April 19 -- Good Morning Sunshine!

 

 

A quick reminder that the session on vaccinations and your health is taking place this afternoon  Monday April 19 at 1 and you will need to register to receive a link to attend. I’m attaching the flyer here for you. I’m not at Walker House this morning because the sub-floors are being replaced and the air compressor is super loud (I am absolutely not complaining though! It’s one step closer to our repairs being completed and I was worried that the latest lock down might impact the work.) I will be on my computer and check for emails so if you have any questions about registration, I can help you that way instead of on the office phone.

 

We have ukulele lessons at the same time and other special events this week include our book club meet on Wednesday at 10 and our walks on Tuesday and Friday mornings. (9:30 at Walker House on Tuesday and at the amphitheatre on Friday)

 

 

This is a Faith Lift week so you are invited to phone in on Thursday at 10:30 to enjoy the time with Rev Tracey Smith. If you’ve not attended before; this is a non-denominational gathering and all are welcome so if you are missing your church and not comfortable with the high-tech options that are being offered, please call in to Seniors Centre Without Walls at 1-866-279-1594 and when prompted, use passcode 595056 #. 

 

I have a fun treat for our crafters and have purchased Heritage Skills D.I.Y. kits from the Brockville Museum. These sweet boxes are filled with activities for adults and help support the museum at the same time. I have 12 here for pick-up and they will be first come-first served. We can share our unboxing next Tuesday on our crafter’s Zoom session and even do one of the activities together with the items provided. I am delighted with what is included! This first box focusses on the Edwardian Era and I have the next two (May and June) pre-ordered so if you miss your chance with this one I’ll make sure you can participate in one of the others. If this is something you would like to do with your friends then please reach out to Peggy at the museum at phause@brockville.com and you can order kits from her.

 

Keep on keeping on, my friends! We are doing a great job of taking care of each other J

 

April 13 -- Gardening, Witches, Vaccinations, and More...

 

It’s going to be another busy week here, so I’ve tried to highlight each event to allow you to skim through a bit easier.

 

We begin our week with Monday Morning Mindfulness with Una at 10:30 who will be returning to us on the 26th as well so it’s a double Una month. She never fails to delight and helps us travel in our minds to exotic places when our bodies are housebound. Kayla joins us over Zoom every Monday afternoon in April for Ukulele lessons.  For those with some experience playing who want to join in the fun, we are getting deeper into strum patterns now and you are welcome to pop in for a lesson and see if we have caught up with you. 

 

 

Tuesday mornings we are unfortunately no longer able to host Use Your Noodle. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Mary Campbell who has been a bright and generous partner with us on Seniors Centre Without Walls since the very beginning. Your cheerful presence was so appreciated and you will be missed, Mary. We wish you all the best and hope we see you on the walking trails around town.

 

We will meet behind Walker House at 9:30 to walk together weather permitting. We are following all safety protocols including limiting our groups to 3 or 4 and wearing face coverings while we are in close proximity. On Tuesday afternoons we have our craft and coffee group meet. Everyone is welcome to bring whatever crafts you are working on and enjoy each other’s company. Many of you have picked up a spring colours mask kit and I will help out with the instructions and look forward to seeing your creations. I have more of the supplies to make up kits if you are interested.

 

This is a Hoops and Hooks week, so Wednesday morning at 10am sign in for Show and Tell. Interested rug hookers are always welcome to see what it’s all about.

 

Sharon Stein graciously continues to offer drawing instruction for those in our Art Studio group each Wednesday afternoon at 1pm.

 

You may want to check out the Ottawa Public Library website as they are holding a spring gardening workshop with master gardener, Claire McCaughey on Tuesday. I am not able to sign us up as a group – you will have to sign up but the workshop is free and I am here to help if you’ve never used EventBrite before.

 

Thursday morning I am so pleased to bring you Pam Foster, RN, the Palliative Care Bereavement Coordinator from BGH. She will be with us on Zoom at 10am for a special presentation and discussion about grief in isolation. So many of our customs and rituals around loss are also lost to us during Covid-19 and Pam is here to help us deal with grief and offer suggestions on how to support our friends who are dealing with loss. Pam is such a warm and loving person and I hope you can make it.  We will be using the Coffee and Craft link from above to join the session.

 

Every Friday brings us a knitting and crochet meet-up at 10am 

 

We meet at the amphitheatre to walk at 9:30 and I’ll update on our progress along the Cabot Trail. Thanks to all who have sent in your miles/steps from other walks throughout the week – we sure have a long way to go, so they all help!

In the afternoon Peggy is returning from the Brockville Library to tell the story of Mother Barnes, the Plum Hollow Witch. We also have an exciting announcement about upcoming historical activity kits that we will be sharing.

 

We have a special and very timely event coming on Monday that you will want to pre-register for. It’s part of a series aimed at helping seniors avoid frailty and the topic on the 19th at 1pm is about vaccinations and optimizing medications to reduce risk. The presenter is Dr. Leah Nemiroff, geriatrician at Queens University Department of Medecine. Follow this link to register and I will be here to help you connect.

 

 

Have a great week everyone – stay connected and reach out if you need any support. Soon enough I will be able to bring tables outside and we will be together, but enjoy the virtual events until then.

 

April 8 --  Happy good weather and Good morning!

 

Our virtual walk of the Cabot Trail begins tomorrow April 9 at 9:30 from the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site (well, actually on Fridays we will be meeting at the amphitheatre here in Prescott to walk through the parks and marina)The Cabot Trail Virtual Challenge will take you 185 miles (297 km) along the natural beauty of the Cape Breton Highlands in Nova Scotia, Canada.

 

Each time you complete a distance-based exercise we will advance along with the map of the Cabot Trail. I’ll have snacks and fun facts along the way and some great prizes for participants – one random draw and one for the person who logs the most miles.

 

All Covid protocols will be followed, allowing us to safely share this experience together.

 

Here again are the guidelines:

1)      We will meet weather permitting on Tuesday mornings in the parking lot behind Walker House at 9:30 and on Friday mornings in the amphitheatre at 9:30 at least for the month of April. I’ll plan some other walks as the summer progresses to change up the scenery a bit from time to time.

2)      If you walk with me then I will track our miles but please also send me your miles if you have a fitbit, apple watch, or other method of tracking distance or steps and I will enter those in as well – you do not have to walk with us in order to log miles.

3)      In fact – you don’t even have to walk….cycling and swimming etc all count too – just measure the distance and let me know each week how you did.

4)      Bring a friend, bring your dog, bring your walking poles, bring a cane, bring a stroller – just bring yourself and get moving!

5)      We will be dividing up into small groups for Covid safety and also to allow us to move at a pace that is comfortable for every individual so please don’t stay home because you fear that you will slow anyone down. We want your company and there always seems to be someone who is happy to walk at your speed.

 

Baddeck is the beginning and end point of the world famous Cabot Trail, a popular stop en route to exploring gorgeous Cape Breton Island, a coastal playground offering hiking, kayaking, golfing, and whale watching.

You'll find the site on the shores of the Bras d'Or Lakes overlooking Baddeck Bay and Kidston Island. The stunning grounds are open and inviting, making it a popular spot to picnic and fly kites. Look southeast and you'll spot the Baddeck harbourfront, boardwalk and wharf. From the site's roof-top deck, you can see the headlands of Beinn Bhreagh, Bell's beloved summer home where many scientific inventions and explorations took flight.

Expect to feel instantly at home with the landscape, as Bell did when he arrived in 1885 and established his summer refuge. So compelled was Bell by Cape Breton's beauty he believed the area out-rivaled any other place in his global travels.

 

·         Remember too that in the afternoon April 9 at 1:30pm you can join our Zoom visit with the Royal Ontario Museum to explore their exhibits in a presentation entitled Queens and Goddesses. Their promises to be some beautiful art and sculptures from the museum.

 

April 5 - Hello, and Happy Easter

I just wanted to send a quick reminder of what’s happening this coming week. Because of the holiday Monday and the way April started Mid-week, I have shifted Monday Morning Mindfulness to the second and fourth Monday which will keep it opposite weeks from our Faith Lift. The first call in with Reverend Tracey is happening this week on Thursday at 10:30. Just call in to Senior Centre Without Walls at 10:30 with 1-866-279-1594 using passcode 595056. Also on SCWW we have Mary back with Use Your Noodle each week on Tuesday mornings at 11.

 

Our regular Zoom events are happening and I have created spring mask kits using lovely bright colours and an interfacing template. We can help each other through if you haven’t made a mask before for sure and all you need to add to your kit will be thread and a sewing machine.  I find this a nice pattern that is easy to talk in. Make arrangements to drop by and pick up your kit and then join us over the next week or two at the Craft and Coffee Group Chat to show and tell and for tips and tricks if you are struggling.

 Tuesdays at 1pm

 

 

We will be using this same link on Friday afternoon as we continue our Stories From the Seaway series:  we are casting our nets a little further though and I have invited the Royal Ontario Museum to present “Queens, Goddesses, and Women of Influence” to us on Friday April 9th at 1:30. Discover women of mystery, power and intrigue across many cultures and through time featuring some of the ROM’s collection of art and objects that tell these iconic women’s stories.  

 

Now that the weather is warmer, we are beginning our walking club again and will be counting our steps together towards a virtual walk of the iconic Cabot Trail. Our plans for April are to meet on April 9th at 9:30 and every Friday from the Marina (at the amphitheatre) and continuing on Tuesdays at 9:30 from the parking lot behind Walker House. Bring your walking sticks and your furry pals if you like and enjoy some company unless the weather is terrible. If you have a fitbit or other tracking device and want to track your steps on your other walks then you can send them in to me every week or two and I’ll keep you informed as we move along the trail. I’ll have some prizes and share details as we cover the miles.

March 23 -- Hello Spring/Summer

 

I will be taking a “renocation” next week; it's one of the bizarre new words from the pandemic as apparently we are not the only people who are spending the money saved from our cancelled vacations and instead renovating our home. It’s not a bad thing; our poor neglected house has been in need of some TLC for a while now. All our scheduled zoom events will go on as usual and you may see me popping in for a quick visit, and we have no phone meets planned. 

 

I’ll give you all our special event links for this and next week and will return with a newsletter and the schedule for April before the end of the month.

 

This week we have our zoom book club meet for “Half Blood Blues” on March 24th at 10am using our coffee/craft link. 

 

 

There has been a change for next month’s read and the planned book will need to be pushed ahead to May as it is not back in circulation yet. Jane has “The Rose Garden” by Susanna Kearsley for us and it is definitely a change of pace for our group involving time travel and a setting that includes Cornwall as it was hundreds of years ago. I’ll have them here for pick up when you return your book this week.

 

This is the 4th week of the month, so please phone in on Thursday morning at 10:30 for your Faith Lift with Rev Tracey. I have attached a photo presentation that you will want to have with you on Friday at 1:30 as this week’s Stories from the Seaway will also take place over Seniors Centre Without Walls.  Peggy, from the Brockville Museum will take us back in time to a day when the area was home to a number of Dance Halls! Let me know if I can print it for you to enjoy the call without your computer nearby.

 

On Wednesday, March 31, at 1:00 PM EDT we will be joining our tour guide Abby from Paris for our Detailed Virtual Private Louvre Tour featuring Its Collection of Sculptural Masterpieces These tours have been very well done and having a local and very knowledgeable guide has really added to the experience.

Here are the tips and instructions to join - 
1. To view the webinar, use the link via Google Chrome or Firefox, for iPad users, we recommend the BigMarker App
2. Pre-register with your name and email. You will receive an email with the link to enter the webinar.

3. System Requirements: Please do a system requirements check here https://www.bigmarker.com/system_check
4. You may enter the webinar up to 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
5. Sit back and enjoy while your expert guide tells fascinating stories to keep you on your toes during this exciting virtual tour.  

March 17 --  Happy St Patrick’s Day!

 

Our ukulele lessons have been so helpful and so much fun that we are extending them for one more month, so continue to tune in on Mondays at 1pm with your fingers warmed up and your uke all tuned up. We have reached the point where we are perfecting some basic strum patterns while changing chords and singing all at the same time – we’ve come a long way from Frere Jacques!

 

 

Our Stories from the Seaway continue with a Zoom meet this Friday with Peggy from the Brockville Museum. Her topic this week is “Brockville’s Dark Side: Crimes and Criminals” 

 

 

Our Book Club meets on Wed the 24th at 10am to discuss “Half Blood Blues’ and it promises to be a great discussion as we have some differing responses to this one.

 

 

I have chosen “Falling From Grace” by Coralee Boileau as our next book and I’ll have it here on the 24th so that anyone wishing to read it can pick it up when they return March’s book. It’s a book set in the East Coast and promises to be something completely different from our first two. I can’t wait to get into another good read! Let’s tentatively set our Book Club for the 21st of April.

We use the coffee and craft link for book clubs and they start at 10am.

 

And now – last but not least!

 

Thursday, March 18, at 10:00 AM EDT | Golden Mosaics, Winged Lions and the Floating City: Venice Virtual Private Tour. Our guide is Federica J

Please follow the link beforehand and pre-register with your name. If construction here is quiet, I will be at Walker House and can be reached at 613-925-5300 if you have any challenges, or you can reach me by email at walkerhouse@prescott.ca if I have to go find a quiet space. Once you have registered, you will receive a personalised link to join the tour.

 

 

Some helpful tips for our visit to Venice on Thursday:

1)      Use your biggest screen for these tours – a desktop or laptop if you can over a phone or tablet for sure!

2)      When you follow the link it will ask you to register yourself so go ahead and do that. You will then see a screen that counts down until the session starts. Please sign in before ten o’clock so that we are all queued up and ready to go at 10am.

3)      Download and use Google Chrome for this even if it is not your regular browser. It will work for you much better. We noticed that the few people who had some microphone issues were using apple (ipads or macbooks) and were not using Chrome. 

4)      For most of the tour, we will communicate with our tour guide using the chat feature as we will be muted until the end of our time together. If you are not sure where it is and how to use it, why not reach out to me tomorrow and we can have a practise session? Or, if you can jot your questions down and save them for the end then don’t worry about it.

 

 

Notice the mic symbol is a little different than we are used to seeing on Zoom. Please ensure that you find it and mute yourself immediately upon entering the session. Once you are muted, it will turn red. We found that it caused a lot of interference for the participants and I am not able to manage this so our tour guide will have to stop to mute each individual. 

 

 

March 8 -- Marching in

 

As I write this on a clear, sunny, frigid morning I am wondering if this may be the last of the super cold days. Slowly, but surely, spring is returning. Vaccines are already in some arms and will soon be available to all of our older members which, I know, will put many minds a little more at ease. I will keep you posted here through our weekly newsletter and also at our Face Book page as I learn any news you should know about procedures for vaccination so be sure to like and follow our page.

 

I have wonderful news to share about your membership to Walker House. With the support of our board of directors and the town of Prescott, Walker House is able to waive our membership fees for 2021. I will still be providing our virtual programming and opening up with in-person programming as Covid protocols allow, but will not be collecting membership fees until January of 2022. I’m so grateful for the support we receive from the town of Prescott and from the Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility because without that, we would not be in a position to make this offer. If you are one of our members who renewed in January or February, I have either shredded your cheque or will be mailing out a refund cheque to you in the coming week.

 

Remember for tomorrow’s special relaxation craft and coffee chat with our guest Winhara that I have your lavender treat bags here at Walker House to be picked up. I plan to be here from 9am today and tomorrow, and will also be here this afternoon until 4:30 so you can come by and I’ll meet you at the door. Every bag includes two organic herbal tea bags and if you would like to pick out your favourite mug/tea cup and just before you join, please pour 250ml of boiling water over both bags in your cup, cover and let steep for 10-15 minutes then remove the bags and I will share a fun mindfulness activity with you as we start.

 

Friday’s Stories from the Seaway is being held over the telephone and our special guest presenter is Sandra Shouldice who will be sharing “Strange but True Prescott Tales” Dial in at 1:30 using phone number 1-866-279-1594 and passcode 595056 to participate.

 

Also happening over the phone:

Tues, the 9th 11am: Use Your Noodle, quizzes and trivia with Mary Campbell

Thursday, 11th; 10:30am: Faith Lift with Rev Tracey Smith

On Zoom it is a Hoops and Hooks week so 10am on the 10th is our virtual hook-in.

 

I’ll start taking registrations for our exclusive guided tour to Venice happening next Thursday the 18th at 10am. I’ll send the links and some helpful tips to join in with next week’s newsletter.

 

March 2 -- a small hiccup

 

Una was delightful this morning and used my newsletter goof to inspire a fantastic twist to her mindfulness presentation. It was my favourite thus far, and we have had some incredible experiences with Una, so the bar was already pretty high. But it doesn’t stop there, because our co-host for Monday Morning Mindfulness is going to be bringing us something special this month…on a Tuesday…and in the afternoon…that’s right!

Winhara will still be joining us on Monday the 15th over the phone, but she and I have cooked up an afternoon event on Tuesday the 9th at 1pm. Using our coffee and craft zoom link, we will have an interlude to indulge ourselves with soothing smells designed to relax and uplift. I’d like you to register by email please by the end of the week and Winhara and I will create little gift bags for everyone that you can pick up on Monday at Walker House (I do curbside pick-up, you know) Each one will include, among other things, an essential oil roller and an organic herbal tea to brew up in your favourite mug while we meet. Winhara will share information and answer your questions about how to use quality oils to enhance your relaxation and sleep. We will, of course, also have time to chat and touch base as we always do on Tuesday afternoons. 

 

Topic: Craft and Coffee Group Chat with special guest 

Time: Tuesday at 1pm

 

 

 

On Wednesday morning you can join me for a quick little make-along workshop about fermented foods. I’ll chat a bit about the health benefits and I will be making a light and refreshing dill and lemon sauerkraut. If you’d like to make it with me, just have a cabbage, some fresh dill and lemon and some kosher or sea salt. You’ll need a sharp knife or a mandolin, a cutting board, and a big mixing bowl along with a clean mason jar and we’ll be good to go! Log in at 10am to join me in my kitchen.

 

Friday afternoon at 1:30, Peggy returns to us on Zoom for Stories from the Seaway: The Millionaires of Brockville. 

 

 

Now for some bad news – as I looked up the zoom link for the Penn Museum’s presentation Tuesday morning, it appears to have been cancelled. There is nothing scheduled in its place, so I think something has come up. If you were looking forward to some entertainment Tuesday at 11, why not try Use Your Noodle and call in to Seniors Centre Without Walls? To call in for any of those programs the number is 1-866-279-1594.

 

Have a great week everyone – March is coming in like a lion so that means out like a lamb, right? Just a few more weeks and we’ll be spotting daffodils and robins before you know it.

 

 

Hello!

We are starting Monday off with some new events so I’m getting this email out early so no one will miss out.

 

10:30 on Monday we have Winhara with us for Monday Morning Mindfulness on Senior Centre Without Walls. We all know that we need ways to manage stress especially in trying circumstances like we are living through today. One method is through mindfulness or meditation which can sound intimidating if you’ve never practised them before, but with us, it requires nothing more than a telephone and a comfy chair.  Winhara gently talks us through a guided meditation that allows you to take time to check in with your spirit and body and give them the attention they deserve. Show yourself some love and care by calling in ;)

 

Our first ukulele workshop with Kayla  is taking place over Zoom at 1pm and will continue until March 15th. I have sent the link out to everyone who registered, but if you’d like to join in, let me know.

 

Our book club (discussing “After the Falls”) is also taking place over Zoom on Wednesday morning at 10am using our craft and coffee chat.

 

++ Please return your book to me at Walker House by the end of the week and I will also have our next book here for you to pick up. I’ve chosen Giller Prize Winner, “Half Blood Blues” by Esi Edugyan. The story will take us into the world of a jazz musician in Paris and Berlin prior to the Great War – I can’t wait! I’m also tracking down more books by this month’s author as I enjoyed our read very much and I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

 

Our Stories From the Seaway launches on Friday at 1:30 with a Zoom session on Stetson Hats with Peggy from the Brockville Museum

 

 

Of course we continue with our regular events and I’ve included the winter schedule below.
