Rural 60 Plus News
If you enjoy playing cards, you may want to join us at Rural 60+ to play euchre. If you aren't familiar with the game, don't let that stop you! The game is easy to master and co-ordinator Marie Mann will teach you the finer points. We will play at the Centre every second Friday at 1 p.m., beginning on March 2, then again on the 16th. As the 30th is Good Friday, the Centre will be closed and we will resume our games on April 6 and 20th. If you'd like to give it a try, there is a sign-up sheet on the front counter at Rural 60+.
Change of plans! Yoga classes have been postponed for 2 weeks and will now resume on Thursday, February 15, at 10 a.m. All other details remain the same.
