Session Date Change for Week of February 19 ONLY !
Monday, Feb 19 is the FAMILY DAY Stat holiday. Also known as a very brief reprieve from slogging it through winter’s snow, slush, and biting winds. The normally scheduled Tai Chi session is pre-empted…so that you all can enjoy family re-acquaintance….
As we predict balmy weather on Thursday, February 22— that is when this week’s Tai Chi session of balance, form, and mystique will be held: Same Tai Chi time, same Tai Chi location!
For those of you fearing the potential onslaught of withdrawal symptoms, find your fix in this Saturday’s Tai Chi event celebrating Chinese New Year in Kitchener– see Events page.
Session Date Change for Week of Jan 22 ONLY !
Due to concerns about the forecasted freezing rain for Monday, Jan 22, and the potential this presents to our members and guests, we have rescheduled this week’s session to: Thursday, January 25 at 7 pm.
(Essentially same procedure as if Monday were a stat holiday)
Just in time for Christmas! Gift Certificates are now available!
See the Home page…
Friendly Reminder – Our sessions resume January 8, 2018
Merry Christmas !
Tai Chi Bradford – Simcoe presented its gracious host, Bradford’s Royal Canadian Legion, with an old hand-carved brass-lined wooden mug bearing the RCAF crest – reportedly carved by a prisoner of war – in gratitude for the support of the Legion and its fine members. As hoped, the mug will be added to the Legion’s fine display of historic relics.
Also at the event, the Legion’s very noble Veteran Banner Program was further promoted – founding a new annual tradition of honouring a growing number of local veterans on commemorative banners that will be hung in a colonnade of lamp posts leading into the old village core, in the weeks leading up to Remembrance Day.
See the Events Page for news!…
