E.N.C.O.R.E. had another successful year - great instructors, super courses and many wonderful members. The new Board of Directors was elected September 6, at the Annual General Meeting. Thank you to all our amazing volunteers who work so diligently to keep this organization going. It is only because of your work and dedication that this organization survives.
Welcome New Members: We are delighted to have you become a part of this club. We expect that there will be someone at the reception desk to buzz members into the building and give required information. But please ask another member or instructor for the code to enter if there is no one at the desk.
Stack Chairs: We need your help in stacking chairs and folding tables at the end of classes and making sure the windows are locked at the end of the day. Please stack chairs by colour and style otherwise they will get stuck. We are all volunteers at E.N.C.O.R.E. so any assistance you can give is surely appreciated. Thanks to all of you who are so forthcoming.
Out of Town Registrations: Please access our web-site encoreseniors.com to view the courses being offered, print out the registration sheet, make your selections, write your cheque and mail it to the Registrar.
Christmas/Holiday Mixer: We look forward to seeing you at the party on December 7 at 3:30 pm. Please see the notice in this program.
E-Mail Addresses: If you have an e-mail address and did not receive your program by e-mail in the fall, please send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can include and/or verify your address.
Dinner Club: The very successful dinner club for members of E.N.C.O.R.E. takes place approximately every month at different restaurants in the city. Should you be interested in attending, please e-mail Gwen Goring at Seniorclubencore@gmail.com. Also, if you have any restaurant suggestions, contact Gwen.
Book Club: The book club at E.N.C.O.R.E. is a wonderful way to keep you reading! If you are interested in participating, please contact Suzanne Lafleur at (514) 982-0507 or email@example.com.
Book Exchange: We are pleased to offer a book exchange on both the 5th floor and in Room 110. If you take a book, please bring one. Jane Varney keeps the books organized and rotates the selections. There are lots of mysteries for those who love this genre, but many other selections as well.
First Aid Kit: There are first aid kits in Room 110 and in the kitchen on the 5th floor. Please make yourselves aware of these in case of emergencies. Also, some members of E.N.C.O.R.E. are allergic or extremely sensitive to scent, so please refrain from wearing perfume to class. They will appreciate it.
Emergency Exits: Please make sure you are aware of the Emergency Exit on the 5th Floor. Should there ever be a fire in our building at E.N.C.O.R.E., the regular staircase would also be available but the elevators would not. There is also a fire extinguisher in the 5th floor corridor as well as a smaller one in the kitchen.
Coffee, Tea and Cookies: are available in the 5th floor kitchen - 25 cents for coffee or tea & 10 cents for each cookie. Members really wanted to have cookies again so it has been reinstituted but please put your money in the bowl!! People from the morning classes take out the provisions & those from the afternoon must put them away. Make sure the coffee urn has been emptied and turned off at the end of the day. Lunch room facilities are available in the basement of the building where there is a machine with coffee and hot chocolate as well as a fridge and microwave.
