A new yoga class and art for beginners – two programs being offered at the Peachland 50+ Centre!
Yoga is on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8:30 to 9:30. Instructor is Angie Cooper, and your first time is free! COVID-related restrictions are in effect.
And local artist Roberta Farrelly will be teaching a beginner’s class starting Sept 16, where you’ll learn all about using acrylic paint on canvas. You can visit the 50+ Facebook page or call (250) 767-9133 for more info.
The 50+ Centre has also managed to host a couple pancake breakfasts, under the current restrictions.
This is also a reminder that memberships ($25) are due! If you’re a new member you’re welcome to come into the office and pick up an application form (Monday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to noon). Payments can be made via Etransfer, debit, credit card or cheque.
What’s the Peachland 50+ Centre all about?
Operated by the Peachland and District Retirement Society, the 50+ Centre (at 5672 Beach Ave) is a social hub whose members are age 50 and better.
Through the activities they host, from artist groups, to games (bingo or chess, anyone?) and the annual rose show and Christmas celebrations, the centre is usually hopping with activity.
The Variety Singers are known to fill the room with lovely music and appreciative audience members. Local quilters, artists, and bridge enthusiasts can be found here, too.
It’s all about bringing together Peachlanders of all ages, and thanks to volunteers, the 50+ Centre’s potluck dinners and pancake breakfasts are popular family events.
