JUMPING JANUARY!



 Imprimer   Envoyer 

Here, pure and simple, are a bunch of activities to fill your January days to overflowing.
First, for the body - healthy active living strikes again.

VIACTIVE
Just for the 50-plus crowd: The Viactive groups that are bilingual or in English are up and at it again after the holidays. All three groups meet on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. for an hour. The sessions are free, and no skill is necessary - you can even do the exercises sitting down if that works better for you. It's a load of fun.

In Bury, volunteers Irma Chapman and June Morrison are waiting for you at the Armoury Community Centre, 563 Main Street.

In Cookshire, you will be welcomed by volunteer Serena Wintle at the Centre de Loisirs Cookshire at 75 Castonguay Street, just off Principale Street East.

And in Sawyerville, Denise and Gérard Nault will bid you bienvenue in both English and French at the Sawyerville Community Centre, 6 Church Street.

Questions? Contact the Centre d'action bénévole du Haut-Saint-François at 819-560-8540, option 9.

YOGA
Myrna Lowry's gentle yoga classes begin again on Tuesday, January 22, at 10 a.m. at the Sawyerville Community Centre, 6 Church Street. If you can't make it there, you can also attend the Lennoxville classes. They begin Wednesday January 23, one at 10:30 a.m., the other at noon. Both are at the St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, 256 Queen. Info: 819-875-5393.

Then for the mind - here are some telephone workshops about several troubling topics, and how to register for them.

CAREGIVERS AND BURNOUT
What caregivers need to know about avoiding burnout is the topic of a workshop by phone, organized by the Care-Ring Voice Network and hosted by AMI Québec (Action on Mental Illness). It's planned for Wednesday, January 16, at 7 p.m.

RARE DISEASES
Orphanet, the portal on rare diseases - A resource for patients, caregivers and health professionals. Think orphan diseases, think internet. Orphanet is an information-packed website about a variety of rare diseases. You can learn more about it from home by phone. The Quebec Coalition of Orphan Diseases is hosting this workshop on Thursday, January 17, at 12 noon.

MORE ABOUT ALZHEIMER'S
Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders: Some Additional Details. The Alzheimer Society of Montreal is hosting this follow-up telephone workshop on Thursday, January 24, at 11 a.m.

CAREGIVER KNOWS BEST?
Here's a dicey topic. "But I do know what's best, don't I?" How your desire for doing it your way can interfere with caregiving. The Family Caregivers' Network Society brings this to us by phone on Thursday, January 31, at 9:30 p.m.

REGISTER
Register quickly for any of these workshops. Call 1-866-396-2433, email info@careringvoice.com, or visit www.careringvoice.com. Registrants will receive the phone number that will permit them to participate.

Finally, for the soul - well, okay, for humour, as in laughing-fit-to-be-tied.

WELCOME, WRETCHED WRITERS!
Planning is advancing for the new quirky literary contest, the Bulwer Purple Prose Project. Participants are invited to submit just one sentence - the first sentence to the worst novel ever. The new deadline for submission is March 15. The awards dinner is planned for April 6 at the Bulwer Community Centre.
All this is in honour of the 19th century novelist Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, who so graciously gave his name to the tiny village of Bulwer. Our Bulwer!

Here's how he began one of his novels:
"It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents - except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness."
- Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, in Paul Clifford (1830)
See the contest rules at http://bulwerpurpleprose.wordpress.com/, whip out your pen and join in the fun.
