This year your membership also provides discounts through several of the merchants in Qualicum Beach and Parksville. Everyone who signs up for a membership will be eligible for the monthly draw for a Quality Foods gift card.

Winter is almost over!
We are now starting to feel a little warmth in the sun and the early spring flowers are starting to appear. It’s a great time to go out and enjoy the amazing scenery and to visit the attractions in our community.
If your downtown, take a moment and walk past the club Activities Centre to view the fantastic Valentine window art that Julie Starkey has produced for us. As usual, they are fantastic. We will be keeping them up until the end of the month in recognition of the ongoing contributions being made by our front-line workers.
We continue to offer online, interactive activities via zoom. Please check the Activities section on this site for contact information, registration and the zoom links needed to participate.
And, if you are missing being able to travel, visit our Virtual Travel section under Activities. Every day there is a different opportunity to participate in documentaries, interviews, musical presentations, culinary shows and cultural experiences.
If you sign in a little before the daily program starts, you are able to send questions to the presenters which may be answered during the program. Each week features a different region and we will post the itinerary on this site.

It is an unfortunate reality that as seniors focus on their health amid the pandemic, con artists and scammers are looking to exploit their personal information and profit from these challenging times.
According to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, more than 18,000 Canadians reported fraud in the first four months of 2020 – nearly half of the total number of cases for 2019. Canadians have lost $22.6 million to fraud.
Many of these scams target seniors directly. As Laura Tamblyn-Watts, the CEO of National Seniors’ Advocacy Organization CanAge said recently, the virus, combined with scamming attempts, represent “the perfect storm of targeting our vulnerable people.”
