Craft and Chatter (Get yourself hooked on a good yarn)
On Thursday mornings from 10 am to 12 noon, our Craft and Chatter group keep busy working their way towards the next fete. Some knit, some sew and some crochet some magnificent items but we’d never embroider the truth! All skill levels are welcome and we’re happy to share our techniques and help you pick up a new one. Marjorie, Daphne and the group look forward to meeting you.
Italian Scrabble 1st Tuesday
Join Fran for Jazzercise every Wednesday (Strengh) and Friday (Lite) for a fun cardio and muscles workout. Build balance and flexibility, tone your whole body and charge up your metabolism with modified dance/fitness movements and lower intensity for all fitness levels.
Ann, the teacher, welcomes everyone, from the complete beginner to the more advanced, to join in the Line Dancing.
Medical Tai Chi
Our members step lightly around the room as they enjoy the New Vogue and Old Time Dances.
Oil painting with Peter
We have a landscape painting class on Wednesday mornings starting at 10 am. It does not matter that you have never painted before or not painted for a while, you will go home with a completed picture. We paint with oil paint on canvas panels. Paints and brushes provided for a moderate cost.
Join this friendly class and try a simple modern or traditional design on a porcelain plate or mug. All the brushes, paints and mediums are supplied for the first four weeks and the club has a kiln in which we fire our pieces. You’ll be surprised what you can produce in just a couple of weeks.
The members of the Russian Class meet each Friday to practise their language skills.
Each Wednesday from 9.30 am to 3 pm the group meets in the Fraser Room to play cards. This is a friendly, social occasion to relax and enjoy congenial company. One group will be playing Canasta but everyone is welcome to play any other card game – maybe Euchre or Poker – or whatever you enjoy.
