The WindsorEssex '100 Mile' Peninsula Club
WEARCI's goal in establishing the WindsorEssex '100 Mile' Peninsula Club
is to provide a foundation for new residents age 50-plus who have recently relocated
to the WindsorEssex region, with an opportunity to utilize their broad range of skills
and experience for the purpose of developing sustainable programs that encourage
and inspire volunteerism, active lifestyles, social inclusion, knowledge sharing and the
ongoing attraction of new, active adult residents.
The mission of the '100 Mile' Peninsula Club is to build a volunteer organization
throughout the nine communities of WindsorEssex with a designated representative
from each municipality (nine volunteer representatives). The representative will serve
as the primary liaison between their respective municipality and WEARCI, the age
50-plus relocated families residing in that municipality and stakeholders. One volunteer
representing the '100 Mile' Peninsula Club will be invited to sit on the WEARCI board.
'100 Mile' Peninsula Club members will serve as volunteer ambassadors for their specific
communities and the WindsorEssex region in general, welcoming prospective age 50-plus
residents, offering experiential information and personal tours if desired. Volunteers will
conduct follow-up to discovery visits, provide representation on behalf of WEARCI at
mature lifestyle events and offer 'in-person' testimonials with a goal to increase relocation
to the WindsorEssex region.
The '100 Mile' Peninsula Club members will foster an environment of friendship, encourage
social engagement, active lifestyle participation, community volunteering and promotion
of the WindsorEssex region and its nine communities as an ideal retirement destination for
the age 50-plus demographic: boomers, the semi-retired and active retirees.
The '100 Mile' Peninsula Club will hold quarterly seminars, media events and an annual
signature event / community fundraiser to re-enforce the social and economic significance
of the mature lifestyle demographic in the region and bring together the area's growing
population of new retiree families to promote health and wellness, active living, volunteerism,
and a sense of community.
