Be Calm, Be Kind and Be Safe

Reopening starts this month!

Reopening Plans

SSAC will start reopening this month of September and we look forward to inviting our members back. We are taking small steps to ensure you are welcomed into a safe environment and we ask for everyone’s patience over the next few months as we work out kinks in the process that are sure to appear. It has been a long nineteen months and we are still dealing with ongoing and changing restrictions. With most of our members in a higher risk category for negative consequences to viral infection the Board continues to be cautious in all decisions.

Masks or face shields are required in common areas such as the lobby, halls and washrooms. Individual room capacities remain at reduced levels (posted on doors) to ensure physical distancing is maintained. We will be asking members to disclose if they are fully vaccinated, as this will permit masks to be removed for some activities and for dining in at the Centre. We will have posters throughout the Centre, along with copies of the rules and activities for which masks may be removed. For our members who have not been fully vaccinated, you are welcome to enjoy take-out from our kitchen, and we ask that masks be worn at all times. Dine-in lunches are for fully vaccinated members only, as masks must be removed for eating.

Please remember to bring your membership card with you for every visit. Past/Future members who need assistance with renewing or buying new memberships are welcome to come to the Office on weekdays from 11 to 2 starting immediately.

Some dates to remember:

September 10, 11, 12 and 13: Elections Canada advance polling – auditorium
September 20: Canada Votes and Elections Canada – auditorium
September 21: Kitchen opens for dine-in with hot meal service

Take out services continue Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays until the 17th.

After the 21st, the kitchen is closed Mondays and Thursdays.

We plan to be fully open October 4th for kitchen and activities. We are excited to be welcoming you back as we long for the social connections we have been missing for so long.

Takeout food service continues until September 17.

Frozen entrées, soup and sandwiches on Tuesday and Thursday, Fish & Chips (made to order) on Fridays. Hours are 11am–2pm all three days.

The kitchen opens for dine-in hot meal service starting September 21.

Life Membership Recipient

We would like to acknowledge this year’s Life Member – Kit Artus. Her work on the board has been invaluable, and with style and dignity, she has kept all of us on our toes.

Frozen Entrées

One of the most beloved of programs offered at SSAC has had nothing to do with exercise, or learning, or even socialization. It has to do with food!
