Update September 1, 2020:
Closed Until 2021
Good afternoon, Members.
You may have heard on the news that the City has begun to open certain facilities. However, the "Barrhaven Seniors' Centre" is not large enough to accommodate the size of our groups and social distancing requirements as outlined under the guidelines from Ottawa Public Health.and the City of Ottawa.
Therefore, the Barrhaven Seniors' Centre building is closed until at least January 2021. All of our other activities and social gatherings are also cancelled.
Your Board of Directors is having a virtual meeting in September to assess the longer term impacts on our activities. However, at this time, we continue to be closed indefinitely.
Our "Annual General Meeting" is now governed by provisions set forth by the government's guidelines "Annual Meetings of Federal Corporations During the COVID-19 Outbreak." Therefore, the planned AGM for November 2020 will not be held. As the pandemic continues to impact the holding of meetings of large groups, the Board will discuss this and other matters at their September meeting.
Virtual groups are taking part for Chair, Library Book Club, Writer's Circle and other selected groups. I will send an update about other groups programs in the near future.
Hoping all of you are well and finding ways to keep socially connected with friends and family under public health guidelines.
Wishing everyone good health.
Donald Winchester, President,
Barrhaven Seniors' Council,
