From the Publicity Director for NRT - 2017 October 18
 
Well, exciting times; sort of. After enjoying a beautiful buffet dinner, at 'Buffet des Continents' in Gatineau, the group encountered major bus problems and took taxis to the Mosaic display in the park while the bus driver fought to get the bus working again. After walking for a couple of hours, in temperatures that weren't too bad, the group got chilled but took it in stride and walked over to the museum where they were able to have a hot beverage and get refreshed. Thankfully, just before closing, the fixed bus arrived to gather everyone. Even with this huge glitch everyone enjoyed the exhibition and food on a day not soon forgotten!
 
For those who registered for 'Art with Olga' (we have a full class) on Friday Oct 20, don't forget the instruction begins at 1:00. in the Library. If you have not already done so, you can drop payment of $45.00, in the lock box on the counter of town hall, in an envelope with your name and the event written on the outside. The price will cover the cost of materials and go toward room rental.
 
'La La Land' is the name of the movie this month playing at the NRLTCC on Friday, October 27 beginning at 1:30. An aspiring actress (Emma Stone) serves lattes to movie stars in between auditions, and jazz musician Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) scrapes by playing cocktail-party gigs in dingy bars. But as success mounts, they are faced with decisions that fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart. Don't forget to mark this date on your calendar!
 
A reminder that Seniors Stretch with Wendy begins tomorrow (Thursday, OctOber 19) at 1:30 in the Library (downstairs). This class is designed for both men and women; there is no need to register. If you are interested just show up. Price is only $7.00 per member. Come and check this class out.
 
The Ottawa Shopping bus for Thursday Nov. 9 is full, but we will continue to take names until the end of this month. The price for the day is $90.00 per person. This price includes the bus trip and your dinner. If you are interested in spending Thursday, November 9 in Ottawa, ending with dinner at Tuckers Marketplace, then please call Cathy Chapman to reserve a seat on the bus at 613-584-1577.
 
Billiards (pool) begins again at Wayne Workman's home (10 Newton) for those who would like a quiet game. Please contact Wayne at workman@magma.ca or 613-584-2385.
 
And lastly, besides being Hallowe'en day, Tuesday, October 31 is our next social, beginning at 1:30 in the CEC, with Patti Kinghorn asking 'Are your ducks in a row?' Patti will share some good advice, ideas, and information that we may not already know. Come and find out. Then enjoy a 'cuppa' and treat before the Ageing Well Theatre group delights us with this year's performance.
