From the SFC Publicity Director for the NRT - 2019 December 11.
The Seniors Friendship Club would like to thank the Chalk River and Area Lion's Club for their very generous and thoughtful donation of $500.00 made to our club in November.  Like many clubs, the Chalk River and Area Lion's Club works very hard with a limited number of volunteers to give back to their community and beyond.
We are very busy planning new and exciting events for the new year and our new schedule will be available and emailed out shortly.  If you would like to receive the schedule and info on our activities make sure you have renewed your membership. If you wish to join please contact us as soon as possible.  Remember if you are the young age of 90, or more, your membership is free.

**Belly Dancing Workshop with Suli Adams - January 9th at 1:30 at the CEC** Come join us for an afternoon of fun and laughter and try something new.  Suli Adams will be showing us just how to do that by presenting a talk on middle eastern dancing, the history and costuming and how it has evolved to current day forms of dancing,  which includes influences from other cultures. Suli will talk about expressing emotions through dance, in particular using a veil. Then the fun part begins as we learn to dance with a veil, and maybe get some ideas for Valentine’s Day lol??  Mark your calendars guys and gals, this sounds like a lot of fun.
