The snow is falling, our Winter 2020 Idea Exchange Magazines have arrived, and the new year is just around the corner. Celebrate December with great programs to help you make the most of the end of 2019. Read on for some December highlights, and check out the monthly calendar for a full listing of events.

Give back to the community and help someone in need this winter with our Woolly Wonders program on Mondays from December 2 to March 2 from 3:30 – 4:30pm at Clemens Mill. Drop-in and join fellow knitters and crocheters and make a hat, scarf, mittens, or other items that would provide someone with some extra warmth as the days get colder. All items made during this program will be donated to various charities in our community. Please bring your own supplies (yarn, knitting needles and/or crochet hooks).

Tis the season for cookies, fudge, chocolate, and so many other sweet treats! It’s easy to indulge this time of year, but don’t let holiday eating stress you out. On Wednesday, December 4 from 6:30 – 7:30pm at the Old Post Office, join us for Healthy Eating During the Holiday Season. Registered Dietician Kristi MacMillan will share simple strategies to keep healthy habits during the holiday season. Please register for this free program.

Between holiday shopping, gift wrapping, and all of the other tasks the holidays bring, it’s easy to feel anxious or stressed this time of year. Our Holiday Meditation program on Thursday, December 5 at 7:00pm at Queen’s Square can help! This evening with Lotus Meditations will help you discover some ways to help relax over the holidays. No previous experience necessary, all are welcome.

Calling all carolers and shower singers! Join us for our festive Sing & Sip program where an instructor from Vera Causa Opera will help you sing in harmony with fellow singing enthusiasts. This program takes place on Friday, December 6 from 7:00 – 9:00pm at Queen’s Square. No experience necessary, each participant will receive a complimentary drink at our hot chocolate bar. This event requires registration, costs $5.00 + HST, and is for ages 19+.

For those grieving the loss of a loved one, the holiday season can be a time of overwhelming emotions and challenges. Anything But Merry is a free community information session, offered through Bereaved Families of Ontario – Midwestern Region, that shares coping strategies to help you through. Join us for this program on Thursday, December 12 from 7:00 – 8:00pm at the Old Post Office. Registration is required.
