Island Notes
We are working towards a bottled water free environment on Juniper Island. Please bring your reusable bottle and refill as needed in the store.

You will have noticed some changes to our waste collection system on the island. We are working hard to reduce our waste and ensure the right waste goes in the right container. Take a second before tossing something into the contains and make sure to place it where it belongs. Bags with mixed recycling, waste, and food scrapes are not accepted at the dump.

One-time Volunteers Needed
We are in need of Boat Valets for Ladies Luncheon (July 10th), set-up and take down for the Regatta (August 6th) and Art Show (August 10th), and Judges for the Kids Masquerade Ball (July 31st). We’re happy to write letters for those high schoolers needing to earn and track volunteer hours.

For those who attended the AGM, you would have heard our President’s plea for folks able to help with the Square Dance. This longtime weekly event, recently featured in Cottage Life Magazine, needs a few cottagers to keep it going strong. If you can do one-time or a few times this summer we’d be grateful.

If you’re interested in any of these one-time roles, please contact Director, Social - Brett Somerville at somervillebp@aol.com.

Donations: If you’re inclined to support the ASCL or the Regatta through a donation, you can make one through our new site. All donations help to keep Juniper Island going and to make the Regatta successful.

Stay Informed
We try to limit our e-mails to you to once a week unless there is something extra special or significant to be shared. If you want to stay in the loop on ‘in-between’ announcements, follow us on Facebook or Instragram: @ASCLjuniper.

Hello ASLC Community! Details on the New Registration System

download.png

With the launch of our new membership and registration system this past month, we know there are lots of questions. Below we’ve tried to provide some clear directions for you. Need help navigating? We’ll be at Juniper each morning this week, or available via e-mail at programs@aslcmembers.ca.

Thanks to everyone who joined us at the AGM, members BBQ and inaugural Sustainable Cottaging Day! Juniper was jumping with energy on Saturday as the season kicked off with sunshine and the sounds of friends connecting after a long winter. Summer really is here.

Details on the New Registration System

On our website is a handy info sheet about getting started with your ASLC MINDBODY account. It doesn’t cover everything, so we’ve added a few additional notes below that we hope you find helpful.

Registering someone other than yourself?
If you are registering your child for a program, during the registration process you’ll have an opportunity to Add New Client. If you select this option, you’ll then be able to select which child to assign the registration to. This assumes you have already added your kids in to your profile.

Still haven’t purchased a membership?
Our programs are for members-only. If you have not purchased a membership for yourself or your family, please do so prior to classes starting. If you’re wondering which membership if right for you, take a look at our membership policy.

To purchase a membership, create your profile in the ASLC MINDBODY site, then navigate to the Online Store, select Services,choose Membership in the drop-down menu, and then choose the correct Membership for your situation.

As folks get settled into the system, we will be placing restrictions on registrations based on membership. This means if you haven’t purchased a membership, you may lose access to programs.

Guests and Guest Memberships
The only programs a guest can attend are Yoga and Fitness classes using a daily pass option. As the sponsoring member, you will need to be attending class with your guest. Please note a change in our process: the guest will need to have a profile created in our registration system. The guest or the sponsoring member can pay for the class. Please arrive to class with enough time to sign-in. Members can sponsor the same guest up to 5 times a season.

If you have friends or family up for a week or two who would like to access programs and services on Juniper, then a guest membership may be the right option. To sponsor a guest membership, e-mail Hilary at membership@aslcmembers.ca so we can set up their account.

Yoga and Fitness Passes
There are several great options for those who attend our EXPANDED Yoga and Fitness classes. The unlimited passes allow for access to Fitness Swim in addition to classes in the Pavilion! You can purchase your pass online, and then check in at class to have your pass verified before hitting the mat.

To purchase a pass: navigate to the ASLC MINDBODY site, select Online Store > services > Yoga and Fitness passes.
