OVER TWO HUNDRED ATTRACTED TO TIME OF OUR LIVES EXPO!
Bayfield’s Home4Good hosted “The ‘Time of Our Lives’ Expo” on November. 3 and 200 plus people attended during the course of the day.
The Bayfield Community Centre was transformed with white drapes around the walls, table cloths in lime green, purple and black, and by trees and fresh flowers imported by volunteers. Those enjoying a vintage adult lifestyle were delighted with the lunch from Charles Street Market and enjoyed the various speakers.
According to one of the organizers, Leslie Bella, of Bayfield, these are some highlights:
Pat Pal told us that “sitting is the new smoking”, and gave us lots of tips to remind ourselves to get up and move around

The Bayfield Ukulele Society entertained us with a sing-along over lunch, and got us all joining them with “You are my Sunshine”.
Pauleen Hoffman, from “Just in Time Solutions”, had her audience in stitches as she described strategies for ensuring that your children take all their junk with them when they finally leave home.
Neil Murray, from TD Wealth Management, warned us about the dangers of dying without a will, and the importance of ensuring that your children have wills as well.
Dave MacLaren described options for seniors’ housing, and how the new municipal plan could make some of them possible in Bayfield.
We were intrigued to learn how easy it would be to use “urban pole walking” to strengthen both upper and lower body.

Finally, Doug Brown led a graceful demonstration of Tai Chi, which fascinated the uninitiated.
Bella concluded, “Home4Good thanks our provincial funders, all the exhibitors, all the volunteers and the visitors for their enthusiastic support of this event.”
