The Transportation program: Are you a senior who doesn't like to drive at night – so you miss a community event you'd love to attend? Or you sometimes need a ride to go grocery-shopping, get to an appointment or meet a friend to chat. Just call Diana at 285-3630 to arrange a volunteer driver.

Seniors Outreach Worker, Marie Sheran:285-3950 visits seniors who want more information on our programs or who are recovering from illness or sometimes feeling a bit isolated.

Quadra Home Meals: Provides weekly meal orders to Island seniors or care-givers unable to cook regularly and to anyone dealing with illness or recovering from surgery. These tasty, nutritious meals are cooked specially for the program by the Gowlland Harbour Resort Chef. For $5 per meal you can order soup/stew with bun, or a small entree, or a full meal with fish or meat, vegetables and a starch. Food preferences, allergies and special diets can be accommodated. Meals can be reheated or frozen. Pick them up at the Community Centre on Wednesdays between 11:30am and 12 noon. If needed, the meals can be delivered by our volunteers. To order by Sunday noon call Marie:285-3950 or Lynda:285-3205

Friday Lunch: For everyone over 55 - please join us Fridays at 11am for armchair exercises with Ann Lawrence or at noon to 1:30pm for lunch (by donation) and a speaker in the Lower Level at 1281 West Road (Quadra Bible Church). On May 9th Jodi Simkin of Nuyumbalees Cultural Centre will talk about the Canada Day plans at Cape Mudge to coincide with the Ancestral Journeys canoes visit. Food prep volunteers are welcome at 9:30am: Karen 285-3477.
