Here we are in the middle of summer and it has been a scorcher! Our Pole Walking program is in full swing and the weather, while hot, hasn’t stopped anyone from enjoying time together while getting some exercise. The same can be said for our weekly knitter/crochet group – lots of chatting, finger exercise and even a birthday party thrown in for good measure!

We are busy finalizing dates for the fall programs and newsletter – keep watch for it! You can receive the newsletter either in print from through Canada Post, by email as well as by signing up for it on our website.

Back by popular demand, will be another Field Trip to the St. Lawrence Market followed by lunch at The Old Spaghetti Factory. We did this in July and it was a HUGE success! Mark the date now: October 25, 2019. Below pictures of the group at the Dog Fountain Berczy Park 35 Wellington Street East. And the second picture is of the group having lunch at The Old Spaghetti Factory 54 The Esplanade.

Every month, we spotlight one employee of Mosaic for the wonderful work that they do. This month, we honour one of our front-line RPN/Personal Support Workers for her level of professionalism with our clients and our Client Services Team. Read more about Angelique in the ‘Spotlight On’ section.

World Wide “Knit in Public Day"

This was our 2nd annual World Wide Knit in Public Day and we had about 20 attendees come to The Shops on Steeles and 404. We enjoyed each others company and there was a bit of ‘show and tell’ with different projects people are working on! Look at the cheeky purse with the beaver and water bottle holder and the afghan which used bits of different colour yarns. Beautiful.

We also received a donation of many Twiddlemuffs from the Retired Teachers Association of Scarborough which was a nice surprise. These will be distributed in the fall as the weather gets chillier.

Snapd newspaper attended and took a picture of a few of the attendees which was featured in the July print Snapd paper featured below. Dina Campeis of Mosaic did a great job in organizing this event for the community!

Mosaic in Action in the Community

Summers at Mosaic are, thankfully, a slower time for conferences and events, but, that said, we are out in the community every week.

Every Thursday and Friday, the Mosaic Pole Walkers take to the streets. You can find us in and around Sunnybrook Park Mid-town area and walking around Simonston Park in Markham.

Chair Yoga Series

Mosaic is lucky enough to partner with Better Living to provide a Chair Yoga Series at our mid-Toronto Community Resource Centre on the first Wednesday of May, June and July. The entire series was very well received and we will be adding more of these programs to our Fall Newsletter. Better Living has graciously organized the facilitator for this free program they are offering at Mosaic Toronto office starting September 4th, October 2nd, November 6th and December 4th, 2019. If you are interested please contact our main number to register.

At The Shops on Steeles and 404, we will have a 3-part chair yoga series, held in Centre Court the 3rd Friday of September, October and November and will be facilitated by Joanne Picot. The first dates will be Friday September 20th. There is a $5.00 fee per class. Please register as space is limited. Healthy snacks will be provided.

Movies & Popcorn

A few months ago at the Community Resource Centre at the Shops on Steeles and 404, we started to show a movie. Being very democratic, a few movies are available, and the group agrees which to watch. This is a great opportunity for those who like to watch movies in a smaller space (for free!) and want to meet new people at the same time. So far, we’ve watched Mary Poppins and Inception. Two very different movies!

Come and join us – we’d love to meet you. RSVP is required as space is limited.
