Notes from the Prince Rupert Seniors Centre for Feb. 10-16

Knitting group small, but growing at the Seniors Centre

Cribbage Monday: 1st — Mary and John, 2nd — Marg and Pat, 3rd — Jane and Marie.  Thursday: 1st — Sharron and Paul, 2nd — John and Kris/Marjorie and Lynne.

Our first day of chair exercises is Monday, Feb. 22.   Cards usually ends around 3 p.m., we do the table and chair shuffle then start by 3:15 p.m.

The instructors are students studying physiotherapy etc., and have tons of enthusiasm, come prepared to work hard but have fun!  There is no fee attached but we do appreciate a donation of a dollar or two as long as it is not a hardship.

Everyone participating must purchase a 2016 membership ($10 for the year).

Our knitting group is small but getting larger as we now have interested members coming for crochet.  If you need help with a knitting or crochet project come to the Centre Tuesday mornings around10 a.m.

Thank you TD Canada Trust Prince Rupert employees for your very generous donation.

We are blessed by our community!
