NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS OF NEW HORIZONS


The BC Government has now declared a public health emergency with 12 cases of COVID 19 on Vancouver Island, with one known case in the Comox Valley. Gatherings of over 50 people are now banned. Many retailers are closing their doors across the country for the next two weeks and even local Hornby businesses and services are closed. To help mitigate the spread of the virus, the New Horizons Centre will be closed effective immediately, until the end of March. We will take it day by day as we move into April and beyond. We will, unfortunately, have to cancel current bookings and will not take any new bookings for now. We urge all members to practice social distancing as we move through this unprecedented health crisis.

Stay safe everyone!
The Board of New Horizons

NEWSLETTER FEBRUARY 29, 2020


SO SATURDAY IS AN EXTRA DAY THIS WEEKEND. THANK HEAVENS –
YOU TRY EXPLAINING HOW WE’D GET DIRECTLY FROM FRIDAY
NIGHT TO SUNDAY MORNING.

 

  • We’re coming up to the end of our winter programs. Please consult the attached PDF
    file to see the last day for your favourite activity. Note that some programs, Meditation,
    Chair Yoga and Bridge, continue all year. Also note that the
    Feldenkrais Workshop
    starts on March 5 and Posture Lab 2 on March 23.
    Pay attention eh, otherwise who
    knows what you’d miss.
  • Another activity that starts in the spring – April 29 is the first day – is Off-Island Golf
    for those who like to see a good walk spoiled (Mark Twain said it, not me). See the
    attached page for details. Karen Ross is the organizer
    karenross@telus.net
  •  Speaking of yoga – yes we were – New Horizons has purchased a stash of new yoga
    equipment; blocks, straps, balls, mats – all the stuff you need for your favourite S&M
    class. Wadaya mean, we don’t have one? I’ve heard that panting and groaning.
  •  Anticipating our AGM and a new year to follow, we are actively seeking candidates for
    the Board of Directors. Please look deep into your soul and consider whether you’d
    like to step up. We really are a delightful bunch that are just plain fun to hang out with
    – honest.
  • Last Literary Lunch is March 12. Don’t miss it!. And the last Golden lunch – for you
    special seniors – is April 3.
