SWC Name Change Update

From Cheryl Nix, SWC President:

As most Shepherd’s Welcome Centre (SWC) participants know by now, a sub-committee was set up from the SWC Board to consider retaining/changing the SWC name based on comments from participants who did not feel that the present name accurately reflects what the SWC is about nor properly indicate its target clientele.

On October 5, 2016, the sub-committee wrapped up its work of painstakingly gathering the thoughts of SWC members and leaders and of the Shepherd’s Centre Foundation and submitted its recommendations to the Board as a whole to review.

On December 7, 2016, in keeping with the Board sub-committee’s SWC Name Review Recommendation, the SWC Board voted in favour of making a change to the current name.

Many suggestions for a new name were submitted by participants throughout the past year. The sub-committee put forward three options for the Board to consider. The Board will continue its work on this subject in the new year and will keep you posted.

Pickle Ball and Post Pads

Photo shows one of the two Pickleball courts in the WSUC gym. Also the padding we recently purchased to cushion any collisions with the metal posts supporting the mezzanine.

Thank you to participant Frank Condron for helping us to source what we needed. The pads certainly add a touch of bright colour to the gym as well as protecting our enthusiastic players of this new game.
