PAL (55+) Needs You!

April 16, 2013

PAL (55+) is growing at an astonishing rate! In the past year alone program participation has grown by over 50% and many of our programs are full to capacity. We moved to a new location less than a year ago to accommodate this growth and are already out-growing the capacity of our current facility.

To fulfill our mission and vision, and to meet the needs of the 55+ community in South Winnipeg, PAL (55+) requires a home of our own.

Councillor Swandel extended his support to us in a message that was presented first at our Fundraising dinner in October and subsequently in a meeting of the Board of Directors, wherein Mr. Swandel offered to make a proposal to the City in the upcoming budget, to fund PAL’s acquisition of a facility of our own. This is a fantastic opportunity, with a tight timeline.

PAL needs to pull a plan together in the next 4-5 months; something that Mr. Swandel will be able to take to the city and advocate for on our behalf. We need your help to do this; we simply cannot do it without the support of our membership! We need people who can work with us to pull this plan together under this incredibly tight timeline. Specifically we need professionals who can serve on an advisory council who can be called on for their professional opinion in the areas of Law, Financing, Business Development, Insurance, Investments, Advocacy, Engineering, Architecture, Interior Design, Project Management, Real estate, General contracting and Budgeting. We also need individuals who are willing to serve on the Facility Committee that will be working together to pull it all together in the next 4-6 months.

PAL needs your support – please give generously!
