Little Fort Rec Society host senior’s workshops

The Little Fort Rec Society recently received a grant through the federal government’s New Horizons for Seniors Program, which was presented to the group by MP Cathy Mcleod. The money is already being put to good use in the Society’s “Back to Basics and Beyond”, a series of workshops and information sessions which focus on seniors, either as instructors, or as participants.

The Little Fort Rec Society recently received a grant through the federal government’s New Horizons for Seniors Program, which was presented to the group by MP Cathy Mcleod. The money is already being put to good use in the Society’s “Back to Basics and Beyond”, a series of workshops and information sessions which focus on seniors, either as instructors, or as participants. 

 The object is to bring seniors into contact with each other and younger members of the community, as well as providing an opportunity to socialize during the winter months. Since people become somewhat isolated during the cold weather, getting involved in interesting  activities will help to bring them together and share their experiences.

The workshops, held at the Little Fort Community Hall, have been well received, some that are planned in the future include; various baking, canning, antipasta “Cook and Share” sessions, quilting, stained glass, fly tying, GPS instructions, basic guitar theory, byzantine bracelet making, Brazilian embroidery, and Christmas wreath making.

A Christmas Baking Cook and Share session is scheduled for Dec. 18 and Dec. 19 (must register by Dec. 15), and dates haven’t been set for the January workshops. Little Fort and area residents will be given first opportunity for registration at all the sessions, but space permiting others are welcome to attend. For more information call Roz Scovill at 250-677-4272.

With such an interesting variety of workshops available, Little Fort residents are not likely to suffer ‘cabin fiver’ during the coming winter month.
