From the Desk of the SFC Publicity Director, Elaine Bisson - Weekly NRT Article

Hello from the Seniors Friendship Club - Wednesday, March 22, 2023

Woodsy Wednesday Walks
Spring has arrived and there is a spring in our steps. It has been a rather grey winter. On Wednesday, March 22 we will meet at the parking lot at the Mt. Martin Ski Hill and walk to Burkes Beach.
Contact Ann Serdula at to let her know if you plan to attend. As always, please check your email before leaving the house in case we need to postpone.

Coffee, Tea and Conversation
Join us on Thursdays at 10 am for Coffee, Tea and Conversation in the Program Room of the Deep River Library. At times we welcome a speaker to our Thursday get togethers. We are pleased that Margaret Macpherson, author of “Tracking the Caribou Queen” has agreed to join us on Thursday, March 23 to discuss her book. Everyone is welcome.

Excursion to the Mapleside Sugarbush
You can almost smell the sap dripping from the maple trees. A trip to the Mapleside Sugarbush has been arranged for Saturday, April 1. We will meet at the CEC beside the Community Church at 11:15 am and carpool first to the Irving Big Stop in Pembroke for a lunch at 12:15 then to Mapleside Sugar Bush for a 1:30 tour. The tour should last about an hour. We hope to be back to Deep River by 3:30.
An email with details was sent to members on March 6. We would like to know if you are interested in joining the group by March 24th. More information about the Mapleside Sugarbush can be found on their website at

Tai Chi
Have you ever wanted to try Tai Chi? We will be hosting a 6 week Tai Chi class beginning on Tuesday afternoons at 1:00 pm in the Deep River Legion beginning on Tuesday, March 28.
Details and cost can be found on our website.

Bowling was so popular we have decided to offer 2 sessions on Tuesday April 11 at either 1:30 - 3:15 or 3:30 - 5:15 with the option of joining fellow bowlers at the Sante Fe Restaurant at 5:30. Registration is open to members until March 23 and then, if there is still room, we will welcome non-members. Registration closes on April 3. Check our website for details and cost.

Are you interested in a dance class? Kristen Glowa will put together a swing or salsa session for interested members. Contact us if this is something of interest to you and we will see what we can put together.
