A MESSAGE FROM THE GWSA

BOARD

The GWSA is powered by volunteers. Each year in April, Canada

pauses to recognize the contributions of our many volunteers. This

year’s theme for National Volunteer Week is “The value of one. The

power of many.” Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the

United Nations, has said, “If our hopes of building a better and safer

world are to become more than wishful thinking, we will need the

engagement of volunteers more than ever.”

As the GWSA plans for our reopening – hopefully in September –

we face an ongoing need for volunteers. Please consider volunteering

some of your time and talent to help the GWSA serve our members

and seniors in the community. The following groups meet virtually

and are seeking new volunteers.

Board of Directors

Each year, the GWSA membership elects individuals willing to make

a three-year commitment to serve on the Board of Directors. The

Board meets monthly to supervise the activities of the organization

and provide oversight to the various committees. Directors serve on

at least one committee. Although anyone interested in the best

interests of the organization is welcome on the Board, experience in

the fields of Human Resources, Law, Fundraising, or Technology

would be especially beneficial. Contact Becky MacDonald

(becky.macdonald@guelph.ca) for more information about serving as

a Director.

Governance Committee

The GWSA’s Governance Committee is looking for up to three

additional members. The Governance Committee assists the Board of

Directors with the development and review of bylaws, policies, and

procedures for the Association. It is chaired by Brian Smith.

This Committee holds morning meetings during a few months each

year. Experience in governance with a not-for-profit organization,

knowledge of legislative requirements, or a keen interest in document

research, development, and review would be helpful.

We also need someone with a laptop and computer skills willing to

take minutes at meetings and update documents as needed.

Please contact Becky MacDonald (becky.macdonald@guelph.ca) to

indicate your interest in serving on the Governance Committee.

Membership and Marketing Committee

The Membership and Marketing Committee currently has nine

members and could benefit from up to three more. This Committee is

responsible to the Board for all membership and marketing

initiatives, focusing on the maximum interest of members, and

advancement of the Board’s Strategic Plan. It is chaired by Ken

Fugler.

NOTE: Disclaimer—The Sentinel and the GWSA do not necessarily agree

with or support statements in the Sentinel made by advertisers, or submissions

by writers (no political or religious topics please).

The M&M Committee monitors membership satisfaction and develops plans to improve member

recruitment and retention. Marketing responsibilities include arranging for media coverage, creating

advertisements, developing promotional material, and arranging special events such as Open House and

New Members’ Welcome - either virtually or in-person as appropriate.

The Committee provides content and messaging advice to the webmaster for the website and social media

accounts and prepares monthly GWSA Email Updates. Marketing and recruitment experience would

definitely be assets but are not required.

Please contact Becky MacDonald (becky.macdonald@guelph.ca) to indicate your interest in serving on the

Membership and Marketing Committee.

Technology Committee

Mike Woof is organizing a new Technology Committee to advise the Board of Directors and provide

technical leadership in support of the Strategic Plan.

For production support, we need a group of technically savvy and interested members to prioritize a list of

needed projects for planning and implementation. Experience as an electrician, sound tech, lighting

technician, carpentry or design would be useful, and possibly computer-aided design skills. We will source

outside help where needed.

Our IT (Information Technology) also needs to be addressed by this Committee, with responsibility to:

Make hardware and software recommendations to address employee and volunteer needs, including the

Board, Finance Committee and members.

Oversee a small wireless network.

Provide guidance regarding the technical aspects of the website and membership mailing list.

Establish a modest A/V recording/live streaming studio.

Interest and background experience in IT, including network management and video production, would be

assets.

Please contact Becky MacDonald (becky.macdonald@guelph.ca) to indicate your interest in serving on the

Technology Committee.

GWSA Email Update for the Month of March 2021

All the Latest News

The City of Guelph has opened registration for their Spring programs. People are sometimes confused about

which programs are City programs and which are run by GWSA. As a reminder, GWSA has suspended

in-person activities until September or until Public Health advises us that it is safe for us to resume.

All GWSA memberships have been automatically extended at no cost to members.

A number of GWSA activity groups are meeting virtually. Contact the activity group leader listed on the

Activities page of the website or email Programme Committee Chair, Pat Gage, with questions.

The National Institute on Aging

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) released a guidance document titled COVID-19 Vaccines: What

Older Canadians Need to Know, authored by Dr. Samir Sinha, Ms. Sabina Vohra-Miller, and Dr. Jennie

Johnstone. The document outlines common questions arising among older Canadians regarding COVID-19

vaccines, along with evidence-informed answers to help keep Canadians up-to-date on the facts.

The guidance document explains in clear language how vaccines work, what mRNA is and how it’s used to

make vaccines, the critical steps taken to creating the COVID-19 vaccines, its effectiveness in older adults,

any side effects, and whether or not older adults who have already had COVID-19 need to be vaccinated.

The NIA encourages Canadians to read and share this document to help spread evidence-based answers to

key questions and concerns many older Canadians are facing. If you are an older adult - or caring for an

older adult - that does not want to get the vaccine, it may be helpful to read and share this guidance

document widely.

The document is available here.

With the continued danger brought about by the

COVID-19 virus, the possibilities of more virulent

strains, along with the uncertainty of the distribution

and effectiveness of the various vaccines, organizers

Trevor Barton and Brian Holstein have regretfully

announced that again this year, the Tea ‘n’ Tales

summer storytelling festival at the Guelph Enabling

Garden has been cancelled.

The organizers had hoped that the summer-long

Friday festival could resume this year, but the possible

health threat to the many seniors who regularly attend

is of prime importance.

Evergreen Kitchen

The City of Guelph is offering a frozen meal program at the Evergreen

Seniors Community Centre.

Here are the details:

Purchase 5 meals for $25.




Pre-order is mandatory.

Call or email Becky M. at 519-822-1260 x2691

or Becky.MacDonald@guelph.ca to place your order.

You may choose either meat or vegetarian packages. If you require

adjustments for allergies/dietary restrictions, please let Becky know

at the time of your order. The kitchen will make adjustments when

possible.

Meals can be paid for in person or over the phone with a credit card.

The Value of One, The Power of Many

April 18-24, 2021

The National Volunteer Week theme for 2021, The Value of One, The Power of Many, reflects

on the awe-inspiring acts of kindness by millions of individuals AND the magic that happens when

we work together towards a common purpose. This past year, we have seen people supporting

family, friends, neighbours, and strangers, people standing up to systemic racism, and people

sharing insights on how to create a more just and equitable society. We recognize the value of the

caring and compassion that each one has shown another, and we recognize the power of people,

organizations, and sectors working together.

#VolunteersBringChange in many ways so what does “The Value of One, The Power of Many”

mean to you?

National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate, recognize and thank volunteers, and to create

awareness for the important work millions do across Canada!

The Kitchen Bees program is an Outreach Project of

The Church of the Apostles in Guelph, Ontario.

We bring in volunteers every Tuesday and Thursday

from 10 am - 2 pm to come and make meals for the

community in need. As a program, we provide a

recipe and all of the ingredients required - our

volunteers are only required to make/bake/cook them.

We work closely with community support groups

including The Bench, Royal City Mission, The

GNSC, Hope House, and many more. This is a noncommittal

volunteer position - you will only need to volunteer once (however you

can come back as well!)

You are allowed to come by yourself, or with anyone within your social circle. You

will be the only group there, to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Please contact office@apostlesguelph.org

A call out to isolated seniors. Do you have a pair of

pants you cannot wear until they are hemmed?

A favourite shirt missing a button? A seam splitting

on an otherwise perfectly good top?

Sew On The Go wants to bring this free service to you.

We will pick up your garment, repair and return it to your door.

As a program of the Guelph Tool Library, funding has been made available for

delivery costs.
