From the SFC Publicity Director for NRT - 2019 April 17
 

Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow? A whole lot better, without all this snow!

Those who bowled on Friday had a good time and enjoyed a delicious dinner afterwards, put on by Heather at Longshots! Thank you, Heather!

For all of the members who attended yesterday's social, thank you for coming and thank you to all of the volunteers who assisted. Thanks also to Michael Stephens, and to the DR Fire Department for sharing the information with us.

Wendy's Senior Stretch class continues in the library every Monday and Thursday afternoon, beginning at 1:30, for a small fee ($8 pp) to help with costs.

Wayne continues to hold billiards in his home at 10 Newton on Tuesday afternoons beginning at 1:30, until June 25. As space is limited, please phone Wayne ahead at 613-584-2385.

Our 'Movie of the Month' in the NRLTCC on Friday, April 26, sharply at 1:30, is 'The King's Speech' starring Colin Firth.

If you would like to go to Ottawa to see the Tulip Festival on Wednesday, May 15, you have until Friday, April 19 to contact Cathy Chapman to reserve a seat. The subsidized cost is $20 pp.

For the experienced paddlers in the club, Peter Brewster is organizing the annual canoe trip on the Snake River in mid-May. Please contact Peter at 613-584-4054 to join in the fun.

Also, on May 28 in the CEC, we have guest authors Howard and Rose Pell with co-author Missy Gore to speak to us about their books; Retire Fit, Fit & Fit. Retire Fit with S.A.F.E. Workouts. Please join us when we welcome them to Deep River. Following the refreshment break we will have a Tai Chi demonstration.

One more activity in May on the 30th will be a Lawn Bowling demonstration at the Lawn Bowling club. This demo will begin at 1:30 with refreshments provided. Dress comfortably and wear flat shoes for this one.

Our social in June will be in the Yacht and Tennis Club on Tuesday, June 11 beginning at 11:30. We will have music, a delicious luncheon catered by Maven Catering (subsidized) with the Annual General Meeting (AGM) following. After the meeting you might want to enjoy some meditation on the front lawn or maybe a pickleball demo on the back courts. Tickets ($10 pp) for the lunch will be available at the Olive Tree from May 15 to 31.

Once again the plea goes out to members who might be interested in joining the Executive board of the club as due to the by-laws, we are losing 3 terrific team members.

We are organizing a trip to enjoy a Dinner Cruise on the Chief Commanda in North Bay on Wednesday, July 24. Prices have not been finalized but it promises to be a worthwhile trip as we cruise Lake Nipissing in the evening while enjoying a delicious meal. The cruise begins at 6:00 PM so it may be a bit late when we get home. Stay tuned for more information, but contact Cathy Chapman early to reserve a seat.

We are also planning an excursion to see the Bonnechere Caves and then on to the Wilno Tavern for supper sometime in August.

As well, in August we hope to elicit help from our friendly pontoon boat owners to take another cruise on the Ottawa River. Watch for the details.

If you are interested in refreshing your driving skills, we will organize a class for '55 Drive Alive' if we have enough interest. Please contact Cathy at the information below.
