The warm and welcoming atmosphere of the Birkdale Community Centre offers a place for seniors to enjoy meeting new people and take part in a wide variety of activities. A visit to Birkdale will show you that it is bustling with activity, whether it is card games, crafts, shuffleboard, snooker, dance and exercise classes or people just enjoying chatting over a coffee.
In addition to the regular activities, The Birkdale Seniors offer travel trips, day trips, celebration lunches, Saturday Night Dance, Monday night euchre and more.
A Message from the President
I apologize that this message is not being written in the oval office, the office is being spruced up. I am perched on a 7th floor overhang with a panoramic view of leafless trees and various squirrels’ nests, it’s beautiful.
The theme of this message is let’s do more. The executive committee will be planning the social events for the year, sometime in January. These events will be the committee’s way of giving back to Birkdale members, in one way or another.
Further to these events I would like to expand the giving back, to include the community. The Salvation Army does a great job in providing assistance to individuals and groups where required on a year round basis. I would like for the Birkdale Older Adults, to work with the Salvation Army in offering our assistance by way of financial donations at various times during the year, food donations all year, not just Christmas.
Involvement in giving back to the Community, requires the okay from the Birkdale members, I would therefore like your opinion on this idea. There is a suggestion box is at the front desk when you enter and sign in, using the suggestion form let me know what you think. Maybe you have an idea you would like to see used.
I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the Executive Committee, to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year.
We will be closed on,
Monday Feb. 18th– Family Day
Friday April 19th– Good Friday
Monday April 22nd – Easter Monday
