OUR NOVEMBER CALENDAR
Tuesday, November 3rd – Sally is looking forward to teasing your brain at BRAINTEASERS/TRIVIA FUN! Research shows that the more we exercise those brain muscles the longer we will have them! It's better to wear out than rust out! So sign up for a fun program that will include a variety of questions and answers! No need to worry about what you do or don't know because it’s all about the fun and the learning – even if we forget what we have learned shortly after! There will be a variety of topics and challenge levels. Please have paper and pen handy for writing down your answers 1:00 – 1:45pm. Maximum 10 Participants.
Tuesday November 10th - “SONGS OF THE WAR YEARS“ Please invite your family members to join us all for this SPECIAL REMEMBRANCE DAY presentation! For the past 15 years, Sally and her good friend, Molly Boyd, on piano, have entertained audiences throughout The Okanagan and The Kootenay’s with their highly acclaimed MUSICAL journey through the years of the Second World War. You will discover and rediscover the music of an era when music held people together as they endured the hardships of the war. These songs and the stories around them will be the perfect way to honour those who served our country, both at home and overseas, from 1939 - 1945. This is a tribute to all who sacrificed so much for our freedom throughout the years and to those who are serving Canada today.
1:00 – 2:00 No Maximum on participants.
*Please feel free to invite your family to join us for this session.
Tuesday, November 17th - Once again join Sally at our second BRAINTEASER/TRIVIA FUN session of the month as she tickles your brain cells into remembering all sorts of things you may have forgotten.

Tuesday, November 24 - Sally will be playing her guitar and singing songs while adding a twist to the session!
