New Horizons sponsors several different types of programs and events. Many involve 10-week sessions in the fall and spring; some are in place for longer or shorter terms.

For programs involving paid instructors and presented in the New Horizons Centre, New Horizons pays the instructor fees for participating members. Non-members pay the instructor directly.

In cases of off-island programs (swimming, bowling, golf and theatre), New Horizons contributes mileage and vehicle ferry costs (provided 3 or more members per vehicle). Members pay their passenger ferry costs and event admission. For off-island trips a travel expense claim form, with appropriate receipts attached, is required for reimbursement (click here for travel expense claim form). Completed forms can be placed in the New Horizons box in the Freepost at the Co-op or submitted to the Treasurer, Verna Kimmerly.

The New Horizons Centre is the heart of New Horizons on Hornby Island and the Board takes pride in providing a warm, clean and safe facility for the many programs presented in the building. The Program Fee ($1 per participant per event/class) is in place to help with the maintenance and utility expenses.

There are frequent programs and events at the Centre that are not sponsored by New Horizons and are included in the programs calendar. In those cases New Horizons usually rents the facility to the presenter and any fees are arranged directly between presenter and participant.

Literary Lunches starts October 17th Lunch is followed by a half hour entertaining presentation. Volunteers are needed to help serve lunch or to donate a tasty soup or delightful dessert!

The Golden Lunch starts on October 18th  and is every other week. Lunch is $8.00. A delicious entree will be served followed by dessert, which is provided by volunteers. This program provides our seniors a place to socialize with other seniors and lunch is served as if they are in a first-class restaurant.
