In this report I would like to remind you of the many activities that are available in March at the Hillsview Active Living Centre.
On Monday's a group gather at 1:00 pm. to play Mexican Train Dominoes. By the sounds coming from the Games Room they must have a lot of fun. Come on out and join them, I'm sure they will teach you how to play. And you can come back on Tuesday at 1 to play Canasta.
If you speak French or would like to improve your French, a group called the Pause Cafe meets at 9:30 on Wednesday to converse in French over a cup of coffee and sometimes some goodies. It is a drop-in program and open to all members. They would love to have you join them no matter at what level your French is.
On Thursday, March 12 we are celebrating St. Patrick's Day with our Annual St. Patrick's lunch. You will get some of Nellie's famous Irish stew, a biscuit and dessert. She guarantees me the stew is made with beef. Along with a delicious lunch we will be entertained with the smooth sounds of our Jazz Duo. Tickets for this event can be purchased at Reception.
Dance the night away at the 'Winter Blues Dance' to be held on Friday, March 20, just in time to celebrate the beginning of spring that Wiarton Willie promised .

Supporting Mental Health is a responsibility we all share. We are all different. Don't judge, understand instead. Sometimes it's hard to ask for help and talk about our Mental Health.
The Hillsview Active Living Centre in Georgetown has partnered with Canadian Mental Health Association and we now have friendly, qualified counsellors at a Free Walk-In counselling service available in Halton Hills. No appointment is necessary and is on a first come first served basis. The Clinic is open Thursdays from 12:30 to 8:30 pm. with the last session at 7:00 pm. We are located at Unit 9, 318 Guelph Street, rear entrance to the building.
Great to see all the new members. If you are still not one of them what are you waiting for? Our motto is: Enjoying Life In Good Company.
