The book club meets on the 4th Thursday of each month at 1pm. The members discuss what everyone is reading and usually there is a special reading assignment of a book, special author or subject. Refreshments are served and a special book draw is held. The cost is a toonie which goes towards refreshments and large print books for the Bay Shore Library.
The craft group meets on Tuesday afternoons (except the 2nd Tuesday of the month) from September to June at 1pm. The ladies work on many different crafts making things for the Craft Bazaar and charity organizations. There is always a member who is willing to teach new comers to knit or crochet. The craft group donates a substantial amount of money to Bayshore every year from our sales.
MINDFULNESS & MEDITATION
EVERY MONDAY at 6:30 p.m. at BayShore Seniors Club:
Practice Mindfulness and Meditation for Stress, Anxiety, Sleep, Focus, Fitness, Clarity of Mind, Pain Reduction, Conflict Resolution and More. Together we will practice various approaches to mindfulness and guided meditation in a relaxing, safe and non-judgmental atmosphere. Beginners welcome. It’s never too late to start.
Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Meditation is a practice where an individual uses a technique – such as a visualization – to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mental clarity and emotional calm and stability in the moment. Contact Dawna at Bay Shore for more information or to sign up.
Wood Carvers meet on Friday afternoons at 1pm. All are welcome regardless of skill level for Chip Carving, Relief Carving, Sculptures, Wood Burning etc. Some tools are available for new members.
