from Fred Rentschler, President
I can report that things are slowly getting back to normal at your Seniors Club. During the pandemic we were forced to go to electronic media only to communicate with you. A new program of Zoom meetings was launched and is still going strong. We also rented a sophisticated email newsletter program that allows us to make live links so that members can click and contact services, event organizers and group leaders. This allowed us to connect you with our Zoom activities and with city events. A new garden group and a new Qi Gong group were established via Zoom during the shutdown. The garden group put in a new garden next to the Senior Center. The Walking Buddies had to go on hold during part of the shutdown but are now back on the trail. The Creakers started playing softball this March. So our outdoor activities are up and running.
We delayed membership registration for 2021, hoping to get an idea of when we will be back in the building. We still do not know for sure when the building will reopen but we are planning for a return sometime this summer. Registration for 2021 opened in January and is ongoing. If you have not paid yet, I encourage you to do so soon, either by computer or mail-in. There are links to both options in this monthly newsletter.
