Senior Friendship Club News and Events

It seems that March came in like a lamb?  Who knew, there is still lots of snow out there, but temperatures seem to be on an upward swing.

News Flash! The Silver Threads of Petawawa have asked us to join them on a shopping excursion to the Northgate Shopping Centre in North Bay on Thursday, March 14. The bus is FREE! They will pick us up at the valu mart parking lot at approximately 09:15-9:30; departing from North Bay between 3:00-3:30. It is a school bus so you may wish to bring a pillow. There are only 23 seats available at this time.

If you are interested, please let Cathy Chapman know ASAP! 613-584-1577.

Well, we had so much fun on our sleigh ride that we would like to do it again so, we are currently working on a second trip to the Whalen Family Farm for another outing at 'maple syrup time' (end of March or early April). We will let you know as soon as we have a date.

We have no leader for snowshoeing on Wednesday, March 6. Please watch the NRT to see if we are able to continue with this activity.

Tuesday, March 12 beginning at 1:30 in the CEC, join us for an entertaining talk on 'Art with Plants' by Marion Thompson of the Deep River and Area Horticultural Club. Refreshments will follow.

Wendy's Seniors Stretch Fitness classes continue in the library every Monday and Thursday afternoon beginning at 1:30. A small fee at the door will help with the cost of the room.

Walk-In-The-Halls (WITH IT) - You can exercise indoors safely by walking the halls in Mackenzie Community School on Tuesday and Thursday evenings 6:00-7:30 PM, with the exception of March 12 and March 14 when the school will be closed for March Break.

There is no word yet on the movie in the NRLTCC for Friday, March 22. If someone has a good suggestion, please let Cathy know as two of our Movie Coordinators are currently not able to arrange this.

Stay tuned for next week's article to find out what we have planned for the upcoming few months.
