From the SFC Publicity Director for NRT - 2019 February 13

Well, Mother Nature raised her moody head and decided to freeze rain last Thursday which resulted in us cancelling our sleigh ride; however, we have a new date of Thursday, February 28th. We will depart from the valu mart parking lot at 9:30 a.m. and we will be carpooling. Upon arrival at the farm in Renfrew, we will divide into 2 groups - one group will take the sleigh ride while the other group enjoys a nice warm bowl of chili & a bun and a sweet treat & beverage; then the groups will switch. Anyone preferring something instead of chili is welcome to bring their own lunch. There will be a small fee ($15 pp) for this outing. If you are interested in joining us, please contact Cathy Chapman at 613-584-1577 no later than Tuesday, February 19th.

Snowshoeing continues! Anne Seck will be leading the group for the next three Wednesdays. We will leave from the chalet on Balmer Bay Rd at 1:30 pm and will be out for approximately 1 hour and a half. If you are planning to join us, please phone 613-584-4394 earlier in the week just in case the weather causes a cancellation; Anne can let you know.

Wendy's Senior Stretch class continues in the library every Monday and Thursday afternoon beginning at 1:30 pm. No registration is required but there is a small fee ($8 pp) at the door to help with costs. All members, men and women, are invited to join in. This class can be adapted to those who may need a chair but will nevertheless give you a good workout.

On Tuesday, February 19 come out and enjoy a Soup and Sandwich Lunch in the CEC beginning at 11:30. There will be a small fee ($10 pp) at the door, for the delicious meal that will be there for all to enjoy. For those who would like to contribute soup or sandwiches there is no fee but please contact Elaine Findlay at 613-584-2244 well in advance, as she does us an enormous favour by taking charge in the kitchen with the food donations and coordination for this day. We will be entertained by Bob Christie and John MacDonald again with their delightful musical talents. We will also have a door prize for everyone to take part in. This promises to be a yummy day!

The movie in the NRLTCC beginning at 1:30 on Friday, February 22 will be 'Shirley Valentine'. "Shirley Valentine is a middle aged housewife, taken for granted by her husband Joe and spending her days cooking, cleaning and quite literally talking to the kitchen wall. She longs for some adventure and thinks back to her days as a carefree and rebellious teenager. Her chance for adventure comes up when her friend Jane asks her to accompany her to an all expenses paid holiday to Greece where she meets Lothario Costas, who makes her feel young and alive again. When the time comes to return home, Shirley must make a decision." This comedy will be one you won't want to miss.

And last but not the least is a wonderful travelogue of Ailsa Eyvindson's Scandinavian Nordic Ski Adventure on Monday evening February 25 at7:00 pm in the Library. A donation to the food bank would be much appreciated as an entry fee.

We have recently been receiving an increasing number of requests from different groups asking us to promote their events. While we believe they are all of interest to our members, we believe these requests exceed our mandate.
