ATHABASCA & DISTRICT SENIORS SOCIETY NEWSLETTER December 18, 2022


Happy New Year!

The Board met on Tuesday this week and conducted its normal monthly business. While the year-end financials are not yet finalized, it is safe to say that our expenses exceeded our revenues by approximately $7,000. This is the third year in a row that expenses exceeded revenues. This was even a year where we worked a casino and our net profit was roughly $25.000. The earnings from casinos are still good but not nearly as high as in the past. Our next scheduled casino is the weekend of April 14. If you would like to volunteer to work the casino, there is a sign-up sheet posted at the Seniors Centre.

In terms of expenses, we are currently working on reducing our costs by changing utility providers. Our next fund-raising activities are Bingo, which happen on the 1st , 3rd, and if applicable, the 5th Monday of each month and our Pancake Breakfast which is on January 31 from 7:30-10:00 am. Last year our average profit from our breakfasts was $600/breakfast. We hope to see you there. Your support is appreciated.

Our current schedule of activities is:
Radio Theater: Mondays 2:00-3:30 pm
Exercise: Mondays and Wednesdays: 11:00-12:00 am
Bridge/Canasta: Tuesdays: 1:00-4:00 pm
Line Dancing: Wednesdays: 2:00-3:00 pm
See the Activities page for updates.

As noted in the December newsletter, the Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, February 16, 2023. A soup and sandwich lunch will be provided (12:00-1:00). The meeting will commence at 1 pm. Please come earlier if you have not yet purchased your 2023 membership. Cost is $10. We are currently looking for individuals to serve on the Board.
