It’s been some time since the official membership roll reached 400 at the Herman Prior Activity Centre (HPAC), but when Lynn Pashe signed up, the HPAC could once again claim that lofty membership plateau.
Like all groups — non-profit or otherwise — membership numbers are a benchmark, a goal and a rung on a ladder to reach for. While there are 400 HPAC carded members, thousands use the facility each month who may not know of the advantages a membership may give them! One advantage is to reduce the cost of programs they participate in.
“We were aiming to get our membership up to 400,” says Herman Prior Activity Centre Executive Director Chris Dumont. “So congratulations to Lynn Pashe by virtue of being the 400th member, she gets her membership free this time.”
The executive director explains while HPAC membership helps the Herman Prior Activity Centre with money to fund the programs and services we offer. It offers members lower fees for the programs and the day trips that we take.”
Presently planned trips are to the Daniel O’Donnell show, Rainbow Stage and Goldeyes Games (you must preregister for these). There are also shows at the HPAC, like the recent “This is Me” production and an upcoming dinner and a show that is a Don Williams Tribute on June 15.
A low cost membership will return value in program savings. Membership remains at a mere $25 a year.
As a member, you also have a voice in how the HPAC is run.
“Our Annual General Meeting is coming up on May 29 at 10 a.m.,” said Dumont. “All members are welcome to attend and if you are wanting to be a member of the board, and you are 55-years-old or better as per our by-laws, this is an opportunity for you.” Please phone or email Chris at 204-857-6951 or email firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested.
