Welcome to the Squamish Seniors’ Activity Centre Society website!

Bus Outing – sold out, sorry.
A trip to the movies, a Vancouver International Film Festival showing, on Saturday January 13. Leaving at 12:30 pm from the Centre (not 1 pm as mentioned before) and returning 6:00 pm. An intriguing film; many of you would remember this actress

This is given at a very nice Vancouver theatre where, I am told, you can have a drink in a civilized atmosphere.

Please indicate your interest by replying to this email as soon as possible so that Mare can finalize the arrangements.

Total cost estimated at $18.50 including transport, ticket cost and membership fees – sorry VIFF tickets are expensive and we don’t get a break.

Mike Sherlock very kindly agreed to drive us once again.

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story
Panorama | Vancity Theatre Screening

“Any girl can look glamorous; all she has to do is stand still and look stupid.” So declares Hollywood icon Hedy Lamarr, whose legendary beauty and affinity for scandal—denounced by the Pope at 18, six ex-husbands, drug addiction, financial ruin—blinded the world to the brilliant mind behind the invention of a secret WWII communications system that became the basis for modern WiFi and Bluetooth technologies.

Alexandra Dean’s debut feature is a revelatory and fabulously entertaining portrait of a remarkable woman who led multiple remarkable lives: the ravishing ingénue who scandalized Europe by simulating an orgasm on screen; the unhappy bride who fled from her fascist first husband with nothing but the jewels she had sewn into her coat; the thick-accented émigré who outmaneuvered Louis B. Mayer to land a lucrative Hollywood contract, and later defied the studio system to produce her own films; the brilliant inventor who advised Howard Hughes on airplane designs and patented a secret WWII torpedo navigation system; the American patriot who sold millions of dollars’ worth of war bonds; the destitute recluse arrested for shoplifting in a Florida drug store…

Democracy in Action. Ask the Mayor a question in person.
In a recent news release the District announced informal meet the Mayor sessions at 11 am of every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month in her office (election time must be coming up soon…). Wednesday, Sep 20 at 11 am would be a great time to come out and present any concerns you might have to the mayor. Or you might just want to come in support of other Seniors voicing their concerns.
