Message from the President

Here we are nearing the middle of July and we are finally getting the summer weather, although it could be a little cooler. I never thought I would ever be pushing for cooler weather.

The time of year when everyone is out and about with vacations, heading to the cottage, camping or relaxing on the patio, it is great to just get outside after being cooped up all winter. How ever you are spending your time, I hope you are taking care to be safe and enjoy being outdoors.

The summer means good times at Birkdale as well with the free Hamburger Day, Ice Cream Week, as well our Hoedown Luncheon coming in September ($5.00) with live country entertainment. Who knows we may throw in some more freebies during the next couple of months.

What is new at Birkdale? We have purchased a new colour printer and laptop, so that we can print more colourful newsletters, Luncheon tickets, posters to let you know what is coming up. We will also print new Volunteer badges as well. There is a new water fountain that the city has installed I think it is great as you can not only get a drink of cold water but you can fill up your water container as well.

I would like to thank all the members of the executive committee for their work and effort put forth to make all the events so far a success, I would also like to thank all the volunteers who give of their time. Volunteers as we all know are the heart and soul of Birkdale, without volunteers in the kitchen, running the various card games, dominos, mahjong and bingo games, we would not be the centre that we are.

I would also like to thank all the members who support all our functions. Thank you to Raymond, Debbie and the young ladies Sabrina, Malinda and Julie who filled in for Karen while she was away. They did a great job.

I have used up my allotted space, so on behalf of your Executive Committee, we wish everyone a fun filled safe summer. don’t worry, before you know it the cold weather will be back and you can once again get out there and build a snowman.

Have a great summer.

Bruce Frew
