Dear Members
Hope you have a great SUMMER! Well, let’s forget about our so-called Alberta SUMMER, and FALL in love with the upcoming program season. I’m so proud to say as one of the leading edge senior centres in Edmonton, Westend Seniors Activity Centre offers the most diverse, vibrant and engaging programs to seniors and their families in the greater Edmonton area. I  encourage you to try different classes and drop in activities because you may not even realize you have the talents or interests if you don’t try it or challenge yourself.

 

Since Summer has been so depressing (I just can’t believe we didn’t really have a Summer this year), I would like to cheer you up by sharing with you some positive testimonials from our members who have enjoyed our Centre’s program and services so much.

 

I’m new here and I’ve been coming here for a couple of months. I’ve been made to feel very welcome, right from the front office, to the people in the card game that I play in, to the people in the lunch room. It’s been a very, very pleasant experience!” – A new member

 

This Senior Centre in particular has that warm feeling. When you come in, if you happen to be sitting down at the table on you own, someone will say to you:’come and join us!’ I’ve never heard any nastiness, I think that is important because seniors are not separate from what happens with young people. We don’t see that here! The little event, such as the BBQ, some things like that give you something to do in the evening.  Many seniors don’t have somewhere else to go or someone to connect with, but I see more connections here!” – A member who has been to different senior centres

 

They now have the parking for disabled people. They [the staff] listened to that [the suggestion]! The other thing they listened to is the toilet. When you have a disabled person, you need proper toilet area for them to use. And they listened to that too. So I have been listened to twice, two things that were important to me!” – A long term member who has joined the Centre for 12 years

 

I hope you also have the same positive warm feelings about this great Centre!

 

Westend Seniors Activity Centre is always known for our amazing events. This year, as you can see from the poster in this page, WSAC will start hosting joint events with our community partners. Through win-win partnerships, our Centre will bring more great programs and events to you. If you don’t want to miss all the exciting opportunities, in addition to our monthly newsletter, you can follow us on Facebook, sign up for the e-newsletter, watch the YouTube Channel and always check out our informative website. We look forward to connecting with you in every possible way.
