by the tennis area and seeing a booked court not being used! Thanks for everyone's attention on this!
