MPN Committee Notes
Please note change to the member participation timeline. Because many of our events are subsidized through the Seniors Horizon Grant, we need to insure that our events/activities are targeted to our active members.

Hello MPN’ers,

As you know, the membership list and the Facebook page is dedicated to active members, which is defined as members who have attended/participated in 2-3 MPN events during the a 6 consecutive month period.

As you can appreciate, the committee needs to periodically review this list every in order to keep everything current. The federal government also requires us to accuratly report on our membership.

In addition, the Facebook page is a closed page dedicated to and for active members to enable communication between group members. 

Access to the Newsletter remains open to active and non-active members, unless we receive individual unsubscribe requests.


The MPN Organizing Committee

Letter  From 
Your Organizing 

March 1, 2023

Hello MPN friends,

2022-23 has been a great year so far for MPN fun, friends and activities. We’ve had lots of dances, pool parties, BBQ’s, socials, seminars and two awesome trips! AND, we still have lots to look forward to  in 2023-24.

Following 2 years of COVID inactivity, the Committee wanted to offer new and exciting events and activities with the aim of rebuilding and growing the membership. We applied and received a federal grant through the Horizons for Seniors Program that allowed us to do that.  What it doesn’t provide is the manpower to organize and carry out all these activities.  In the past, MPN consisted of Friday night socials, Saturday breakfasts and the occasional dance.

We are very fortunate to have dedicated and engaged individuals on the Organizing Committee, however, to maintain this level of fun and events, we need many hands. This is our group and it’s only going to be as good as the effort we each contribute.

The MPN has always been a network of seniors for seniors. Members are encouraged to identify and lead activities themselves ie: organize a group supper; suggest and organize an outing or a hike;

Every planned activity or event requires support. This can take the form of anything from helping to decorate the venue, making phone calls, taking tickets at the door, designing and printing tickets to buying food (reimbursed by the Committee), selling tickets and keeping a list of attendees, hosting some of our socials (opening the room and making coffee).  Event organizers usually have a list of everything that needs to be done.

If you want the MPN to continue on a similar basis than it has this past year, then we all need to pull together to make it happen. Please contact Bev Steeves if you are willing to help or take the lead on an event or activity.

Bev or pm her on FacebookYour MPN Organizing Committee


MPN has again received a Federal Government Grant through the Seniors Horizon Grant Program that will allow us to do some amazing stuff  in 2023-24 - our future includes dances; some artistic fun stuff; some educational sessions specifically for seniors; pool parties and BBQ's and lots of social activities.

To be added to our mailing list for our newsletter, please email your name and contact info to  This will give you access to our weekly newsletter and information about planned activities and events.

The group also has an MPN Facebook page (Mature People's Network) that is open to active members only.  Once you have attended an event or two and decide to become an active member, you can request access to the Facebook page so that you may communicate with other members in a private forum.

Note: This is a closed group for MPN members only.
