Notes from the Prince Rupert Seniors Centre for Jan. 18 – 24

Knitting group is meeting Tuesday mornings at the centre. Bring any craft you desire.

Whist Monday: 1st-John & Mary, 2nd-Heather & Sharon, 3rd-Paul & Merle/Chris & Ed.

Thursday: 1st-Sharon & Heather, 2nd-Chris & Ron C., 3rd-Sharron & John.

Knitting group is meeting Tuesday mornings at the centre. Bring any craft you desire.  The group meets just after 10 a.m.  We are not open to the public until 11 a.m. so it is a quiet time to get all your talking in! There is no drop-in fee for this, but we do ask that you purchase a membership for the centre.  Memberships are $10 for a calendar year.

People tend to be forgetful around here so I am going to remind everyone once again that chair exercises are back Mondays at 3:15 p.m., yoga is on Tuesdays at 3:00 p.m. and singing group on Wednesdays at 3:00 p.m.  These are all drop-in, by donation.

Please be careful out there.  We try our best to clear the ice and snow but our parking lot is huge and the road expansive. If you can get dropped off at the door by taxi instead of taking the bus and walking on these iciest of days, please do so.  Thank you! We have one of the best taxi-serviced cities in B.C., if not the best!
