“Health … Safety … Well-being … Activities …”
Hello to you, dear readers,
The seasons follow one another and one thing in common to relieve them is the hours of sunshine and the beautiful weather, which is concerned with all the ideal conditions for us to be physically active and keep fit.
Despite the continuing pandemic situation and public health restrictions to protect ourselves, let’s remember that we can always take care of ourselves by being active within our family bubble. Thus, we can indulge in outdoor activities such as walking, cycling, tennis, pickleball and any other individual sport; in addition, one can be entertained by reading, listening to music, watching good movies and catching up on TV. By doing so, we respect government health guidelines while saving the lives of our loved ones and members of our community. It’s not over yet and we mustn’t let go! Together, we are succeeding in reducing the spread of the coronavirus and breaking the 2nd wave! We can see that Estrie is currently setting itself apart, and that is thanks to all of our collective efforts. Let’s continue to make a difference!
Now let’s talk about the FADOQ – Estrie region:
HIS MISSION :
The FADOQ – Région Estrie brings together and represents people aged 50 and over in order to maintain and improve their quality of life. The FADOQ – Région Estrie defends and promotes their collective rights, values their contributions to society and supports them through programs, services and activities, particularly in recreation, culture, sports and the outdoors.
HIS VISION :
To be the leader in Estrie, to ensure active and quality aging.
HER VALUES :
Cooperation • Commitment • Fairness • Integrity • Pleasure • Respect • Solidarity in particular, regarding health, safety, well-being and belonging.
A few words to present the profile of the FADOQ – Estrie Region vs the provincial FADOQ Network:
|Over 37,233 members||Over 550,000 members|
|41 local clubs||705 local clubs|
|1 regional club||16 regional offices|
|3 associative members||18 associative members|
|Over 700 volunteers||Over 20,000 volunteers|
|6 employees||More than 143 employees|
|Over 270 discounts and privileges||Over 1,500 discounts and privileges|
Imagine the strength of such an organization and know that it is there to properly represent people aged 50 and over, at the various municipal and government levels, with regard to their collective rights: the enhancement of the pension plan and old age pension, the protection of private pension schemes at the level of the different work organizations by treating them as a priority claim, the enhancement of care at the level of health establishments and the improvement of home support services. Remember that in a pandemic situation, the FADOQ Network must be even more present on a daily basis to ensure the respect and protection of seniors.
I hope, dear readers, that I make you want to join our organization, if you haven’t already. If you are 50 years old and over and want to become a member, you can contact the FADOQ club in your area, or join our website www.fadoq.ca. It is also possible to contact Lise Couture, at the FADOQ – Estrie region office, at 819 566-7748, ext. 1. And if you wish, you can offer the FADOQ card as a gift to someone you know who is 50 years old and more.
We look forward to being part of this important Network and together, we will make the difference with our great impact force.
Here is some last-minute news: always respecting public health standards and given that we are in the red zone, we had to notify our local FADOQ clubs as well as our regional office again to suspend all face-to-face activities, and that until further notice. Please note that the regional office is closed to customers, but you can always reach us by phone and a follow-up will be given as soon as possible.
