Chantry Centre a hive of activity heading into Spring

Heading into Spring, the Chantry Centre 50+ in Southampton continues to offer programs and activities for adults every day of the week.

Some new learning programs are also being offered throughout the month of March that include Learning to Use Zoom, Memory and Aging, Reflections on Spirit and Beginner Watercolour Classes.

The FREE in-person ‘Learning to Use Zoom‘ class takes place on Wednesday, March 15th at 1:00 p.m. and is designed for beginners.  The only requirement is to bring a device – phone, tablet, iPad or laptop. Learn how to join, talk and navigate online conversation, seminars and meetings using Zoom along with Safety and Security.

Starting March 23rd, there are five sessions being offered in-person and on-line looking at Memory and Aging from 10:00 a.m. to noon with an instructor from the Alzheimer’s Society Grey Bruce. In-person cost is $30 for Chantry Centre members and $45 for non-members and includes a workbook and on-line only is $20.

Also on Wednesdays from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. is the Reflections on Spirit that will focus on spiritual concepts relevant for all faith traditions in developing virtues, prayer, and life and death. It may also be of interest to people who see themselves as spiritual but do not have a religious practice. Call the Chantry office to book – 519-797-3096.
