Do you like pancakes? I sure do! Which is why I always keep my eyes open for pancake breakfasts at halls and community centers. Today, the Hart Pioneer Center for their pancake breakfast and man was I impressed! They were oh so very fluffy and there was plenty of syrup to go around. The thing I love most about senior centers is not only how organized their events are, ut how strong their community is. Community is something that I am very passionate about, and is also something that I feel is lacking in my own generation. There’s just something so heartwarming about walking into a room that is full of people laughing, chatting and enjoying eachother’s company, and then being invited to join in. I hope that one day people my age will figure out the importance of a strong community connection, and realize the reward! Thank you to Joan Griffiths for the especially warm welcome.
After the pancake breakfast I drove down the deceivingly long highway to downtown, where I partook in the yoga 101 beginner series at Chinook Yoga. I went to this workshop last month and absolutely loved it. the instructor, Katrina is so supportive and informative and makes it easy to feel comfortable being a beginner. If you’re looking to dabble in Yoga, this is the class to try. It’s completely free and is held on the first Sunday of every month.
Then, as if that wasn’t enough excitement for one day, I drove over to Pine Center Mall for the Active Living Market. Over thirty different booths were there to inform people about classes, programs, teams and activities going on around PG. There was everything from junior rugby to swim teams. There were also some ladies from the Northbreast Passage Dragon Boat team. They explained to me that they plan to go to Penticton in September to compete, but don’t have enough people on the team. The team is exclusively made up of breast cancer survivors, so if you or someone you know is a survivor, and has an interest in rowing a dragon boat, make sure to contact them at http://www.northbreastpassage.com/.
Now it’s time to tidy my cubicle as it is full of banners and sparkles and papers from yesterday’s events. I can’t believe I’ve already been here for over a month, I am seriously having a ball.
