Come with ideas and enthusiasm 

Participating in creative activities has been shown to improve our cognitive skills and create a confident and optimistic attitude.

Cook Book Club  – Are you interested?  When shall we meet?

The Paige has a good collection of cookbooks.  Let’s explore them and kitchen test the recipes.  Come help us develop this group which will meet at the Paige … participants will choose when to meet and what the topics will be.  Each session might have a theme.  We may plan an ethnic meal or perhaps try cookie recipes. Should we compile a cookbook?

Sharing with others in groups reduces anxiety, improves self-esteem, and helps members’ sense of overall well-being.  Where else can you accomplish that, enjoy the company of some very interesting people, and learn something new?
