Monthly PNC Meetings
Monthly meetings take place on the first Thursday evening of each month (except for July) at 7:00 pm in the Parksville Community Centre, 132 Jensen Street. During the meetings new members register (arrive at 6:30 pm to register and socialize with other newcomers) and activity co-ordinators are on hand to answer questions. Each meeting features a speaker from a local community organization and a 50/50 Draw takes place with proceeds going to local charities.
Note: Starting in December the monthly meetings will be held on the first Wednesday of the month and start at 2:00 p.m. We are doing a three month trial to see if the afternoon time slot works better for members. Same location – Parksville Community Centre.
Activity Groups support two important Club goals: To support members in continuing or pursuing new interests, activities and hobbies; and provide members with opportunities to develop friendships and social networks.
Activity Groups are organized around an activity or hobby which are consistent with the Club’s purpose, values and goals. Each Activity Group has a volunteer coordinator who oversees the Group’s activities and provides information to its members and prospective members. Most activities take place from Sept. to June.
Below is a list of current Activity Groups and you can click on each to learn more about the group and the co-ordinator’s name and contact info. Please contact the co-ordinator for additional info. Some groups, to help with planning (ie. reserving the right number for lunch or pub reservations), ask that you let the co-ordinator know if you are attending. Other groups are drop in.
Any suggestions for creating a new Activity Group can be addressed to the Vice President at firstname.lastname@example.org. If it’s your idea and it’s approved by the Board, you’ll need to agree to be the co-ordinator or find someone else to be the co-ordinator.
