We had a great turn out for the Seniors Information and Active Living Fair at the Nick Smith Centre. Great to see everyone who stopped by our booth for info and a chat! Greeting folks here is ABMSH Executive Director Dennis Harrington.
Kathleen’s Creations – March 2019
Kathleen’s lovely ladies have ‘Sprung into Spring’ making these lovely origami folded decorated gift boxes that hold a tea lite candle holder and a candle snuffer (made with roof flashing).
Each box is made with beautiful pastel spring coloured paper and decorated with daisies and butterflies – each unique to its creator!
The group meets every month from September to June generally on the third Wednesday of the month and the workshops are free but limited space is available so call (613-623-7981) to put your name on the waiting list.
Nothing spells ‘FUN’ like crafts, laughter and friendship and nothing spells ‘YUM’ like ‘tea and treats’!
Next Workshop is Tuesday, April 16, 2019 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm at ABM Seniors at Home (106 McGonigal Street West).
