Members of the New Horizon Club were entertained on April 24, as they participated in and watched the Club’s 23rd annual variety show with Helen Brazier as Emcee – a full program that included singers, skits, piano, piano and flute combo, jokes, comic readings and dances with the Can Can as the finale. The verdict? No one has more fun than seniors.The spring program has included a Valentine party, celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, and a get together for lunch at the King Starr restaurant in Smiths’ Falls.
On May 8, at 2 pm, members and guests will be attending a “High Tea”, and will enjoy traditional scones with whipped cream and strawberry jam, a variety of sandwiches, squares and cookies with their tea. The 2018-19 membership year will end with the annual picnic, which will be held at noon in the Burritt’s Rapids Community Hall. Bring a picnic lunch and chairs, and dessert will be provided.
The New Horizon Club is an active group which offers members a variety of activities. For information about program activities, dates, times, and membership please call Janet at 613-2737 or Shirley at 613-258-9315.
Ruby Crawford is one of the longest serving members of the New Horizon Club. She was also one of the most active members. In addition to helping out wherever help was needed, Ruby participated in our variety shows, she played the mouth organ in our rhythm band, and played roles in the annual Christmas pantomimes. Now in her Nineties, Ruby recently sold her home and moved to the Van Horne retirement residence in Smiths Falls where she is active and also enjoys participating in their activities. We miss Ruby and were pleased that she was able to join us and to participate in this year’s variety show.
