New Programs in February
Living Together with Cancer
Couples support group facilitated by Cheryl Moore, MSW, RSW.

Six session program will meet on the second Wednesday, monthly from February to June at 5:00 – 6:30 pm. Pre-registration is required. Limit 5 couples.
Move to the Music
Express yourself through dance. This informal class will combine simple movements and self-expression as you let the music elevate your mood. Dance away the February blahs – and if you feel like singing along, well just go for it! Starts February 19 at 11:00 am.
Do you love to read? Do you love to share? Do you love coffee or tea? Book Club will meet every other week beginning on Friday, Feb. 6th.
Kick cancer’s butt in song! Group singing is cheaper than therapy, healthier than drinking, and can be as much or more fun than working out. And you don’t even need to be able to carry a tune in a basket. Survivor songs pairs popular, easy to follow tunes and with fun new lyrics to make you laugh, breathe and sing! Starts Monday, February 23rd at 3:00 pm. (Moving to 1:00 pm in March).
Gather in the Board room before Women’s Support Group and Card Making for tea, coffee, hot chocolate and if you’d care to bring some baking – all the better! 12:00 – 1:00 pm.
