Wednesday Movie – I, Daniel Blake


Wednesday, November 22, 7:00 (100 min., R)

After a heart attack, Daniel Blake is denied government assistance even though his doctor has warned that he still needs time for recovery or will be at risk of developing a life-threatening condition. Daniel appeals to the courts, but is forced to look for work. He meets a struggling single mother of two who faces similar problems as she seeks assistance to feed her family. Together they work to try and navigate a cold and unforgiving system.

Explore Lifelong Learning – Grandmothers for Grandmothers


Tuesday, November 21, 7:00

Presented by Bea Fisher

Grandmothers in sub-saharan Africa are unsung heroes, who at their late stage of life take on the job of raising their grandchildren who’ve been orphaned by HIV/AIDS.

A team of our members will share our stories and some of those of our sister Grannies in Africa. It will be an interactive presentation with discussion, video presentation and some of the voices of our group here in Prince Albert, to make you aware of who we are, what we do, the how and why, and the level of involvement volunteer members can expect to have.

Bea Fisher, Chair, and a team of representatives from our group will make the presentation.

Everyone welcome!
