New Membership Year
We have changed our membership year to January 1st - December 31st.
This year's membership fee of $20 started on March 1st but ends December 31st, so this year's fee covers only 10 months. Please let your members know that each member is entitled to have TWO free Rollo sessions before the end of the year to make up the difference.
Our payment plan for new members has changed. If a NEW member joins in January, February or March, the fee is $20; April, May or June, the fee is $15; July, August or September, the fee is $10; and, October, November or December, the fee is $5.
Ramp Provided through Community Grant

Regional District of Nanaimo directors have voted to provide $5,355 to the Gabriola Senior Citizens Association for renovation work at the Rollo Centre on Gabriola Island.
The association operates the centre and Ralph Hagen, association treasurer, had requested the money as a 40-square-metre addition is nearing completion, but the anticipated cost of $27,000 was more than the money the association had available.
The $5,355 will go toward a fire escape door and a ramp.
The board approved a motion at its Oct. 27 meeting, directing staff to complete an agreement with the association for the money, which will come from Gabriola Island's allotment of Community Works Fund money.
“They've already spent $27,000 and so they had a bit of a shortfall and that's why they came to the RDN,” said Howard Houle, regional district director for Gabriola Island.
“They've done some renovations and when they expanded, of course what it meant was that one of the emergency exits didn't have a ramp and so they had a bit of a shortfall and that's why we stepped up,” he said.
The Board of Directors of the Gabriola Senior Citizens Association held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, June 16th, 2021 to celebrate the opening of the newly renovated deck at the Rollo Seniors Centre. The cost of materials for the deck renovation was supported by a Community Grant from the Regional District of Nanaimo. Renovations were carried out by members of the GSCA.
