For 5 mornings during July, we had registration times for our new term of classes. There was glorious weather and we were well equipped with the new seating outside the café at DPCC. This allowed plenty of social distancing and a time to catch up with our friends. Thanks to all the DPCC staff who have helped to make this happen.This is not the first time since March ’20 where we have prepared to commence classes and we really hope that we will not be in lockdown again and that by the time you are reading this, we will be seeing each other regularly. For those who have already registered, you will know that we cannot return immediately to any classes where we share equipment. However, that leave us with enough of a choice to keep our brains and bodies exercised! At the moment we have Art, Croquet, French, Spanish, Photography, Pilates, Sit & Get Fit, Stronger for Longer, Tai Chi, and Yoga classes. As soon as we can move to the others like Singing & Music, Bowls, Pickleball, Table tennis, Bridge and Cards, we will let you know. As soon as activities begin.
We owe you money… we still have quite a few members who have not renewed their membership during the July dates for doing this. We have many members who were with us in 2020 when we had to shut down classes. Many members are carrying a small credit balance with us and we would encourage you to make contact and renew your membership card by just using some of your balance to cover it. If you want to do this, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or text the AAfA mobile 086 8806808 and let us know. We will be able to leave your new card for you to collect at the desk of DPCC. Don’t forget that your new card will give you discounts in the usual suppliers.
Are you new to the area or new to retirement – you just need to be 55+? You can call in to DPCC and collect an AAfA New Member form and fill it out and leave it for us. We can make contact and we will do our best to include you in classes as soon as possible.
