Update March 31:   

Good afternoon, Members.


You may have heard on the news that the City has closed parks and many other facilities.  It was confirmed by our City Booking Agent that one of the facilities affected is the Ken Ross Field House - home of the Barrhaven Seniors' Centre.  

Therefore, the Barrhaven Seniors' Centre building is closed until at least June 30th. All of our other activities and social gatherings are also cancelled. 

Your Board of Directors is having a virtual meeting mid April to assess the situation and consider re-opening procedures. At this time, we are closed indefinitely.

Be sure to check out our News tab at the top of this page for the latest update.   There you will find a "four page" collection of recommendations for "Seniors At Home" - provided by the South Nepean Community Health Centre.  

Isolation is very unhealthy. While we may not be able to take part in regular social activities, we can reach out to one another by phone or email to ensure that no one is left on their own without some form of contact with others.

Community Notice:   In view of the Covid - 19 pandemic and the need for social distancing to try to contain the virus the Barrhaven Garden Club has cancelled its April 8th meeting. 

Do keep in touch. If you have suggestions for how we cope over the next several weeks, please send them to me.

Wishing everyone good health.
