The ornamental wooden wheelbarrow handcrafted by Paul Bissonnette is now filled to overflowing with wonderful items suitable for summer and the garden. The tickets are on sale at the front desk. It would make a great gift to share with friends. There are also tickets for the penny table, which is set up on a table near the front desk. The winning tickets will be drawn on Saturday, May 12 at the bazaar and luncheon. Thinking of the bazaar we will have both indoor and outdoor plants for sale, so now is the time to start looking at your plants to see what can be divided as the first shoots start to appear. Hopefully, we will be out in our gardens in the next few weeks checking the winter damage and looking for signs of life. The new newsletters should be available this week, and we will be trying a new way of distributing them. Only the two senior apartments on Elizabeth Dr. and Birchway will have labels on them, and hopefully someone who lives in the apartments will make sure that they are hand delivered. Everyone else will pick them up near the front desk. If you know a neighbour who is unable to get out, perhaps you would be kind enough to deliver one to them. The Evening Euchre held on March 21 was enjoyed by everyone and the lunch was provided by Kate Nilsson and Marj McEnery. The lone hands were Chris Robertson and Eileen Wedge and the High Lady were Eileen Wedge and Chris Robertson (I guess that means they had the same score?). High Man was Kate Nilsson, Second Lady, Betty Brewer, Second Man, Bill Brewer and the booby goes to Marj Bartels. The next game will be on Wednesday, April 18 at 7:15 p.m. The Income Tax Clinic on March 27 was filled but there are openings for the April 17 session. If you would like more information or to make an appointment call Eileen Dix, 519-853-0493. There will be a spring fashion show at the centre on Tuesday, April 10 at 2 p.m. It will feature all the latest in spring clothing from Alia Fashions. Tickets are available at the front desk and the admission price will include prizes and refreshments. The clothes from Alia are always very wearable for the young at heart or more mature seniors, which is great. Swimming is a great way to get exercise, and if you haven't had the opportunity to swim at the Gellert Community Centre pool in Georgetown now is the ideal time. Young's Pharmacy is sponsoring a free swim on Tuesday, April 3 or Thursday, July 12, 11 a.m. to noon. The hiking group will be starting after Easter on Friday, April 13 at 10 a.m. They have quite a group hiking most Fridays and really enjoy the hiking and companionship. The hikes aren't usually too long or strenuous. Thinking of Easter the centre will be closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday and reopening on April 10.
