Covid- 19 Update from the Board
March 16, 3:00pm
Good Afternoon Members & Friends,
Due to the current and evolving news surrounding Covid-19, and receiving the news of our borders being closed, in our continuing efforts to keep our members and staff safe during the Covid-19 outbreak, the board has made the difficult decision to temporarily close the club effective immediately. The current plan is to remain closed through Easter Weekend - until the week of April 13.
We will closely monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available.
AGM - the board will schedule the AGM once Covid-19 pandemic is under control
Dance/Band Practices - the club is closed and practices will need to be rescheduled once we reopen
Meetings/Communication - the club is closed and the board will communicate electronically or via telephone
Paint Afternoon will be rescheduled - please contact the office if you would like a refund - otherwise your deposit is transferable for when we reschedule.
Our staff - we will be temporarily reassigning duties of our casual staff to do some much needed care, cleaning, inventory around the building and limit to maximum of 3 staff in the building at a time
Vendors - We are currently contacting our vendors to suspending re-occurring unnecessary services during this time
Camper Ball - refunds will be available, please contact the office
Payments to be made via mail, over the phone, or electronically
Doors Open Winnipeg - we have advised that we will not participate this year unless the pandemic is under control at that time
If you have any questions or concerns during this time, please reach out to any board member or the office. Should you know of anyone that does not have email, please advise them of our temporary closure; we will do our best to start calling members whose email addresses we don't have on file beginning Tuesday, March 17.
We will also be posting this notice on Facebook.
