Hello All!

A couple of things have been brought to my attention that I would like to address.

First of all is Volunteering.

  • I have been told that people have volunteered and been turned away: The only time we would turn anyone away is if we have the positions filled already and there may not be space in whatever room we are using for anymore. 
  • I have volunteered and no one has called me: We don’t have as many volunteer positions as we once had at our old building so there is a good chance you may not be called on a regular basis. So, a few things that you might need to know as well: We screen our volunteers as it is a requirement for us to do so. If you have a mobility issue, you may not be a fit for a job that entails a lot of walking. If you have shaking (ie: Parkinson’s) you may not be safe to work with food or hot beverages. We don’t want you to burn yourself or anyone else. All of this is about keeping our volunteers and members safe.
  • You will see that we are now posting volunteer work in our Gazette, in our eblasts and on our social media for positions or special events that we are needing help with. To date, we are having great response with people filling these positions. And as we only have so many positions we might ask for 2 or 10 depending on the event or project and once we have enough then we don’t take anymore. 
  • We are currently looking for 34 positions to work our casino Dec 23rd, 24th and 25th . Not an ideal time, however it was the very last casino for the year and we felt it important that we take the opportunity because we could have a very long wait for the next one.
  • Our Garage Sale will be coming up in May 2024 and we will need a lot volunteers for that.

If you have not been called, please connect with me and we can sit down and discuss any concerns you may have. I would prefer if you book an appointment with me so that I can give you my undivided attention: Jeannette 403-289-4780 Ext 202 or email me at:

The second thing is Events.

  • So again we have people unhappy that they are not getting into our events. For a very long time we have been encouraging people to get signed up and paid as soon as possible. Now with the “Super Memberships” our classes and events are filling up to capacity, which means you have to get your tickets as soon as possible.
  • Our Christmas Lunch is next and it is a catered event, so we need people signed up and paid no later than November 23rd.

I hope this helps with any concerns you may have and if you have any other concerns please do not hesitate to call or email me.
