As the coordinator at the Seniors’ Resource Centre, I extend an open door invitation to local seniors and their families, community members, residents and volunteers to come in, check-out our renewed space and drop-by to say hello. The Seniors’ Resource Centre includes an open learning computer lab and enough space for small group meetings and gatherings, for anything from crafts to cards, courses or casual conversation.
The Centre is in full-swing and we’re currently building upon our offerings with a call-out for more service providers and volunteer support for our programs and administration.
A commitment from community partners and individuals will allow us to continue to add to our resources, programs and services, to help seniors and their families, in Metchosin and surrounding areas.
We are located in the former Metchosin Elementary School Building, which hosts a mix of tenants including Metchosin Arts and Cultural Community Association (MACCA). A unique blend of arts, culture and education, the addition of the learning lab will meet the unique needs of SIRC members, as well as other members of the community.
With support from the MSA Board, we will continue to provide encouragement and positive direction for expanding senior connections, communication and access, with the continuation and addition of more programs and user services.
In order to meet the needs of our local seniors, our immediate challenge is to increase the current base of local Service Providers and Support Volunteers. We welcome members of ALL ages! Your lifetime membership is only $20 and is available at the Seniors’ Resource Centre in Metchosin. Please call us at 250-478-5150 or drop by for a visit.
We look forward to your help in keeping Metchosin age-friendly.
