October 2023 E-News
Welcome to Fall and to new and returning SW55+Connect (SWC) members.
It has been a year since September 2022, when we set up SWC as a non-profit group serving seniors in SW Calgary. We are really thrilled by the interest in our group, with nearly 600 Meetup members and 85 paid-up SWC members. We continue our synergistic
relationship with Cedarbrae Community League Association and are forging connections with other senior serving organizations.
Remember our self-funding group relies on membership dues and volunteers to support the programs we have offered and want to continue to offer.
Watch out in the future for details on more programs, another Rosebud theatre bus trip, a Halloween party with a band, and a Christmas party with entertainers. Also a member-
organized a tour of a Rum producer this month (thanks Maureen.)
We publicize interesting and fun senior-centred activities in our area, so please let us know of new events to promote. Also are you willing to volunteer and run a session on something you are passionate about?
MeetUp (private group) is the place to register for any of our activities and to join our growing active group. You need to join MeetUp to sign up for SWC activities. But you need to join, pay, and sign a waiver to become a SWC member to participate regularly in SWC activities. Get the application from our website. Thanks to Ana our volunteer website manager.
Our new membership year begins January 1st so stay tuned for details. From July 1,
membership for the calendar year is only $10 (normally $20) so bring along new friends to
enjoy these activities.
Your friends at SWC: Julie, Sheila, Debra, Sonja, Ted
