Amtrak tour set for January

Limited seating available for Kent Street Activity Centre's Washington shopping trip

On behalf of the staff at the Kent Street Activity Centre, we wish you a very happy holiday.

A friendly reminder to our members and visitors that Kent Street Centre will be closed from Dec. 24-27 and Dec. 31-Jan. 2.

Members are encouraged to pick up their copy of the Kent Street Update to reference the 2011 end dates and 2012 start dates for their favourite activity groups.

It’s not too early to plan for 2012.

Limited seating is still available for the Jan. 31 Amtrak Shopping Tour. Let the shopping begin at two of Washington’s top shopping destinations. Shopping for the unique items at Trader Joe’s (a personal favourite), and then continue to Alderwood Mall featuring Macy’s and Nordstrom. Finish the day with a two-hour train ride on the Amtrak to Bellingham where the mini-coach will meet you.

Avoid disappointment and register today, 604-541-2199.

It’s time to get moving.

Join instructor Magali Cardoso for 10 sessions of Social Ballroom Dance starting Jan. 23 in the afternoon at the Kent Street Activity Centre.

Register for the singles session to dance with other singles, or if you are part of a couple register together. Featuring a little bit of each – rhumba, mambo/salsa, cha cha, waltz, foxtrot and tango.

For more information, call 604-541-2199.

Is there a budding artist in you?

Enjoy any of our six fine-arts courses offered; Chinese Brush Painting, Drawing & Colour, Painting in Oils or Acrylics, French & Post Impressionism with Early Modern Art, Open Studio Painting, and Watercolour Painting.

All these courses will be starting in January at the White Rock Community Centre. All levels are welcome.

For more information or to register, please call 604-541-2199.

Habla español?

Have you always wanted to learn Spanish but didn’t know where to start? Beginners Spanish with instructor Carlos Rabago will be held on Thursday afternoons at the Kent Street Activity Centre.

This six-session course begins Jan. 26, providing basic conversational instruction in a supportive, informal setting.

Kent Street members can hone their newly developed skills in the Conversational Spanish activity group, held Thursday mornings at 10 a.m. in the Kent Street Library.

Sweetwater is playing live on stage this week at Kent Street’s last Wednesday night dance for 2011.

Doors open at 7 p.m., with social dancing from 7:30-10:30. Refreshments served midway.

Tickets purchased at the door. Open to all 50-plus; couples and singles are welcome.

Please note: the New Year’s Eve Dance is sold out.

Wednesday night dances resume Jan. 11, 2012.

We couldn’t possibly list all the opportunities for adults 55-plus here.
