Ongoing events

Shelly’s online coffee breaks continue Tuesday June 23 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. [ details ]

The cafeteria takeout menu is here.

The Good Cheer group continues on Facebook. Why not drop by for a look? You’ll have to join to see much, but you can get the idea. We’re up to 106 members, and it’s always a nice day in there.

Thanks to the mask-makers

Century House Association is giving a big shout out to member Jane Hicks and new arrival in New Westminster, Wendy Yip, for their donation of free reusable masks to Century House.  Erika Nikula also made a substantial donation of fabric. Your generous donation of your time and materials for the masks are much appreciated.

Members who want to protect the people around them by wearing a mask but have not been able to get them or who need more can stop by Century House between 10 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. to pick one up. There are still some left as both Jane and Wendy have continued to replenish the supply.

Again, our sincere thanks to these members for their generosity.

  1. The Little Black Book of Scams (link provided) is a great source of information. Great to have on-line but also to have available in a printed format and posted in some relevant places (after COVOID), would be really helpful as a constant reminder. Thanks for providing it.
