Waterdown Out of the Cold program kicked off Nov. 2 at Knox
Just in time for the cooler weather, the 2022-23 Hamilton Out of the Cold Program started Nov. 2 at Knox Presbyterian Church in Waterdown and multiple locations around the City of Hamilton.
Every Wednesday from 4-5 p.m., those hungry for a hot meal can drop by the church at 80 Mill St. North and pick one up. Organizers ask that individuals stay safe by wearing a mask and maintaining six feet for social distancing.
Anyone interested in volunteering is asked to email email@example.com. The Waterdown program runs weekly until March 31.
The Flamborough Seniors Centre is building its volunteer board of directors and looking to fill multiple roles. The board helps plan activities and plays an essential role in the smooth operations of the centre.
If you have leadership skills to lend and are interested in learning more, drop by the centre at 163 Dundas St. East, head to the Waterdown Library building and speak to staff. Nominations close on Nov. 7. Elections will be held during the centre’s annual general meeting on Nov. 17.
The Flamborough Seniors Centre will be hosting the Westover Artists Art Show from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19. This is a fantastic opportunity to browse the talented work of local artists and pick out something wonderful for someone special.
There are several drop-in programs at the centre with space for new members. The Cards and Chat group from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday mornings is a great opportunity to meet new friends, play cards — or learn to play cards. Similarly, the Learn to Quilt, Knit and Crochet and the Progressive Euchre and Bid Euchre programs on Friday afternoons are happy to welcome both new and experienced crafters and card players.
Drop-in is from 12:30-3:30 p.m. For more information about all Flamborough Seniors Centre activities, call 905-546-2424 ext. 6315.
The Ignite Virtual Youth Volunteer Fair will be held on Nov. 5. Youth volunteers can register at info.volunteertoronto.ca/ignitefair and learn about amazing Flamborough opportunities.
If you work or volunteer with a non-profit that has a community event scheduled, feel free to post details on the Flamborough Connects community events page at www.flamboroughconnects.ca/community-events and we’ll help get the word out!
