All the New Horizons activities and programs are up and running this week. Flatten those abs!, Stretch those muscles! Get out and join the crowd before winter dust balls infect the belfry. Attached is a program listing all our activities complete with times and contact info. So, no excuses!
Literary Lunch for 2018 launches this Thursday, January 11, with a presentation from Ellen Leslie on the Hornby Island Water Plan. Sounds promising … or is it ominous? Come and see. By the way, Judith Lawrence is always looking for speakers and presenters. Got a story to tell, rumours to start, interesting people to finger? Call Judith 335-0751.
And Golden Lunch starts Monday, January 15. A catered lunch, a glass of something, a scrumptious dessert and fine company. Beats a peanut butter sandwich at home, doesn’t it.
Ron Edmonds is the recently appointed representative from New Horizons on the Ferry Advisory Committee. By now you’re aware of the new ferry schedule. How wonderful! Almost the same as what we had 5 years ago. Whoever it is we have to thank for finally acknowledging how counterproductive those service cuts were, well, thank you. Bonus! Attached is a schedule for you to print formatted to show connecting ferries. Still some wrinkles but so much better.
The New dishwasher has been ordered and will be installed soon. We’d dearly like to get a better fridge at the same time but we’re also facing some unanticipated electrical renovations so we’ll have to see.
Okay, you waited for it. Here it is. January 25 – The other major winter celebration! Yes, its Robbie Burns Day. Doors open 5:30, dinner at 6:00. Tickets are $15, available at Lit Lunch or by calling Verna Kimmerly 335-0630. Honour bar, and yes, there will be scotch. More details to follow
