Loving Older generation Valuing Every opportunity to serve
This lively group of seniors meet once a month for a pot-luck luncheon and devotional. Aside from this gathering they are actively engaged in efforts throughout the local community and the goings on at Tintern.
The Tintern Sew-and-Sews is an active group of seniors who get together on Tuesday mornings at the building to make quilts, scarves, mittens, hats, and other similar items.
These quilts are given out to those in need; people undergoing chemotherapy, recovering from surgeries, or those who simply need a warm blanket. In this way the members of the Sew-and-Sews acts out Jesus' words from Matthew 25:36 - "I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me."
The Niagara Region Public Health puts on a weekly exercise program for those 55 and older. This program is designed to help improve and maintain strength, joint flexibility, balance, and help prevent age-related muscle loss.
