March 12, 2013 – The last few weeks of winter at KEYS were full of sunshine and smiles. Under Jenny’s leadership and Victoria’s assistance the weeks flew by with fitness, good food, friendship and work placements in the Junction business community.
KEYS’ Workshop for Workplace Success led by Victoria and Amanda was instructive and fun. Lots of role playing and games helped bring to life the helpful hints for workplace success created for our Community Contributors.
Our Community Contributors were honoured to receive from the Provincial Council of Exceptional Children, the CEC 2012 Business award. KEYS prepared a delicious feast and songfest for the award presenters at our March Community Lunch.
Fitness is a regular part of KEYS and we were thrilled to add a new KEYS’ group membership at the West End Y. We kicked it off with a splash doing aquafit and swimming. Regular visits to the Y are now part of our monthly schedule.
At Lunch’n Learn, “Celebrity Chefs” have been visiting us regularly to teach us new recipes. Chefs Joanna, Chris, and Lupé have joined Chef Monica to share with KEYS’ safe food handling and tasty lunches made from wholesome ingredients.
The highlight of our Eating Out day this month was going to the restaurant where Lauren works. She greeted her KEYS’s friends and even took a small break from her duties to join them at lunch!
During Art with Alex, KEYS has been exploring many media including making masks for self expression.
With the days getting warmer, KEYS now looks forward to a Spring filled with new learning, working and recreational experiences ….stay tuned!
