The Silver Threads Seniors Club has a group of seniors who meet every Friday from 9 am to 4 pm. The entire upstairs is open to quilters, and sewing. We have ironing boards and other items for your use. With the use of the entire room, everyone can spread out and have lots of room. We have a kitchen where you can make yourself a coffee or tea. You can bring your lunch or order in. Everyone is welcome.

We are in the process of planning our regular bus trip to the Stone Fence Theatre in Eganville. Not only is it a great and fun play, you get a delicious roast beef dinner. Give us a call or e-mail Faye and place your name and your friends name on the list.

The summer activities at the Club are: Mondays: Bridge at 1 p.m.; Tuesdays: Bingo at 1 p.m., and Bid Euchre at 7 p.m.; Wednesdays: Weight Watchers at 5 p.m. Thursdays: Yoga at 9:15 and Painting at 10 a.m.; and Fridays: Quilting at 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Euchre at 7 p.m.

If you have an activity that you would like to try, come in and discuss it with us. Are there people in the community that would like get together and play chess, or any board game? We have our liquor license, so birthdays, retirements, any party or seminars, etc. We have the lease on the entire building. Come see us!
Maybe you don’t want alcohol being served, we can accommodate you with any activity or seminar, or meeting.

The Blue Day Book—Bradley Trevor Grieve: So how can you find that blissful “just sliding into a hot bubble bath” kind of feeling? It’s easy.

First, stop slinking away from all those nagging issues. It’s time to face the music.

Now, relax. Take some deep breaths (in through the nose and out through the mouth). Try to mediate if you can. Or go for a walk to clear your mind. Accept the fact that you’ll have to let go of some emotional baggage.

Try seeing things from a different perspective. Maybe you’re actually the one at fault. If that’s the case, be big enough to say you’re sorry.

Don’t be afraid to bite off more than you can chew. Take big risks. Never hang back. Get out there and go for it. After all, isn’t that what life is all about?

Have a fun filled summer. See you at the Club!
