Senior Friendship Club News and Events

Tuesday, January 22, beginning at 1:30, in the CEC, is our winter General meeting which takes place every January. It is more like a mid-term report for all members to receive an update on the workings of the club and what the Executive and Activities Committee are doing for us all. If you would please think about joining either of these teams we have a couple of Directors who must leave their positions in June based on the bylaws. Talk with them to see what is involved. It is a wonderful team to 'work' with and we use the term 'work', lightly.

After the meeting we will enjoy some 'Step Dancing' with Rodina Turner, so put on some dancing shoes, or not, and come out and enjoy the afternoon. Refreshments will be available.

Speaking of shoes....we are halfway through January and the snowshoers (with a dog) have been out a couple of times already. If you would like to join the group, they start now from Wayne Workman's home at 10 Newton at 1:30 every Wednesday afternoon (the hike is approximately 3 km and takes about 1 hour).

Wayne also hosts a pool/billiards game in his home every Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 (except on meeting day) Space is very limited so please call Wayne beforehand at 613-584-2385 if you would like to challenge him to a game.

We may have enough members for a sleigh ride, so stay tuned for more information as we work out the details. There was not so much interest in the bowling, so far. But it only takes 8 to 12 people to enjoy a game. Contact Cathy Chapman at the info below if you are interested in different activities.

Wendy's Senior Stretch class continues in the Library every Monday and Thursday afternoons beginning at 1:30. This class is a drop-in for members, men and women. If you need to use a chair, the exercises are easily adapted. There is no registration but a small fee paid ($8 pp) at the door to help with costs.

The movie this month on Friday, January 25 in the NRLTCC is 'The Music of Silence'. Born with a serious eye condition that eventually leads to his blindness, Andrea Bocelli nevertheless rises above the challenges, driven by great ambitions towards his passion. The silent pursuit of his daily mission continues.
