A Message from our President

Read it here.

**************************************

To: All Our Kanata Seniors Council Members:

As you are well aware, we are in the midst of a serious health event.  Because the Kanata Seniors Centre is closed, we are not able to produce our monthly Senior News Letter. Here are a couple of items.

It has been decided that we will cancel the upcoming Retirement Living Fair planned for April  as well as all of our scheduled trips and activities. Of course our Cafe is shut down.

On a more positive note, as many of us are stuck at home, we’ve added a new feature to our website. The “Cafe Corner” will feature easy-to-make recipes from our Cafe Chefs for your culinary pleasure.

We will continue to update this website with further information as soon as it is available. Please continue to monitor this site.

Hang in there! All our fantastic services will be restored asap.😃

Thanks,

Kay Dubie,  KSC President
