Was that thud on the roof the last falling leaf or the first visiting reindeer?

  •  First up, the Better at Home program is getting relaunched with a new coordinator.
    This is an initiative of Hornby Denman Health Care Society aimed at linking volunteers
    to shut-ins and those with limited mobility to provide small services other than personal
    care. There is an information and training session 1 to 3 pm on December 3rd at the
    HDHCS office. If you’re interested in being a volunteer (sainthood and self-satisfaction
    is the salary) or just curious, call Dominique Husereau at 250-898-0245.
  •  The last Literary Lunch for 2018 is Thursday December 13 and if you survive the
    holiday season the first Literary Lunch for 2019 is January 10. Mark those calendars
    now while you’re still conscious. The last Golden Lunch will be on December 21 and
    will begin again on January 4, 2019
  • The last day for most of our sponsored programs in the current term will be during the
    week of December 10 -16. However, Bowling ends December 4, both Yoga classes
    and Bridge on the 18th and Feldenkrais on the 20th. If you’re concerned about any
    mental and physical slothfulness you might acquire over the holidays most of the next
    term’s programs will start up during the week of January 7 to 13. Please consult the
    website hornbynewhorizons.com/calendar/ for all the info. Keep moving, keep meeting.
    Its good for you.
  •  If you put off getting a 2018 phone book, you’re too late -they’re sold out. The good
    news is that presses are ready to roll on the 2019 phone book. You have a few days
    left to make corrections or add a listing (maybe the cat now has his own private line)
    and that deadline is November 26 – Email hornbyphonebook@gmail.com or call Don
    Geppert 335-2636. The new book will be out before Christmas – he said with
    complete confidence.
