Fitbit Winner

Roberta won the Wisteria Place Fitbit Contest. She lives on Vancouver Island. Her husband took a photo of her and her Fitbit at Ogden Point on a very cold, crisp day by the ocean. She said “Good for my 10,000 steps. I'm enjoying my Fitbit; lots to learn.” Safe to say she loved the prize and the fitness and learning challenges from it!

Gurpreet's Tech Corner

Greetings from Gurpreet Pannu
Community Relations Coordinator

I am your tech-savvy helper, and I have been inspired by watching people learn to join Zoom for the first time by phone, tablet, or laptop.

If you need help or have questions about joining our Coffee Chats on Zoom, you can contact me at 604-339-5670 or [email protected]

The links to our Coffee Chats and Webinars are on our website under Events, and we do send out reminders as well.

Thank you all for connecting with us at Wisteria Place, whether it was via Zoom or phone. I am embracing 2021 the vibrant way by walking every day, and stopping in the morning to get grounded, and being mindful during my pregnancy. I challenges others to find their own way to make this a great vibrant year for them too!
