Virtual Self-Care Valentine’s Day Experience | Sunday, February 14, 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM | $15 | Sign-up Here
Spend some time on Valentine’s Day showing yourself some love. Whether your single or in a relationship, this experience is designed to treat you to something special. It’s easy to focus on other people today, but we can’t offer our best selves to the world if we don’t take the time to love ourselves first. This guided virtual experience will help you relax, tune-in to your internal heart desires, and create a valentine experience for yourself.

Knit-a-thon session – if we are allowed to have people in the building up to 14, or online via zoom for initial instructions. Established ‘Orange safe’ groups can form at home, or individuals welcome. The aim is to help knit more poppies for the Remembrance Day ‘banner/blanket’ for 2021.
