October 2023

FCSS Speakers’ Corner Over a year ago, Dinah of FCSS approached us with this idea. Now, with the Activities Committee’s plan to add it to Birthday Mondays, it’s bound to become a staple. In August, artist Arlene Western’s painting workshop. Doing art is said to enhance cognitive function and improve memory: we can all benefit from that! Participants were given a blank canvas, blobs of paint, a brush, and water. Arlene’s undemanding help made it a relaxing experience, with a piece of art to take home. In September, Johanna and Carole presented the work of Caregivers Alberta. Founded in 2001 by a group of concerned caregivers, the organization strives to empower caregivers and promote their well-being by providing resources, mental health support, and education for Albertans caring for family members or friends. We also met Pam who is taking over when Dinah retires this month. We thank them both for including our Club in their work with Beaumont seniors. If you can think of topics that would be of interest, please contact Ilona or Barb Willis, and we will forward them to Pam.

§ What's a turkey's favorite Thanksgiving food? > Nothing—it's already stuffed.
