OPEN HOUSE: Everyone is Welcome. Seniors Housing is hosting two dates to show off the latest duplex - if you have not been inside a finished suite now is your chance. Wednesday March 2nd 2:30 to 4:00pm and Sunday March 6th 1:00 to 4:00pm. If neither of these dates work for you - call Val at 2841 to arrange a viewing.

POST CONSTRUCTION: The Board is busy fundraising. In addition to a mortgage, the Board needed to secure interim financing, and are now working to pay down the debt. Join us in the next few months for some fun activities.

UPCOMING EVENTS: On Monday March 7th (note date change), the Heriot Bay Inn is dedicating one of their speaker series to Seniors Housing as a fundraiser. Cellist, Phil Hansen will give a speaking and musical performance over dinner. An enthusiastic educator of music, Phil is on the faculty of the Academie Musicale Internationale in Provence, France. He was a guest of the Shanghai Conservatory of Music as artist-in-residence and teacher to China’s top young musicians. Among prizes and honours awarded as a student, Phil was twice selected to participate in the prestigious Piatigorsky Seminar for Cellists, providing for intensive study with Yo-Yo Ma and William Pleeth. For reservations call the HB Inn 285 3322.

On Saturday April 16th 8pm, John Toelle is pulling together local talent, including Smooth Edge, for an old style Quadra coffee house. Come out and celebrate the completion of our two duplexes. The Seniors Housing Society will be acknowledging all of the great tradespeople who have helped support this project with their generous donations of labour and materials. So mark April 16th on your calendar and watch for more info as this evening extravaganza develops.

APPLICATIONS: To live in Seniors Housing you must be 65 years and older. The housing is for Quadra Seniors who, for many diverse reasons, need to change their accommodation. It is intended for Seniors of low to moderate income. If this is of interest to you in the next five years, we would like to hear from you now. There is room to build one more duplex on the property and we are talking with BC Housing. A list of potential tenants helps our application for a grant. If you are interested in adding your name to the list, call Jeanne at 285 2835 evenings. This information is confidential and does not require a commitment on your part.
A job very well done
