Joanna Leurs, a trained Heart Moves leader organises this low intensity exercise group, suitable for people with health concerns. There are lots of options for all exercises and everyone is encouraged to work at their own pace. They have lots of fun. Come along and join this friendly group. All welcome. Cost $8 per session.
Our next birthday lunch will be held on Thursday 13 October at 12pm. This month we’ll be serving what some people think of as traditional comfort food. On the menu are roast lamb with vegetables followed by bread and butter pudding, just the thing for Canberra’s still somewhat chilly weather.
Remember, this lunch is FREE for members with a birthday in October and for others the cost is $10.
Please RSVP by 7 October on 6248 9509.
CELEBRATING OUR 50TH BIRTHDAY
This special occasion will be held in a private function room at the Tradies Club in Dickson on Saturday 3 December from 4.00–7.00pm. Formal invitations will be sent to all Canberra Seniors Centre members shortly. There will be no cost for this celebration for members and their partners.
CANBERRA SENIORS CENTRE FETE
Would you believe that some shops are already featuring Christmas in their displays? I thought that was way too early, but, on checking the forthcoming events at the club, I realised it was certainly not too early as our Christmas Fete will be held on Saturday, 5 November—only just over six weeks away. There will be all the usual stalls—books, craft, cakes, clothing, plants, toys and games, trash and treasure, and, of course, the delicious meals we serve in the dining room. Gifts for the raffle, too, would be appreciated. So, please decide how you can help and let the club know on 6248 9509. Your assistance will be most welcome.
Pat Gration, besides being our Centre Manager, is employed by the Australian Government as a Welfare Officer. Her official title is CEO, My Aged Care. She has the up-to-date information about aged care services that are available in our local area which can help you to live independently. She is able to advise you, provide confidential counselling and advocate on your behalf so please contact her if you have any questions about this federal government initiative.
