The mandate of the Brockville 50+ Activity Centre is to enhance the lives of Brockville and area residents 50 years old and over, by providing, in a friendly and welcoming environment, affordable programs and activities that will keep them mentally and physically active. We are not affiliated with Wall Street United Church. We rent use of the gym and other rooms at the church location for our activities and programs.

We are a volunteer-based, non-profit organization and are a registered charity.  We receive no government funding but rely on an annual donation from the Shepherd’s Centre (Brockville) Foundation and participant fees.

Further detailed information on our organization is available from the Who Are We? dropdown menu above.

Below in reverse chronological order, newest on top, are quick news updates to various happenings and information related to the our organization. We hope you find them useful.

The sidebar on the right also has other useful information and appropriate links.

WINTER WEATHER POLICY
11/13/2017

The proposal of the specially convened taskforce that examined current AC policy with regard to class cancellations due to inclement weather was adopted by the board of directors at their meeting of Nov 7, 2017.

The key recommendation was the adoption of a flexible approach, with a number of different options available.

No longer will cancellation of school buses mean cancellation of all classes across the board.

Other additional options are now available, with the particular option in force being the choice of the class leader. The leader will of course make their choice known to class members and members will be expected to adhere to this guideline.

Please note that no longer will notices be sent out from the AC office regarding weather related cancellations. Also, Wall Street United Church reserves the right to remain closed if conditions on the premises pose a threat to our members.

The policy in full may be accessed by clicking here. In addition, the right sidebar contains the contact information regarding the status of school bus cancellations to be used as needed.

Thanks are due to the taskforce members: Bill Carlyle, John Bonser, Charron Szabo and Tony Dunbar for their work.
