The Halton Chapter is made up of CARP members who volunteer their time, talent and sense of community spirit to advance CARP’s mission and to keep Halton Region members informed of CARP’s Advocacy, Benefits and Community activities. Through our volunteer Board and Committees, our Chapter provides opportunities for members to get involved in the social issues that affect Canadians as we age and to strengthen CARP’s voice and influence locally, regionally and nationally. You will find a list of our current volunteer Board members below.
Our active group of CARP volunteers in Halton organizes monthly meetings which feature speakers who discuss topics of interest to our demographic. We also invite sponsors, who provide services to our demographic, to join us. They will have tables displaying their goods and/or services and where you will be able to obtain more information. We announce the agenda for these meeting on this webpage and by newsletter which we email to all of our members.
We invite you and your friends to join us on the fourth Tuesday of the month (except July, August and December) at the Burlington Senior’s Centre, located at 2285 New Street. This is just west of Guelph Line and is adjacent to the Library and Arena. These meetings are FREE, and give CARP members an opportunity to meet and socialize with fellow CARP members. Light refreshments are provided. Doors open at 6.30pm and the meetings run from 7.00pm to 9.00pm.
You will meet new people, have fun, and do good things for your community. We have a number of goals for this year and would be delighted to have you join us.
And please note, if you are currently a CARP member, or want to become one, there are no additional fees or dues for joining our Chapter. In fact, you can support our Chapter by simply including our Chapter number (Chapter #3) on the membership form when you become a member, or re-new your membership. By including our Chapter number whether you register online, over the telephone, or on the printed membership form, a portion of your CARP membership fee will be allocated to our Chapter so we can continue to be a valued resource in our Community
If you would like more information, please feel free to contact me by e-mail at [email protected] or by phone 905-319-7345
I hope you will join us and help make our community a better place to live for people of all ages.
