Happy New Year
Welcome to the January 2021 Grapevine! And good bye (good riddance) to 2020.
In This Issue
While the Club remains on “hiatus”; all is not lost! Many of us have revisited activities long abandoned like; skating, snowshoeing, gardening, knitting, baking sour dough bread - the list is endless. We've learned to shop online and pick up curbside. The holidays brought Zoom dinners, long distance hugs and thanks to cooperative weather, many walks and outdoor activities. People have said the holidays were certainly more relaxed as we learned new meaning to the phrase “do more with less”. Santa was vaccinated in time and was still able to visit safely. 2021 brings hope and a renewed sense of optimism for a return to activities vital to our well being, especially dance.
This edition brings us some great tunes, and a lesson to keep us in shape for a return to dance! Check out Tech Tips for a great tip on managing email!

“A shout out and thank you to the Class of Wednesday@ 8 for their support and kindness through our weekly Zoom gatherings."
Why are all Fred Astaire dance studios on the first floor?
Because they are afraid of stairs.
A man of many interests and talents; Lorne was an avid member of and volunteer for the Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre and the Prairie Pathfinders Walking Group. One of his varied interests; carpentry, resulted in many construction projects, among them the family cottage and home renovations.
Lorne will be remembered by Wanda, and their daughter Heather (Gord), son David and two grandchildren, Kyla (Aaron) and Graeme, and extended family.
We will miss Lorne’s kind words of support and generous smiles both on and off the dance floor.
