Before March, before COVID-19, before the closure of City recreational facilities, and before the closure of The Firehall, OSCA’s Executive Committee met quarterly unless special circumstances demanded otherwise. Once federal, provincial, and municipal governments (in collaboration with public health authorities) ordered an immediate lockdown, OSCA cancelled all programming, including the Firehall Fitness Centre, the Pottery Studio, as well as on-site Board and Committee meetings. Thus began our virtual community lives by Zoom. The Executive now meets weekly - more often when required - and updates the Board of Directors on actions taken and makes recommendations/proposals to the Board.Wednesday, 29 July 2020 12:04

As we age our risk of falling increases as does the likelihood that a fall will cause an injury. Before the time of COVID-19, falls were the leading cause of injury, emergency room visits, and hospitalizations for seniors in North America, and half of all falls happened in a person's own home. How can we help seniors prevent a fall, maintain their independence, and avoid a hospital visit? Amanda Sterczyk, an independent author and personal trainer, will teach participants about the balance "sweet spot", the complexity of our balance system, and how easy it is to incorporate exercise into their daily lives to improve their balance and prevent falls.
