SENIORS’ SCENE: Fall programming returns

Kent Street Activity Centre activities start anew after summer break.

Now is a great time to sign up for a White Rock Recreation and Culture program.

Whether you are interested in fitness, wellness, the arts or making new connections, there is a vast array of programs and activities available at the Kent Street Activity Centre, White Rock Community Centre, Centennial Park Leisure Centre and the Centre for Active Living.

Visit any centre and pick up a copy of the Fall Recreation Guide, or view it online at www.whiterockcity.ca/register

Many of the Kent Street Activity Groups will be returning from the summer break next week, including Bingo.

Join this fun group for a social afternoon every Tuesday from 1-3 p.m. Come early to pick your lucky cards for small cash prizes and jackpot games.

Be sure to have your 2015 recreation and culture membership, or purchase one for only $18 for the remainder of the year.

Call 604-541-2231 for more information.

Attention all gardeners and fruit tree owners.

Are your trees full of fruit and does your garden keep producing lots of delicious vegetable and herbs that you just don’t know what to do with it all?

Why not donate your extra fruit and vegetables to the Kent Street Centre kitchen, which reopens Sept. 8.

Call 604-541-2231 for more information.

During September and October, celebrate the third annual Fall Festival of the Arts.

With more than 40 different arts and cultural events, there is something for everyone – art shows, concerts, theatre and more.

An event listing can be found in the fall Recreation Guide or online at www.whiterockcity.ca

If you find the dinner hour a hard time to be at home alone, the Tasty Connections program is for you.

In the company of others, prepare and cook a meal, enjoy the meal together and make enough to take home each week.

Starts Tuesday, Oct. 1, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Kent Street Activity Centre.

Call 604-541-2199 to register.

On Tuesday, Sept. 22, 9-11 a.m., learn about the common types of credit-card, debit-card and telephone frauds.

Find out what you can do to ensure you do not become a victim.

Call 604-541-2199 to register for this free workshop, co-sponsored with White Rock Community Policing and the RCMP.

Planning a trip abroad and need to brush up or learn Spanish? Register now for a beginner Spanish class, starting Thursday, Sept. 17, 12:30-1:30 p.m. at the Kent Street Centre.

Continue to practise the language in the Spanish conversation group that meets every Thursday, 10-11 a.m., in the Kent Street library.

Membership is required. Call 604-541-2231.

The Kent Street dance committee welcomes you back from the summer break Wednesday (Sept. 2) for some social dancing to live music.

Singles and couples aged 50-plus are welcome. Doors open at 7 p.m., with dancing from 7:30-10:30. Refreshments served midway. Cost is $6 for members; $7 for non-members. This week’s band is G7.
