Thanks to your generous donations we are very close to raising the $7000 for a very good LED lighting system for the Hall/Gym. The lights will be completely dimmable so we can have them full blast for high task events such as sports and softer for other uses such as dinners or weddings.
We are still a few hundred dollars shy of our goal of $7000, so if you feel the urge to give, please make out a cheque to the Denman Seniors and Museum Society with a note that it is toward the lighting in the gym (so that it won’t just go into our general revenue) and put it in the Seniors binder in the Freepost at Abraxas or mail it to DSMS at P.O. Box 28. You will receive a receipt for tax purposes.
The Annual General Meeting of the Denman Seniors and Museum Society (DSMS), also known as the Activity Centre, will be held on November 15th at 7:30 pm at the Activity Centre. At this short meeting, you can hear about the events and work that have been happening over the past year.
The Easter Egg hunt, Taste of Denman, Table Tennis Tournament and the Christmas Craft Fair all feature prominently. These are in addition to the many regularly scheduled events taking place, things like badminton, dance, yoga, poker, table tennis, pickleball, Seniors’ lunches and so much more.
The Museum has been modernized with new displays and lighting, along with a specialized exhibit over the summer. Have you noticed the whale bone that hangs over the museum entrance?
Of course, the building requires constant attention and maintenance. You will see the new roof at the entryway which will keep you dry on rainy days. The yard has been cleaned up and a new path system connects us to local businesses.
The DSMS board hopes you’ll attend the AGM, hear all about us, perhaps join the board, volunteer for a task or event, or maybe open your wallet to donate to the latest project, which is to replace the lights in the gym. Whatever your interest is, you’ll likely find it met here. Membership in the Society costs only $10 and you can sign up on November 15th. Refreshments will be served. See you there!
