The meeting spaces are ready. Physical distancing requirements are met, meals are all served, as well as coffee & water. As always, there are no room rentals charged to members of the Club. Follow this link to the new Breakfast & Lunch meeting menu.

THE LUNCH TRUCK

Many of you have seen the big red trailer around the city doing the job of a food truck. Thanks to all the members who have found us, especially in the parking lot at the Club on Wednesdays!  We will continue the food truck on Wednesdays at the WWC. We serve two hot sandwiches with a salad and drink for $10.00. Bring a crew for a tailgate or picnic lunch. Our Lunch Truck locations are advertised on Facebook and Instagram @urbanprairiecuisine.

We look forward to serving you.

Can you believe all that we have experienced over the last 3.5 months? I often have a take a moment to pause and remember that through all of this we have remained as healthy as we can and with family. Of all the negatives, the positives have been amazing!

As a parent, I spent more time with my little family in the last 3 months than I did in the 12 months prior! With the business of working, volunteering, hockey, dance and so on... life moves faster that we can handle it sometimes. What a valuable experience this has been to teach us to slow down.

The other change many of us experienced with having extra time was using that time to workout. I enjoyed seeing different people present at the Zoom classes and the pictures of temporary home gyms that were set up. But most rewarding was seeing and hearing our members say that they were grateful to return to the Club, a small piece of normalcy returned to our lives. Working out was certainly a savior for some at home and hopefully we can support you in continuing that feeling at the Club.

As we shift into July and the dog days of summer, remember that we are here, and supporting you through this season of transition. We have done so much to ensure that we remain open and keep our members feeling safe. Thank you for letting us be with you during this season of change. Stay healthy.

Babysitting will be closed on Wednesday, July 1st, Thursday, July 2nd and Friday, July 3rd. We will begin summer hours on Monday, July 6th. Be sure to go over your Covid-19 Member Manual prior to visiting. Book in for your care through the Front Desk for either of the available booking times: 900 - 11:00 am or 11:30 am - 1:30 pm.
