Hornby Island New Horizons

Newsletter December 2019


If you’re looking at the calendar and thinking “isn’t there a games night this Saturday?” Well, there would have been if we had our act together and hadn’t totally forgotten. Sorry, folks, that’s what you get for free help. We’re rescheduling for January. Bigger! Better! More games! Stay tuned.

Something you may have forgotten is the Financial and Estate Planning Institute (FEPI) Seminar Saturday, November 16, Community Hall, 9:30 to 1:00pm. This isn’t a New Horizons initiative but we would encourage anybody to have your affairs in order before dying – and this might be the thing that gets you started. You might still be able to register info@fepi.com or 250-443-4437. Details in the November First Edition, page 16.

If you haven’t renewed your New Horizons membership Diana would love to hear from you: diana_king@telus.net or 250-335-3025. Note: if you have changed any of your contact info – phone, email, address – please advise Diana. It’s really easy to lose people and we wouldn’t want that, would we? Besides the priceless pleasure of belonging to Hornby’s most (insert superlative adjective here) organization, membership gives you access to over 20 sponsored programs (see the attached list). Also note that if you are not a member and are participating in any of those programs where an instructor is involved you are obliged to pay the instructor’s fee directly.

A new program starting in January is Life As Theatre/Theatre As Life Mondays; Jan. 6-March 9 10:30 am-12 noon. Led by Phyllis Victory, this program could be described as improv theatre for holistic development. If nothing else, it should be fun! See attached.

And while we’re on the subject of theatre… the next off-Island theatre outing is The Best Christmas Pageant Ever in Qualicum on December 15. Contact Lindsay lrallen3@gmail.com or 250-335-1200 by November 23 if you’re interested.

And the news you’ve all been eagerly awaiting: The New Horizons Christmas Dinner is set for December 14th. Doors open 5:30, dine at 6:30. There will be games, angels, prizes, elves, maybe even a wise man. You have to register (we can only seat 70) so contact Diana at: diana_king@telus.net or 250-335-3025. We supply the mains you (totally voluntarily) provide the fix in’s. Be ready to tell Diana if you can bring and appie, veg, or dessert.
