Opportunities Await You
Hello Friends of BSSOS. As the impact of Covid19 continues to impact our daily lives in many ways we are also experiencing some resumption of normal activities. Dentists, hair salons, cafes, provide us with an opportunity to visit services that were once just a normal part of our day to day lives. Your social bubbles are hopefully expanding cautiously too. We are hearing of the joy of grandparents getting together with young ones, book clubs meeting in the park. There have been some local agencies providing in the park tutorials and gatherings too. Finding opportunities that relieve some of the isolation we have embraced feels like a positive move.
At BSOSS we are continuing to work on offering programs that provide opportunities to enrich lives. BSOSS was selected to be a site for the Ministry of Health’s Healthy Aging program. As we began to develop the programs that this new funding would support the shut down in March brought us to a halt. All of the programs we had designed and envisioned involved meeting together in our beautiful space at 2055 Rosser Ave.
We are hoping that these opportunities will open new doors to connect with others as a participant or a volunteer. Let us know your ideas for additional topics.
This club aims to give seniors and caregivers the opportunity of staying connected in the time of physical distancing. During these online casual gatherings we will chit chat while taking a sip on our favorite drinks. The topics are light and meant to bring everyone joy through sharing our positive experiences and memories, skills, knowledge and creativities to cope with this different times.
Eligibility: Seniors (55+) and caregivers. Due to technology and time limitations we can only have limited number of participants on each session. Please register today before all spots are gone.
