Protect your Facebook.
You will have heard in the news about the potential collection of your private information by snooping apps running on Facebook. You can disable these apps as explained in the attached CBC NEWS article. I followed the instructions – they work and are not difficult. Put your grand-kids to work…   LINK 

When to Take CPP?
Read this item by the Globe’s Rob Carrick.

Better at Home programme.
You may want to know about the assistance offered by our Provincial Government in their “Better at Home” programme. It is meant to keep Seniors in their homes longer by providing low cost assistance with housekeeping chores including light yard work, grocery shopping etc.
The cost for these services is income dependent.
The details are in the brochure; via this link.

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…). This 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.

Clock Tower Café
Now open – Link.

Bus update:
The 15 passenger Ford VAN/BUS is now available to us. If you have any suggestions for an outing please contact the front desk.

    I am glad to see the new website . I have not noticed the boxes and surveys around town but will keep looking. Would it be possible to have a link to the survey for those who would rather do it online?
