COMMUNITY CENTER ACTIVITES & COVID
In an effort to keep our community safe and follow the provincial guidelines COVID protocols are in effect in the center. Masks must be worn at all times, there is a sign in/out book at the top of the stairs, hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies. Anyone who enters the building must sign in/out, use the hand sanitizer and clean anything you have used, i.e. gym equipment, tables/chairs, kitchen items etc.
Halloween at the Center – Traditionally, North Granville has a community party instead of neighborhood trick-or-treating. This year, COVID has prompted us to adjust our traditions again.
Instead of a community party, children may participate in a drive up trick-or-treating outside the decorated community center between 5-7pm on Halloween evening.
Due to COVID regulations we ask anyone wishing to bring their children to trick-or-treat register in advance so we can ensure provincial guidelines are met (and to make sure we make enough treat bags for everyone) To register: call, text or email Sara at 902-916-3476 or email@example.com by Saturday, October 30th.
Everyone can lend a hand & help make this a magical, spooky evening for the children!
- Community members can drop off treats on Saturday & Sunday (Oct 30 &31st) by 1pm at the community center and volunteers will create treat bags.
- Volunteers can decorate the outside of the center for trick-or-treating fun.
- It would be lovely if pumpkins (carved or uncarved) were dropped off to be displayed!
- Do you have any decorations you could lend to spookify the center? Contact Sara at 902-916-3476 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Additionally, please feel free to offer Trick or Treating at your home as per provincial guidelines: https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/information/health-and-wellness/holidays-and-celebratons-guidance
Annual Tree Lighting – We are tentatively planning to hold the tree lighting event on Thursday, Dec 2nd.
Card Night – We are planning to restart card night in January. Look for details in the next newsletter.
Community library – the community has always offered a book exchange at the center. Feel free to drop off or pick up new reading material. We need another bookshelf to expand the library, if you have a spare please 1et us know.
Internet at the Center – The Center is now connected to Red Sands Internet service. Red Sands will be providing this service to the Center at no charge as part of the company’s local community support program. There is a guest account set up to allow Community members to access the internet from their car or within the center (with a door code).
Center Access – If you require a code, please contact Kellie: email@example.com or 906-620-8007.
AED at the Center – The Community Center has purchased and installed an automated external defibrillator (AED). It’s an easy-to-use, medical device that can analyze the heart’s rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock (defibrillation) to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm. The device is on the wall in the entrance of the Center and can be accessed by persons with a door entry or through a call to 911 (the AED is registered with 911 and EMS. They can provide a door code for emergency access if the AED is needed).
Center Rentals – Please contact Kellie to book: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 906-620-8007
Gym Equipment – Gym equipment will be relocated to the basement at the end of October.
