As part of our Mon Sheong’s community services, a membership club for the seniors called the Mon Sheong Circle of Friends –Seniors (孟嘗之友-長者會所), or Senior Circle (長者會所) in short, was introduced on August 10, 2011. The intention of the new membership club is to help our seniors in our local community as much as possible and to provide a Centre where they can find friendship and care. It is a Centre where they can occupy themselves by participating in activities organised specially for them such as morning Tai Chi exercise, health dance, Karaoke, ping-pong and even mah-jong.
Anyone, who is 50 or above, is welcome to join as a ‘registered friend’ of our Senior Circle. To become a “registered friend”, simply submit a completed registration form with an annual fee of $20. The annual fee is refundable if cancellation is made within the first 30 days from the day of registration. Friends of the Circle can enjoy our Centre’s facilities and participate in our many activities, programs and seminars. Many of these are free while some may require a minimal cost. Friends of the Circle will also receive a 10% fee discount for any paid recreational course (course descriptions) held at the Centre. For details, please visit our website www.monsheong.org/volunteers or contact our Centre at 416-297-5883.
For August and September this year, the Centre will be open to seniors free of charge. Please come and try out our new facilities with your parents, grandparents, and friends and learn more about our Senior Circle.
