A Note From Our President

Thanks to everyone who attended our first meeting on Wednesday.  We had a great turnout and the technology gods seemed to smile upon us.  The link to the recording is now available on the website and it will be available until end of day on September 30.
 
We have a great lineup of activities planned for the year.  Remember that there is no expectation that you will participate in everything!  Think of it as a buffet and get involved in the things that grab your interest and that you feel you have the time to do.  
 
We’re monitoring the situation with COVID and the provincial health restrictions.  We’ll let you know if we need to adjust our plans as we get closer to each event.  At the moment, the Canmore Recreation Centre is planning to remain open under the REP guidelines (what we would all call the vaccine passport) so we will be able to continue to have in-person meetings for everyone who is fully vaccinated.  Of course, this could change on short notice.  We will also offer a Zoom connection for those of you who need to limit your contact with others.  We aren’t sure yet if we can do Zoom for in-person workshops.
 
If you have not yet renewed your membership, please do so as soon as you can.  It’s quick and easy on the website with your credit card, but there are other options available too.  And of course, if you need help, reach out to our wonderful membership coordinators.
 
We’re looking for one or two people to back up Catherine R., our new Zoom Mother, in case she is unable to attend a meeting.  Training is available and it isn’t hard.  It’s also good for your brain to be challenged in new and weird ways!  Please help out if you can.
 
Thanks so much to Jillian R., who has volunteered to help Catherine R. with our Bylaw update, and to Cathy S. who has agreed to organize our photo montage for Show & Share!
 
Please come out for a few minutes on Sunday, October 17 at 3 pm at the courtyard of St. Michael’s Church in Canmore.  We’ll be drawing the winner of our gorgeous raffle quilt then.
 
Speaking of the Raffle Quilt, don’t forget to return your ticket stubs to Karen or Chris no later than Friday, October 8.
