With the onset of colder weather, many of us are no longer exercising outdoors, so it is more important than ever to keep active.

Research shows that regular exercise keeps us healthier and happier. Register now for fitness classes starting in January. Get Up and Go 65-plus, Cardio Workout & Stretch, Stretch and Strength, Keep Fit 55-plus and Cardio Circuit are just some of the classes that can help reach your fitness goals.

Check out the Winter Leisure Guide health and wellness section for all the wonderful programs that will be starting this January.

The guide is available at the Kent Street Centre and online at www.whiterockcity.ca

There are lots of computer lessons beginning in January.

Start with an introductory course and then move on to Internet browser, understanding e-mail and editing photos.

The more knowledge you collect, the more enjoyment you will get out of your computer.

If you have grandchildren visiting over Christmas, consider taking them to a Holiday Break Skate at Centennial Park Arena. Admission is only $2.75 and each session has a different holiday theme.

Call the arena info line, 604-541-2171, for skate days and times.

The last Fresh and Lively Luncheon of the year will be held this Friday, December 9.

Call Senior Support Services at 604-531-9400 to get your name on the attendance list for this popular outing, which is held in the Kent Street auditorium on the first three Fridays of each month.

The first Fresh and Lively Luncheon in the new year will be Jan. 13.
