Hornby New Horizons Newsletter

October/November 2018 News Letter


The fall season is upon us, along with a new season of fun at New Horizons!
We had an awesome turn out at the Meet & Greet in September. It was a
packed house, filled with conversation, camaraderie and delicious Hornby
fare to share. We have sixteen new members. All of the programs are now
up and running. For more information on them check out our website And, by the way, you can purchase a
book of 12 Program tickets for $10 at Literary Lunch or Bridge, or by
contacting either Holly Morgan or Jean Christie.

On a business note, if you have not yet remitted your Membership Dues
($25 per member – a veritable bargoon {if I ever saw one!) please contact
Diana King or drop off your payment in the New Horizons box at the Co-op
Free Post. Please and thank you.

Movie Night starts up on October 24 with the hilarious “A Fish Called
Wanda”. Doors open at 7PM and the movie starts a half hour later. Don’t
forget to bring your popcorn tub! Theatre Outings have already started,
with “The Ladies Foursome” or “Enchanted April”. The next pièce de théâtre
is “A Christmas Carol”, playing on Saturday, December 29th at 2PM in
Courtenay at the Sid Williams Theatre. If you want to attend, please contact
Christl Hansen at 335-2666.

Literary Lunch is as popular as ever, but we need help! If you are interested
in helping out in the kitchen or can provide a pot of soup or a yummy
dessert, please contact Bev Lownie. On Thursday, October 25, Andrea
Kaback will be updating us on how things are working out for the school.
And, remember, everyone is welcome to Literary Lunch, not just members.

Speaking of food, we are resurrecting Pot Luck Dinners!! Yay! Come out on
November 3rd with a dish to share and join in on the fun! From there we roll
right into the holiday season with the annual Christmas Party! Please mark
your calendars for December 15th – details to follow. Anyone interested in
helping out email

2019 is feeling very close at hand so we are starting work on the new
Telephone Book. Please contact Don Geppert at 250-335-2636
or email to be added and/or to advise of any
change(s) in address and/or phone number.
