Its been a beautiful weekend and for those of us who love to watch golf, finally Tiger has his mojo back and is playing great golf.  The Para Olympians have done an excellent job and the men’s hockey team won the silver medal.  These athletes are such a wonderful inspiration to everyone and they represent Canada so well.

The Seniors Club is busy with all of its activities such as:  Swedish Weaving, Bridge, Bingo, Bid Euchre, Fitness three times a week, Tole Painting, Fitness Room, Yoga, Line Dancing, Regular Painting, Regular Euchre, Quilting.  Come in and join us and make us new friends, we have some incredible people in our community.

The club is offering a free fitness class downstairs on March 27, April 24, and June 26.  Starting in the month of July, this will be a regular Tuesday morning fitness session.  Be sure and come in and check it out for yourself.

We will be having a Western Night Dinner and Dance on April 19.  We will have a delicious meal and plenty of music to dance the night away.  We will have a 50/50 draw, a raffle basket, a door prize and other prizes.  The cost of the dinner/dance is $25 for members and $30 for non members.

The winners of the Friday evening Euchre were:  Royce and Phyllis Slater, Helen Moores, Gabe Tosello, Mary and Bill Stevens.

Falls Cause Serious Injuries: In older adults, falls typically cause hip fractures and head injuries.  They are also the leading cause of death and injury, often from traumatic brain injury.
Even if an injury isn’t life threatening, falls have harsh long-term consequences for older adults because their bodies usually aen’t able to recover fully.  They can end up needing extended stays in nursing homes or assisted facilities or a significant amount of in-home help. Be careful out there and stay safe.

The Seniors Club is located at 1163 Victoria Street, Petawawa.  You can phone the Club at 613-687-6574 and e-mail us at
Support the community and I will see you at the Club!
