RSVP moving to a new address, sponsoring exercise program

I can now say that RSVP is moving to a new home at 1472 McGill Highway. This office was proposed first on April 13. Government moves slow, but gets there sooner or later with a few wrong turns here and there.

We will have an open house when fully moved in. I will print the time and date as soon as possible.

For those of you who do not recognize the address, it is the airport. I will have room for more than two people in the office at one time.

We will need some more items. Call RSVP if you have any thing you would like to donate. (A coffee pot would be nice).

Keep fit. RSVP sponsors a low impact exercise program on Tuesday and Thursday at the Senior Center before lunch.
