As COVID-19 continues to affect our lives, we all must do our part. We care about your health and wellbeing, which is why the BOAA Board of Directors have made the decision to temporarily close the doors of the Bowmanville Older Adult Association, in addition to the Catch the Ace Draw officially on hold with no ticket sales available at this time.

We are honoured to be a part of your lives and look forward to reopening soon. Please follow us on our Facebook page https://facebook.com/BowmanvilleOA or our website https://bowmanvilleolderadults.com to stay informed.
