January 30 – Tai Chi new sessions – Beginner and continuation Tai Chi classes are held regularly at Prince Edward Community Care. Tai Chi is a way to help seniors stay fit and flexible.  Tai Chi is a low-impact form of exercise, but it is also a weight bearing exercise, which is an important component of managing osteoporosis. Some of the benefits of Tai Chi are: better balance, which lowers the risk for falls, less pain and stiffness, stress relief and increased calmness and sense of well-being. And to top it off, it also helps to improve memory.  No experience is necessary and all fitness levels are welcome. If you’re a senior who would benefit from Tai Chi and would like to give it a try, call the Prince Edward Community Care office at 613-476-7493 to register. Space is limited.

January 31 – PEC FIELD NATURALISTS’ MEMBERS’ NIGHT – Five short presentations –  Lichens; the night sky; bobolinks; edible weeds and a film about Sandbanks.  Refreshments.  7p.m., Bloomfield Town Hall.  Admission free of charge and everybody is welcome!
