Our wonderful summer is coming to an end with cooler nights and fall is fast approaching (September 22nd). The Men’s BBQ was another “sold out” success. “Thank you” Men’s Group — looking forward to next year.
The Corn Roast was a great way to introduce the fall activities. Even though the corn roast was not held at the Johnston Farm, Rikki Bowman and all her many volunteers did a terrific job of serving over one hundred people at the Centre. Thank You!!
Most of our CB groups have once again started up — check out the bulletin board, or the Blue Heron News for the weekly activity schedule. We have several new CB55+ courses and 1-day workshops happening. Come and learn something new!! — Ballroom Dancing, Watercolour Painting, Christmas Greenery, Beginner’s Stained Glass, Ancestry.com, Beginner’s Mah Jong, Mushroom Identification, and Teacup Reading.
The Saanich Courses have started, but it’s not too late to check them out. To register, members must contact Saanich at 250-475-7600, or online at www.saanich.ca. (Saanich is again offering Chair Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Line Dancing and Zumba Gold at our Centre).
A “Meet & Greet” is to be held on Monday, September 29th at 1:30 pm, to welcome new members to our Association, and provide them with information regarding CB55+. Any current member who would like to take the opportunity to meet and welcome these new members, and to chat with Group Leaders and the Board, are welcome to attend as well.
Our Strawberries and Waffles lunch was a sold out event. On July 15th our members enjoyed delicious waffles topped with assorted berries and whipped cream. Great lunch and lots of good company. Thanks to all the many volunteers –without our volunteers we wouldn’t be able to have these great “get together’s”.
Looking forward to next year!
