SILVER SON: Petawawa seniors are excited for the big day
Content of the article
We are approaching very close to that day which is the magic of Christmas for everyone, even the âbah humbugâ among us. The trees are erected and decorated and the treasures of yesteryear are sorted and hung with pride. We have things the kids made in elementary school and they have to go to the tree every year, even though they look pretty sad after 40. I am always amazed when my kids come home for Christmas and are looking for the familiar decorations from long ago. Most baked goods are their old favorite things to eat, Rice Krispies squares, cherry cake, gingerbread, old fashioned Christmas cake, and Russian and shortbread cookies.

The Silver Threads Seniors Club will be closed for the Christmas holidays and all activities will resume on January 4, 2022. If you are not a member, consider becoming a member as it only costs $ 25 per year. We charge a small activity fee, have food, tea and coffee available, and you can meet members of the community.
We were trying to get a bus trip to a mall in Ottawa unfortunately most companies have a hard time finding drivers. These are some of the activities we have had to cut back due to COVID. Maybe with all the many hugs we have received, things will start to improve in 2022. I’m starting to feel like a human pincushion.
We provide Nordic walking poles for seniors. You can consult them through the office.
Here are the activities we offer our members: Swedish weaving; low impact aerobics twice a week; bridge; bingo; euchre offer; Tai chi; yoga; oil painting; watercolors; acrylics; quilt; regular euchre; Reading Club; rentals; and a fitness room.
We have delicious frozen meals available for the low cost of $ 7, and there is an extensive menu to choose from for a nice dinner, snack, etc.
Silver Threads is located at 1163 Victoria Street in Petawawa. The phone number is 613-687-6574 and the email is [email protected]
We have an elevator, automatic doors, lots of parking, and great people with a loyal community spirit.
To everyone in our beautiful city, we wish you and yours a wonderful Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy New Years and a Happy New Year. Meet at the club.
