Program Plan for the New Centre – Progress Report 2

Submitted by Bob Dye and Sharon Alliet

Business Plan

                                                                                                                         for a

Member Focused Adult Activity Centre,

Facilitating a Healthy, Active and Enjoyable Lifestyle

The first step in the development of The New Centre Business Plan was to create a Mission Statement and a Vision Statement.

Mission Statement

The “Ridgetown and Area Adult Activity Centre is a not-for-profit Corporation, facilitating affordable accessible activities, programs and services, to enhance the quality of life of its members and community.”

A Mission Statement is a declaration of:

  • The reason the organization exists
  • The purpose for the organization

Vision Statement

The Ridgetown and Area Adult Activity Centre is a member focused Centre, facilitating a healthy, active and enjoyable lifestyle.

A Vision Statement is a declaration of:

  • The future of the Centre as the Members of the Centre would like it to be.
  • How the Members of the Centre would like the Centre to be seen.

For The Centre to achieve its Mission and make its Vision a reality will require The Centre to have a dynamic Plan of Activities, Programs and Services. To ensure this Plan was coherent the activities, programs and services were arranged within 10 categories.

                               -Arts and Crafts Activities                                    -Health & Wellness Services

                               -Social Programs                                                   -Board Games (Activities)

                               -Special Interest Programs                                    -Card Games (Activities)

                               -Sporting Activities                                               -Education Programs

                               -Fitness Activities                                                 -Technology Programs

Within these 10 categories will be a total of 90 Activities, Programs and Services.

The Development Team’s vision for this New Centre would be a “Home/Base” facility located on Centre owned property at 40 Erie Street South, Ridgetown. All management and administrative functions would be conducted at this facility under the direction of the Coordinator of The Centre. Centre developed Activities, Programs and Services (Programs) with normal building space needs would be delivered at the “Home/Base facility”. Programs with unique space needs would be accessed by members of The Centre at offsite locations with community partners as arranged by the Centre Coordinator. For example, some fitness activities may be accessed at Southkent Barbell Gym located on Main Street East.

The Program Plan for The New Centre will therefore be a key element in the design of The New Centre as The New Centre will be designed for the delivery of “onsite” programs and administrative functions.

On February 19th The Centre will be hosting an evening information and fundraising event at 5:30 pm at The Ridgetown Legion to provide members and Ridgetown and Area Businesses with an opportunity to make a donation.
