So much has been happening at the Herman Prior. We were one of the lucky winners selected to go to Southport and try out the new bowling lanes before the official opening. What a blast! None of us were superstars, but it was sure nice to get out and have some laughs. I highly recommend that you go check them out!
Also new for us is that we have partnered with Simply Hart from Portage for fitness classes here at the Centre. One is Euforia! which is Latin aerobics, starting October 17th at 10 am, and the other is a Seniors’ Fitness class, starting October 18th at 1 pm. Activity and camaraderie are vital to all ages and so it is important for people to make time for going out, being with people, and being active.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, October 4th. I can not express how grateful we are to the wonderful volunteers that help to make our day to day operations run so smoothly, and what a great job they did for the luncheon. We do have a Roast Beef dinner coming up on October 16th, so make sure to get your name on the list for that one, as we do need to know how much food to prepare, and getting the call at 11:00 am is not enough time to cook another roast!
October 8th is the George Murray Memorial Cribbage Tournament. This is a partners tournament, so if you are needing a partner for cribbage, let us know. Start time is 1:30. It will be followed by a potluck supper, so make sure to bring a dish too.
Upcoming on October 21st (a Sunday), we are having a Wine and Cheese Social. This is being done in order to raise the money needed for the cash portion we have to supply for grants we are applying for in order to move ahead with our desired renovations to improve the Centre and our programs. Your ticket will get you three glasses of wine along with cheeses, with soft music playing in the background as you visit. There will also be a Rainbow Auction with great prizes. If you don’t want to have wine, we will have non-alcoholic options available. Or you can simply buy a ticket to support us if you do not want to attend.
See you at the Prior.
