During October we supported Positive Ageing Week where the theme was reconnecting. While we do not have all our classes up and running due to some continued restrictions, we have about two thirds back and it is a wonderful feeling to have some structure and social interaction again in our week. On the Wednesday of Positive Ageing week, we met up in the Community Centre and had lunch supplied by TRIANGLE who are due to open in the Centre in November. If the fare at the lunch was anything to go by, we will be very happy to see Triangle open. The sandwiches were delicious. We do miss the opportunity to have a coffee or snack after our classes. The Wednesday afternoon gathering around 3 p.m. at the Community Centre is about having a place where we can just connect. Perhaps your class has not retuned yet? Meet on the Wednesday for a chat. Feeling a bit isolated? Meet on the Wednesday for a chat. Just show up and say ‘hello’. If there is one thing we may have learned during the pandemic restrictions, it is to get out and take all the opportunities we can! If you are new to the area or new to retirement – you just need to be 55+ - you can call in to DPCC and collect an AAfA New Member form and fill it out and leave it for us, or email us at the address above and we email a form out to you. We can make contact and will do our best to include you in classes as soon as possible.
