Merry Christmas & a Note from TSC President

A Message from the President of the Thornhill Seniors Club

“Although the past few years have been difficult for many of us due to the pandemic, I am so pleased that our Club has rebounded beyond my expectations.  This was only possible with the dedication of our amazing Volunteers, including the Front desk, Cafe, Administration and the many Activity Convenors who share their valuable time to help deliver quality programs and services to our Members.  We sincerely thank each and every one of you for your service.

In the past year we have seen our Club change and grow in amazing ways.  We’ve listened to Membership feedback to help create new programs that interest them.  What was once a fitness class of 10 has turned into 40 or more (we love that people are getting out of the house and being active again!).  The demand for Seniors Pickleball has exploded (a BIG thank you to our VP, Don Tai and to City Programmer, Brian Bailey for heading up our new Pickleball committee).  Our Heintzman House social events have sold out within days with A+ reviews and our Travel department had no trouble filling the busses.

Overall, we are incredibly proud to be meeting the current needs of Seniors in our community.  Thank you to all returning and new Members for your participation.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy Holiday to everyone.  I look forward to seeing you again in 2023.”

Sincerely,

Norm Goldstein
