Good Afternoon BOAA Members, Volunteers and Community Partners 

It’s hard to believe that it has already been two full years since the COAA was relaunched as an independent not-for-profit registered charity, now known as the Bowmanville Older Adult Association. Thanks to our committed and hardworking members, volunteers, community partners, Board of Directors and staff we are celebrating another successful year and looking forward to 2018. 

At this time, we are excited to announce that the BOAA team members will be reorganizing to serve our membership moving forward. Over the next few weeks, we will be making the following transitions within our team:

– Les-Lee Bell will be taking over as Volunteer Coordinator along with all aspects of our volunteer programming.  Les-Lee will be working to schedule, train, recruit and recognize our amazing volunteers.  

– Chelsea Wolf will be overseeing all aspects of our Events & Fundraising Department.  Working closely with Sharon Mansfield in Catering & Hospitality to provide an amazing slate of coming events for 2018.  Chelsea will continue her focus on Marketing & Promotions while Sharon M will focus extra efforts on the success of our Cafe. 

– Dorothy and Bill Lawrence have been our amazing behind-the-scene cleaners at the BOAA working nights for many years … starting in the New Year you will see this fine couple working during the day to stay on top of our daily maintenance and cleaning needs in partnership with Tom, Robin, Jeffery, Corey and Glenn.

– Amanda Rutherford will be refocusing her hours and attention within the Administration Department providing assistance for the needs of our staff and members. In addition, Amanda will continue with Klipz located on the 2nd level of the BOAA.

Sharon S (Transportation), Veronica (Programs), Stella (Administration & Finance), Ann (Weekend Staff), Julieta (Weekend Staff) and myself (Executive Director) will all continue to work with all of the BOAA team members to assist while continuing within our current roles. 

We understand that all transitions can take a little time, however, we assure you as always our main focus as a team is our members, volunteers and community partners. We thank you for your support and patience as we move forward with these important changes.

Many thanks,

In these extraordinary times, we are committed to continuing to provide exceptional older adult programming, services and events to our members safely. We are an organization that’s always done things a little differently… although it might not be what was always done, we are thrilled to announce
our reopening plan for our gradual re-opening starting in the Fall of 2020. Our organization is implementing important new measures to safeguard our members, staff and volunteers in order to make participating at the BOAA enjoyable.

Like many businesses and organizations, we’ve had to work incredibly fast with extreme flexibility to respond to the impacts of COVID-19 and to reflect ongoing government mandates. In response, on Monday September 14 th we will be safely reopening the doors to the BOAA with LIMITED ACCESS
available for members and guests. Pre-registration for indoor and outdoor programs and events is required.
1. Stay home if you are sick
2. A signed admission checklist that includes a temperature check will be required
3. Masks are required at all times within the building
4. All participants must remain six feet apart when possible
5. Please wash your hands frequently
6. Maximum 50 persons inside the building (we will be starting with much less)
7. Please use hand sanitizer frequently
8. Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth
1. Updated Office Hours – Monday to Friday, 9 am to 4 pm
2. Our team will be following social distancing protocols and our floors will have distancing guidelines
3. Our team will still be smiling (as always) but they’ll be wearing masks
4. We are encouraging the use of tap & chip debit or credit cards at this time
5. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building

We will continue to monitor the situation, doing our best to make the right decisions for our members, our team and our community. What is important for all to remember is that this will only be possible if we are COVID FREE and able to meet all Federal, Provincial, Regional & Municipal guidelines. Updates should always be expected and all planning is tentative.

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