Bird Watching

Black-throated Green Warbler

Suzanne Borkowski has lead three groups around Dauphinee’s Pond (behind the Rona Store in the Hubley Centre) and Jerry Lawrence Park. 10-20 species are seen during each walk including osprey (shown below), barn swallows, tree swallows, red-winged blackbirds, ducks, warblers (Black-throated Green Warbler shown at right), and flycatchers.

If you are interested in participating, please email social@bayseniors.ca or call 902-820-3334. Osprey - Dauphinee's Pond

 

 

 

Tai Chi Programs at the Seniors Association of SMB

Seniors Association Tai Chi Class

Tai Chi comes in many forms and some are particularly suitable for older people.  The movements involved are slow and gentle, and we are carefully watched to ensure that they are correctly performed so as to avoid injury. It is instilled in us that patience and practice are required and we should not expect to learn the entire form in a single session.

The health benefits of Tai Chi include muscle strengthening and flexibility leading to better balance and prevention of falls, general physical and psychological benefits, and improved concentration and memory. All this is achieved by joining a friendly group of like minded people in a relaxed atmosphere.

 

Anyone interested in finding out more about the classes is welcome to come and observe, usually on Monday mornings. Check the Community Calendar for details and locations.  Enquiries can be made by email to TaiChi@bayseniors.ca or call 902-820-3334. Spaces are limited so early sign-up is recommended.
