As we move into spring there are changes at the Seniors Centre. Alan Edie the owner of the mall has generously remoded a space where the Ardeens’ store was into a large movement area. There is lots of room for yoga, line dancing and the City’s “Fit for Health” seated exercise program. Check out our calendar to see if there are any changes to the schedule. We also now have a second meeting room which will make some programs quieter.
Well another year is here. We have been very successful this year. There is another AGM and election coming up in February. I urge anyone with particular skills to consider running for the Board of Directors. Our next newsletter should have the details of how to put your name forward.
Have you checked out our library lately??? What a collection of books! We have over 500 books of various types and they are all alphabetical by author. We would like to thank Bobbie Driscoll for her hard work keeping our library tidy. There are many rewarding volunteer jobs that YOU can do. Our centre runs entirely on volunteers except for our cook Dos. YOU can help us. Please leave your name at the desk and see if there is anything you can help out with.
In September we removed all the yoga matts and put them aside and when people came back to yoga we put the remainder in a box until those people returned. There was no other way to separate the ones that weren’t being used. We left those in a box until this month.
If you don’t come to yoga any more and would like your matt back, please contact Bev (though the office) and let her know what colour your matt is and she will leave it at the main seniors centre for you. If you do NOT, we will be selling them off to other yoga students in the new year.
Have you thought about what you would do if you weren’t able to express your wishes.
