There is always lots to do in Centre Wellington if you're a senior. Here are some services offered at the Victoria Park Seniors' Centre:
- Card Service
Did you know that the Victoria Park Seniors' Centre sends out cards to members? If you happen to know a member of the Centre who may be ill, recovering from an operation, requiring a sympathy card, etc., let us know by contacting the Centre.
- Crafts for Sale
Visit the Craft Shoppe at Victoria Park Seniors' Centre. Full of beautiful handmade items are made by our talented Craft and Quilting Group volunteers and are available for sale year 'round (gift certificates are available). Open Monday - Friday 9:00 am - 4:00 pm. All proceeds support the Victoria Park Seniors' Centre.
- Garden Fresh Box
A non-profit, fresh produce buying service created to help people access affordable fresh fruits and vegetables. Supporting local farmers, this service is operated by the Guelph Community Health Centre. The box content changes from month to month because fruits and vegetables are chosen in season when they are at peak nutritional value and they include a recipe sheet. To order, contact the Victoria Park Seniors' Centre. You must pay for your order by the 1st Friday of the month and you pick up your order on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at Victoria Park Seniors' Centre between 12:00 - 4:00 pm. Bring your own grocery bags, the program runs year round. Cost is $20 for a large box or $15 small box (cash only).
- Library, Newspapers, Puzzles and Coffee
Drop by to read a book or do a jigsaw puzzle or borrow one to take home. Come out for coffee and browse through the newspapers. We accept donations of current magazines for our coffee table.
