Advance Care Planning: Think, Choose, Talk & Record
Thursday, October 22, 1 pm

Planning ahead before a health crisis is something all of us should do, but many people don't know how to begin or are unaware of the importance. You are invited to learn about the process of Advance Care Planning at this FREE seminar! Please pre-register at the Front Desk by October 16. Light refreshments included.

Halloween Costume Contest & Parade
Friday, October 30, 12 pm

Fire up your creative juices and join the fun! We're giving prizes for the Funniest costume, the Most Vintage costume and the Most Halloween-y costume, then display your work for everyone to see in the parade at the café!

Don't forget to FALL BACK!

Make sure to turn your clocks back one hour before you retire on Halloween evening!

And with the shorter daylight hours, take care to be more visible when out walking: wear light-coloured clothing or reflectors, use signal-controlled intersections and marked crosswalks whenever possible, recognize your own limitations—perhaps you need to wait for the next full crosswalk cycle, and finally, realize that poor weather reduces everyone's visibility. It's important to be SEEN and stay SAFE!
