Your Information Source for Community Activities on the South Shore

With the relaxing of some governmental restrictions, ARC will be hosting a weekly Afternoon Social at the Legion in Greenfield Park on Tuesdays, between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. This is an opportunity for the community to socialize, participate in games, enjoy tea, coffee and snacks. All health and safety measures will be in place, advanced registration and masks are mandatory. See page 11 for complete details.

ARC as an organization couldn’t do all that we do without the contribution of our wonderful volunteers and as the world slowly opens up again, we will be looking for volunteers for various activities coming up this year. If you feel this is a commitment you would like to make, please contact us to be added to our Volunteer Pool. Contact or (514) 605-9500.

On Wednesday, April 21, CHEP will be presenting, The Expanding Role of your Community Pharmacist, with speaker Jean-Marc Belanger, Pharm D., Community Pharmacist. This presentation is offered by Zoom from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. Registration information will be sent out when it becomes available.

April 6 is National Caregivers Day. There’s a good chance that everyone who is reading this knows at least one. On this day, we honour and recognize the hard work and dedication that caregivers offer all year round.

Speaking of caregivers, did you know that we are now offering our Recharge Workshop for Caregivers in 5 different ways? In addition to taking the workshop on Zoom, you can also follow the complete training on our YouTube Channel, through borrowed DVDs or USB keys, and when permitted, back to in-person training. Full details of the options are available on page 4.

We’re counting down to ARC’s 10th Anniversary Celebration, planned for November 2021. For a trip down memory lane, have a look at the latest installment on page 6.
