No formal registration is required for Drop-In Activities. Drop-In activities are generally organized and run by volunteers from the Seniors Centre. Guests are welcome, and may attend up to 3 times without taking out a membership. Attendance to more than three sessions requires a membership.
There is a $1.25 drop-in fee for most activities. Some groups collect an extra 50 cents or a dollar to cover the cost of refreshments, a Christmas dinner or an occasional luncheon, etc. These fees apply to both members and guests.
Feel free to come along at any time and try out the activity, or activities, of your choice as our guest before deciding if you would like to become a member. We look forward to welcoming you.
