Two bus trips this year

Monday, September 9, 2019: Bus trip to the Lake Joseph Centre in Muskoka

At Lake Joe, people living with sight loss and their families can enjoy the same summer pursuits as other Canadians. Canoeing, campfires, kayaking, cycling, water skiing, swimming, sailing, and fishing. Plus there's skills training, confidence building, and support from a community that understands living with sight loss.

Situated on a 14-acre beach front property at the north end of Lake Joseph, the centre is fully accessible and features all kinds of water sports and other activities, including walking trails through the woods.

This one-day trip to Lake Joe is like having a day at the cottage!

Tuesday, October 1, 2019: Bus trip to Stratford (Private Lives, by Noel Coward)

You can't fight love, but it's fun to try!

In Private Lives, Elyot and Amanda are reunited by chance five years after their divorce - while honeymooning with their new spouses. Succumbing to raging ex appeal, they run off together to Paris, only to discover all over again - hilariously - that there's more than one way to drive each other crazy.

The wit of Noel Coward is at its cheekiest in this uproarious romantic comedy, set in a sophisticated world of cocktails, glamour and sparkling repartee.

Approximate runtime: Two hours and 12 minutes, including one 20 minute intermission.
