Message from Norm Goldstein

Hi Everyone.  I hope you are well during these trying times.
Keeping busy does seem to make these long days more bearable.  With the warmer weather I’ve been going for walks to exercise and online I’ve been playing Scrabble with some new friends I’ve met there.
Shelley and I enjoy playing Canasta here at home and also have a jigsaw puzzle on the go.  Incidentally, we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary last weekend.  My daughter posted these on her social media – of Shelley and I at our wedding and many years later at our daughter’s wedding.  How time flies!
I miss you all and the TSC and please know we will be back as soon as we are permitted.  Keep watching our site for the latest information.
Take care,
Norm Goldstein
President of TSC

What are you up to lately?

Hi everyone!  I hope you are continuing to be safe, sound and healthy.

If I haven’t already called you at home, please know that I am doing my best to personally reach out to as many Volunteers and Members as possible to say hello and offer help in any way.  It’s a slow process but it’s been so nice to chat with you.  So far, everyone I’ve spoken to is doing well and I’ve not heard of anyone contracting this virus.

I again urge all of you to make just a few phone calls each day to connect with fellow Members.  If you would like to reach someone but don’t have their details, please email and I will do my best to assist you.  Let’s all stay connected.  

To take a break from the constant news reports, I thought it might be fun to share photos of what you’ve all been up to during this physical distancing period.  Send your photo with a brief caption to to be included in a slideshow that I’ll post later this week.

Stay safe everyone!  Warmly,  ~Cindy

Checking In

Hello Everyone.  We hope you are well and safe at home in this challenging time.

The internet, tv and radio are doing a good job of keeping us all current on the COVID-19 situation.  We trust you are following the instructions of government officials and healthcare professionals to protect yourself and others.

At this time, there is no indication of when the Thornhill Community Centre or the Club will reopen.  Please continue to check the City of Markham website for the most up to date information on COVID-19 and City services.

During this period of social distancing, we encourage you to reach out to your fellow Members.  A simple phone conversation is all it takes to check in and lift someone’s spirits.  Online video chat apps like Zoom, Skype and Face Time are also wonderful tools for staying connected.

We will get through this together.

Take good care and we hope to see you back at the Club soon.

P.S. Good News, Carpet Bowlers.  Your 2 new mats have finally arrived!  A little something extra to look forward to when we reopen.
