Hello from the Seniors Friendship Club - Wednesday, May 5, 2021
 
The Seniors Friendship Club is open to all adults living in the communities from Chalk River to Deux Rivieres. In order to keep us safe during these times, there are many online and virtual activities. Contact us at uovsfc55@gmail.com. We can also be reached by phone at 613-401-3452.
Consider becoming a member. Our Facebook page is a source of great current information. You can find it at Sfc Uov. Find our website at <www.seniorsfriendshipclub.ca> and you will find a full description of all our activities.
 
 
Art Gallery of Ontario Tour
The AGO virtual tour on May 5 at 6:30 pm is fully booked. Participants will once again be treated to some of the works of art in the Art Gallery of Ontario. The number of participants is kept low in order to have a lively discussion about the works.
 
 
Cooking with Jenna
Join us on Thursday, May 6 at 11:45 am as Jenna Walsh leads us through the preparation of another nutritious recipe to tempt the palate.
These cooking lessons are free to you and are made possible by the Government of Ontario – Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility
 
 
Great Courses
Exploring the Mayan World - May 12th at 10:30. A virtual trip to Mérida: the capital of Yucatan and the cultural capital of the entire peninsula. You’ll visit a run-down hacienda where they’re reviving the industry that made the Yucatan so rich over 100 years ago and even go shopping for the perfect hammock. The presentation is approximately 30 minutes in length.
Zoom details will be emailed out.
 
History with Harris
The Roaring Twenties - "It was a decade of prosperity and dissipation, and of jazz bands, bootleggers, raccoon coats, bathtub gin, flappers, flagpole sitters, bootleggers, and marathon dancers." 
Join us on Wednesday, May 19 at 10:30 am, via Zoom, as we take a trip back to the Roaring Twenties! 
 
 
Petawawa Horticultural Society
The SFC would like to thank the wonderful gardening enthusiasts from the Petawawa Horticultural Society for their time and effort during the months of March and April. 
 
 
Vanessa Reads Mary Cook
Contact us if you would like the link to the recording of our April 28th event where we enjoyed hearing Vanessa read the stories of the Ottawa Valley's own Mary Cook.
 
 
Yoga
Please note that effective Tuesday, May 11th, we will be offering Chair Yoga with Angela in the mornings only.  The low attendance in the evening class suggested that it was not a good fit at this time. Perhaps we can offer it again in the fall. 
There will be NO Chair Yoga on May 18th, but we will resume on May 25th again for morning yoga.
 
 
Tee Lake Canoe Trip
Although we are hopeful that we can continue with planning the Tee Lake Canoe Trip scheduled for May 26, we will be taking our direction from the RCDHU.
 
 
Hip and Balance Fitness
Please note that there will be NO Thursday May 6 Hip and Balance class. Kim will be back on May 13th  to carry on with her class for two more weeks.
 
 
Meditation
Weekly on Thursdays at 7:15 pm Madelaine Mageau will lead you through meditation exercises. Newcomers are welcome. Contact the SFC for details. To speak to Madelaine, call her at 613-584-9192 or email her at mado@nouveau.qc.ca.
