for Feb 10 to Feb 21

 

Hello Beachcomber's.

I hope no one has to be anywhere today.  It won't be safe out there.

 

I won't be writing a newsletter next week but I will be back again for the last week of Feb.  That is why this one will include 2 weeks of activities.

 

FYI, we have a Facebook page now thanks to Pat S.  You can log in and add to it.  It will be monitored so please keep it clean, LOL.

 

What's New:

Tom has taken over Euchre night, held on alternate Monday evenings.  This is open to the public so people "come from away".  Sorry, I couldn't help myself.  That play was soooo awesome!  There are goodies and prizes and yes, it is competitive. But, it is also fun.  Come and check it out!

 

Nancy Beam and her helpers are starting up a beginners Euchre starting March 4th   

It will go every Wed. afternoon at 1pm.  This is a fun afternoon for new or rusty players that want to learn the game or hone their game.  There will be no food or prizes, but there will be coffee.😊  We do ask for a $1 fee for the club.  It will be held either in the meeting room or in the front room depending on the number of players.

 

Rhoda, who is an accomplished artist, (and the clubs bookkeeper) is offering art classes for beginners starting March 7th at 10am. This is a weekly structured class where you will learn all the steps of painting on canvas.  You must bring your own paints, brushes and canvas.  A $3 fee per session is required.  Rhoda is in the office every Wed. after 10am if you have any questions. 

 

The Special Events Committee is putting on a "Wealthy Irishman's Sunday Dinner" March 15. That is a Sunday evening at 5:30.  The Poster with menu and cost will be up very soon. I hear it is going to involve Roast Beef, 3 or 4 types of veggies, luscious gravy and dessert of course.  

 

We have someone who is interested in teaching Yoga at the Club.  She is only available two weeks on, 2 weeks off because she has another commitment.  If you are interested please let the club know.  If there is enough interest she will put something in place.

 

February 25 is the 2nd to last noon-hour potluck. It will be held at 1pm as before, but this time we are celebrating the 47th anniversary of the club.  A cake will be provided.

We will also have a speaker from the police dept.  The subject is crime stoppers.

There are a few speakers lined up for the next few months and Bill has assured me that a microphone will be available for those of us who have difficulty hearing.

People have found the food 'heavy' for that time of day, so we suggest you bring finger food, salad or sandwiches.  Soup will be provided as usual. There will be enough cake for everyone.  If you don't want to participate in the potluck, why not drop in after 1:30 for the speaker?

 

The Fort Erie Senior Advisory are sponsoring a play at the Garrison Little Theatre on Feb 16th.  Because of the increase in price for the luncheon, they have opted to support the play only.  There are 10 tickets still available and can be purchased through Bill Jones 905-894-8970.

 

What a great bunch that come out consistently for Scrabble Wednesday evenings. There are various levels of players AND you can use the scrabble dictionary (there is one available). Just sayin...
