Message from the Community League 

Fall 2021

 

We hope all of you had a great summer and that you were able to visit with loved ones, family and friends. As we write this, we are very aware our world may have changed yet again. We are hopeful that our regular programming this fall and early winter will be in person. Please check out the newsletter for the variety of events coming up! **With COVID-19 numbers and restrictions where they are, please watch the website and social media for any programming changes.

 

The municipal election will be held in October and we have partnered with our neighbouring community leagues to host a town hall for the candidates running in our ward - Ward Anirniq. The town hall will be held at our community centre on September 28th, 2021 at 7:30 pm. We plan to live stream the forum and some seats will be available at the community centre to attend in person. Questions will not be taken at the forum and must be submitted in advance. Details below on how to submit a question and reserve a spot in person or connect online (see Arnirniq Candidates’ Forum). 

 

We would like to acknowledge our new Federal Statutory Holiday on September 30th, National Day for Truth & Reconciliation. We encourage all of you to spend some time reflecting on our country’s history and ongoing legacy of residential schools, and positive ways of moving forward.

 

We also encourage all of you to join us at our Virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Monday, October 25th at 7:00 pm. Please note this is an online event. To RSVP and join us online, please contact Arlene at arlene.huhn@woodcroftcl.org

 

We look forward to seeing you in person or online at our programs!

Devices Needed for Vulnerable Seniors

 

Project Joy – is a group of dedicated volunteers providing family connections to isolated seniors – one dusty smartphone and tablet at a time. Seniors are not only vulnerable to COVID-19, they are also most vulnerable to isolation.  Project Joy will continue their work beyond this pandemic to ensure seniors have the devices they need to connect to family and communities.  Unfortunately they cannot take all devices. Please visit www.projectjoy.ca/ for information on devices (iPhones, iPads, Tablets, and Android Phones) and drop off locations.
