As you may be aware WECSSO had planned a golf tournament for August 21, 2020.
Unfortunately, this has been CANCELLED, due to COVID 19.
The intent was to provide a venue for socialization for the players of the various divisions with a day of golf, mingling, a banquet, etc. Given the current environment this is not possible.
WECSSO does plan on holding such a tournament next year! Plan to be part of the 2021 Golf Tourney.
Hello from Life After Fifty!
Life After Fifty’s biggest fundraiser of the year has returned! Could you help us to raise funds for programs and services by buying and promoting the lottery in our community?
What would you do with $10,000, $2,500 or a $1,000? You could also win a $500 Shoppers Drug Mart gift certificate or Just Jeff’s Gourmet Express Gift Certificates! Because our prizes are cash and gift certificates they make a great group purchase for family, friends or co-workers. Tickets are $20 each or 3/$50.
Please contact us for tickets by calling (519) 254-1108 or email your name and number to Martha Mackintosh <MMackintosh@lifeafterfifty.ca
When you buy tickets to the Life After Fifty Lottery your dollars go directly to fund programs and services for older adults in Windsor-Essex by providing meaningful social connections, activities and wellness to support independent living.
We sincerely appreciate your support. Please gamble responsibly

Jim and Heather Scott have formed a Registered Charity to hlep the people of Haiti battle back from the ravages of the tornado that nearly destroyed their island. They are requesting the help of approximately 550 volunteers to assist in packaging 100,000 military style meals that will be boxed and shipped to Haiti for distribution to the starving.
Volunteers are needed on Saturday, June 27th from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at 4505 Rhodes Drive in Windsor (Ground Effects main office). There will be on site parking and activities will be outside, weather permitting, or in the plant in the event of rain. Lunch will be provided. Pre-teens (11 or 12) can be utilized and High School students will be issued letters from Enable Haiti towards their required Community Service Hours for the day.
The Scott team have made several trips to this devastated area to deliver food and many other essentials. The conditions and starvations that they have witnessed defies description.
Local media have been invited. Please sign up and bring family and friends. It will be a fun and rewarding day. Please contact John McNaughton at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 519-979-1790.
