ACTIVITIES

This is a partial list - all activities are run by volunteer members and can change at any time. If you do not see an activity you are interested in, you may want to volunteer to start up a new activity. All activites are advertised in the monthly Newsletter with reminders sent out during the month by email. Photographs taken during an activity are shared on the Private Facebook page as well as being included in the annual Memory Book. If a member does not want their photo shared, it is up to the individual to take themselves out of the group being photographed.

Book Club
 
Do you like to read?  Come join us for an informal but lively discussion of books selected by our members.  The book list is from a variety of genres but will always be available in paperback and usually in e-book format.   We will meet once a month at the home of a member or in the Party Room of Concord Place Condo.  We will have a sign-up list for members to host the meetings and provide light refreshments.  The discussion is informal and is led by a member who has previously volunteered to keep us on track.  All are welcome!

Fine Wine Night
 
This is an opportunity for members to sample premium wines from a specific grape varietal or growing region. The aim is educational as well as sensory and social.  Attendance is limited to thirteen.  Guests will contribute an equal share of the expense of wine plus an appetizer.  The event is held in a host house and will be advertised in the monthly Newsletter with a detailed description of the event and estimated cost. 

Breakfast  Out 
 
Breakfast Out is a wonderful way of getting together with friends and enjoying different restaurants in the Grimsby area.  We meet on the second Thursday of the month. This group is open to couples or singles. A different restaurant is selected each month by the Activity Facilitator, but recommendations from members are welcome. The number of attendees is limited according to the restaurant chosen so that each couple or person can receive a separate check.

Mix & Mingle
 
This is a fun and delicious way to meet new people and visit with friends in a Host's home. Participants sign up in advance and will bring "finger foods" to share with others, as well as their own preference for drinks. The Host provides the space as well as glassware and napkins or plates as needed. Each Host decides on how many guests are invited. The Facilitator will organize what finger foods are brought to ensure a selection of foods are available. This is a very popular evening event and usually held twice each month in a member's home.

Potluck Dinners


This activity is a fun and delicious way to meet new people and visit with friends.   They take place at different Host's homes once a month.  The hostess will provide the coffee and tea as well  as dishes/cutlery and the members sign up to bring an array of foods.  Every Potluck Dinner is a unique and delightful experience.  Participants will bring their own beverages. Advance registration is required and plans for the evening will be decided in advance.  

Cards and Games 
 

Hand & Foot, Euchre, Cribbage or a selection of other card and board games are played on a regular basis. Participants will bring their own drinks and snacks.

 

This activity is held in a member's home, or an area park, weather permitting.  Pre-registration for each card day is necessary to ensure we have enough tables and decks of cards.

Out to Lunch
 
The Out to Lunch is a fun and friendly group that meets the first Thursday of each month in an area restaurant.  It's a wonderful way to explore Grimsby area restaurants.  The Activity Facilitator determines the time and place. The number of participants accepted each month is determined by the restaurant of choice. Each attendee pays for her/his own selections.   

Walking/Hiking

The walking group meets once a week at a predetermined parking spot and walk for one hour.   To make walking more interesting, we walk at different neighborhoods each month.  Some of the places we go to have picnic facilities or restaurants near by so walkers can decide if they would like to stop for a drink or snack.   

 

The hiking group meets at a  predetermined  parking area and hike for 90 to 120 minutes, usually on the Bruce Trail.  Water, bug spray and proper attire and footwear  is recommended.
