The Mayflower Day Ladies had a great 2015-16 curling season. We celebrated every holiday on the calendar with food and merriment. These social gatherings are a great opportunity for us to get to know each other. In November, we hosted the Metro Ladies Bonspiel, welcoming teams from the Halifax, Lakeshore and Dartmouth Curling Clubs.
We raised money through our annual Bake and Book Sale, and through our newest fundraiser, Chase the Button. We donated heaps of Christmas gifts, along with money, to our chosen charity, Adsum House. And amidst it all we found time to curl twice a week, and enjoy some friendly competition.
We’ll capped off the season with a fun day on April 12, 2016. We encouraged members to bring any friends who might like to try curling. We’ll provided instruction and encouragement. Then we finished off the session in the Myers Room with pizza.
We picked up a five new members this year; but we’re always looking for more. And, as women reach retirement age, we encourage them to think about joining the Mayflower Day Ladies. It provides an ideal avenue for physical activity and social interaction with an eclectic group of women. Even if you’ve never curled before, we provide clinics and instruction to get you on the ice and enjoying the game.
And again this year, Mayflower upstairs will become a yoga studio for the summer. Starting in mid-May and running until mid-August, every Tuesday evening prepare to hit the mat and stretch out those hamstrings . Namaste. For more information contact Mary Mattatall at
Have a safe and blissful summer and we’ll see you in the fall.
