60th Anniversary: Celebrate the Memories!
The Islington Seniors Centre celebrates its 60th anniversary as a Seniors’ Centre this year. What an incredible milestone. We would like to hear from members, past members, volunteers or visitors about a favorite memory from the Centre over the years.
It could be that you met another senior and you are still the best of friends; you attended a great party and it was fun because…….. or you participated in a program and learned that…… it can be small or big. It may be a few sentences or half a page to describe your fondest memory. We will create a booklet of memories for anyone who would like to have a copy. If anyone visited the Centre when it was still Gordon’s Dairy, please share this too.
You can send in your submission by mail or by email to: [email protected]
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Centre is currently closed. We will re-open when we are advised by Public Health and the Province, according to their plans to restart all businesses and protect the safety and well-being of all residents.
Physical distancing, washing your hands before every program and wearing a mask will be mandatory when attending programs or visiting the Centre. There will be some changes as to how you can attend a program in order to keep everyone safe.
Pre-registration will be required for some programs that did not previously require registration in order to ensure physical distancing. Information is posted under the Programs tab and on the Daily schedule for any changes or requirements to specific programs.
Please continue to follow the recommendations of Public Health. Please stay safe.
Celebrating 60 years
The Islington Seniors’ Centre celebrates its 60th anniversary as a Seniors’ Centre this year! May 2020 marks 60 years of providing seniors with opportunities to socialize, share their talents and skills and become more active to maintain and improve overall health and wellbeing. The official name of the Centre is the Islington Centre—Etobicoke Senior Citizens to honour its location in Toronto. The Centre is known as the Islington Seniors’ Centre. We hope to be able to host an open house with refreshments later this year to celebrate this milestone.
