February, 2021 —
It is such an understatement for me to say, “What a difference a year makes?” However, I am pleased to join such an experienced and energetic District 27 RTOERO team. Although we are apart, we continue to “work together” during these extraordinary times.

President Linda Yan

Admittedly, assuming this role at this time, there is more that I do not know than I know. I believe that all organizations may say the same as the pandemic continues to present us with more questions than answers. What I DO KNOW is that I join a District 27 team rich in corporate and local expertise who have demonstrated a tremendous commitment in reaching our members. In addition, I know from all our lived experiences in the evolving and varied restrictions complying with COVID protocols, the desire to mitigate social isolation is a clear need and remains a top priority.

In our ongoing commitment to connect with our members, we hope that you will:
  • JOIN US for the virtual information sessions such as those about Benefits and Retirement planning.
  • LET US HEAR your voices about the pressing issues at the municipal, provincial and federal levels that impact our members.
  • SHARE WITH US ideas about ways we can expand our social offering and celebrations.
  • SHARE A STORY or an interesting development that can be communicated in our newsletter.
As a start, the executive decided at our last meeting to raise our voices on behalf of seniors living in assisted care. In the coming weeks, RTOERO District 27 will be reaching out to speak with local politicians on behalf of our members. We will be publishing research on our website and in a special edition of this newsletter. We are looking for your help. Your involvement ranges from educating yourself about the issues by reading some of the material we send, attending the “Vibrant Voices “webinars, to reaching out to your MP or MPP. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.

While we patiently await for the face-to-face interactions which we hope may be planned for the latter part of 2021, we press on with communicating and engaging with you in traditional methods and using current digital platforms. The content of this newsletter and the more frequent updates to our web page provides information for our members regarding RTOERO activities and initiatives. We continue to be open to new ideas and invite you to contact us.

Stay well and safe

Linda Yan,

2020 District 27 Goals
(2020 President Louise Perrault)

During my term, I will endeavour to focus on the following main goals:
  • The first goal will be to strengthen the teamwork begun by our previous Executive and Board colleagues in effectively serving our members.
  • The second goal will be to keep our members well informed of changes to health and travel benefits and to clarify any issues associated with costs, claims, conditions and protocols.
  • The third goal will be to provide social and enter- tainment opportunities to keep our minds and bodies engaged.
