Membership Drive & Picnic
Every year since, 2011, PAL has hosted a community picnic and membership drive, often times with a theme.
We celebrate the start of a new year for our programming. We have vendors, speakers, entertainment, food and registration for programs. We encourage members to renew their memberships and sign up for fall programming.
Holiday gatherings are very enjoyable afternoons with participation growing each year. Often scheduled for mid December.
Originally designed to provide a registration opportunity for the Winter session, the Holiday gathering has become so much more – a time for holiday fun, sharing and laughter for the members of the community.
Our Holiday gatherings have featured displays of Watercolour Art , entertainment, vendors and demonstrations of new programs.
Zing Into Spring
March 2010 marked our 1st Annual Spring Event. With the onset of spring and the excitement of longer days and warmer weather, it is the perfect time for a gathering of friends and a great opportunity to introduce new classes for the spring programming session!
Program demonstrations offer curious participants an opportunity to catch a glimpse into what to expect in a program of interest. Past demonstrations have included: Older Adult Weight Training, Ballroom Dance, Meditation, Zumba Gold and Urban Poling.
As well as program registrations, Zing into Spring is also a great opportunity to pick up their Spring newsletter at this time.
Annual General Meeting
Our AGM is scheduled in June. It is a yearly gathering of all current PAL (55+) members. The Board of Directors will present our annual report, which contains information about the activities of the year. It is in collaboration with our volunteer appreciation.
Volunteer Appreciation is the act of thanking our volunteers and recognizing their contributions to our organization. “Thank you’s” are part of it, we also have gifts and lunch.
