From the Desk of Elaine Bisson - SFC Publicity Director - NRT Article for 2021 Oct 20
Hello from the Seniors Friendship Club - Wednesday, October 20, 2021
For all indoor events Covid rules will be followed; masks and proof of vaccination will be required.
Expression of Interest Survey
An Expression of Interest survey was emailed to you recently. There are three short questions we would like your feedback on (a possible presentation by the WCCT and 2 social events). Thank you to those who have completed the survey and it’s not too late for those who haven’t yet.
Featured Photo
We know that some of you are fabulous photographers and we would like to feature some of your photos on our website and on our Facebook feed, on a monthly basis. If you would like to contribute a special photo for November, send your submission to for consideration.
Woodsy Wednesday Walks
We have enjoyed some lovely Wednesday afternoon walks lately, some in the Four Seasons Conservancy and some further afield. The location, time and distance are emailed to members a few days before our walk. Some of the trails are on fairly even ground and other trails can be rather hilly. It is a good idea to always bring a walking pole with you as you never know what we might encounter. Ann Serdula is our contact person for our Weekly Wednesday Walks. She can be reached at for details regarding the trails we plan on exploring each week.
Calling all Seniors for Coffee, Tea and Conversation
Each Thursday at 10 a.m. a group of seniors meet for Coffee, Tea and Conversation downstairs at the library. Currently a maximum of 20 people is allowed so that social distancing can be maintained. Donations for the cost of tea/coffee are welcome. Join us, you never know where the conversation will go. BYOM (Bring Your Own Mug).
Meditation with Madelaine
Madelaine Mageau is again offering meditation sessions via Zoom. This year you will have a choice of Wednesday mornings at 10:15 a.m. or Thursday evenings at 7:15 p.m. For particulars regarding these sessions please contact Madelaine at or call her at 613-584-9192.
Ships in the Arctic
The link to the Zoom presentation by Professor Claude Daley, Professor at Memorial University on “Ships in the Arctic – From Hudson to the Latest Icebreaking Patrol Ships” is now available for viewing. Email details on how to access this presentation were sent to members. Contact us if you would like us to resend it to you.
Service Providers List
From where to buy Appliances to who repairs Zippers. The SFC is updating their Deep River and Area Service Providers List. This is a list compiled by our members to share information for household services that they have used or researched. This directory is NOT an endorsement of a particular business or individual, and it carries no guarantees, but we hope that it will provide other SFC members with a starting point in their own search for a service provider. Forward your suggestions to Howard Keech at or to our SFC Administrator Melanie Theil at
Monthly Reader’s Choice
We will be hosting a “Reader’s Choice” with area librarians on a monthly basis. We are anxious to hear your recommendations of books you have read and what makes them so special. There is a long winter ahead and we all need ideas of what to read on days we can’t get out. Our first discussion will take place, via Zoom, on Monday, November 1 at 1pm. Details will be emailed to members soon.
Exercise Classes
We will be charging a nominal cost for the following activities and events. You will find a full description of all our activities and fees on our website and Facebook page. Contact us at for further information regarding these activities.
• Stretch and Balance Fitness and General Toning
There is still room in Wendy Spencer’s Stretch and Balance Fitness and General Toning classes offered on Monday and Thursday afternoons at 1:30 at the Deep River Library Program Room. Contact us for details if you would like to attend the last few classes of the month.
• Chair Yoga
Angela is leading Chair Yoga via Zoom on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. The benefit of a Zoom class is you don’t have to wear a mask and you can wear what you want! If you miss a class, don’t despair, the classes are recorded and link is sent to members who are enrolled.
• Line Dancing
Line Dancing has proved to be very popular. Our Tuesday class is now full and we are taking names for a waitlist for our November session. We will be moving to the Deep River Legion mid-November where we will be able to accommodate a few more participants. Details regarding this activity will be emailed to members soon.
The SFC is open to all adults living in the communities from Chalk River to Deux Rivieres. The SFC is an active community where seniors engage with other seniors. The age ranges from 50 to 100 but the club is open to anyone who would like to join on either end of this age spectrum.
For information of what your membership gets you, check out our website at <>. There you will find a full description of all our activities. Our Facebook page is a source of great current information. You can find us on Facebook at Sfc Uov. We can also be reached by phone at 613-401-3452.
