Programs & Activities
On a daily basis, we have a small canteen service where we have hot and cold (non-alcoholic) beverages as well as snacks.
We create a monthly schedule which is posted in the centre but it is also mailed out to a variety of organizations around town. From the schedule you can choose what you would like to take part in. We are a drop in centre so you are free to pick activities or even just do your own thing.
We offer a card or board game on a daily basis
Weekly we offer:
- Arts and Crafts
- Movie day with popcorn
We also have a monthly guest speaker, it’s called CHAT session. CHAT stands for Community and Health Awareness Teaching Session. We invite representatives from other organizations in for a morning talk and a snack. Other community groups discuss what they have to offer, as well as various health and wellness talks.
Every other week, we take part in a bowling session at one of the local alleys. Once or twice a month during winter, we have a walking club but in summer we do that everyday. When weather permits we walk outdoors and otherwise we are transported to Memorial University and we use their walking track.
During summer we try to take advantage of nice weather. We have organized events such as mini golf, games in the park, BBQs and picnics. We also do spontaneous activities such as a walk to see a Cruise Ship or drop in to get an ice cream. We throw lots of parties to celebrate various holidays throughout the year, where we have games and snacks or we have a meal.
We have a phone where local calls can be made. We also have computers with internet and a modern TV with cable.
In June of 2013, we begun a partnership where a nurse from Eastern Health will visit the centre and help our members with medically related issues as well as helping them make connections to services within the community.
We are open to suggestions and ideas for things to do. We try to do spontaneous activities wherever and whenever possible.
