Heartwood is pleased to be partnering with Ptarmigan Music & Theatre Society, the Pender Islands Community Hall, and also the Health Centre – to bring you our first workshop of 2017 on Friday, January 13 (10:30 am to 1:30 pm). The Heartwood Happiness Hoedown will give you some tools to create a positive outlook to help kick off the new year, and teach you some fancy new (old) dance moves through an instructional square dance with live music. First at 10:30 am, Elizabeth Miles and Owen Goertz will offer some perspectives on sustaining happiness in challenging times. Then the Community Hall offers their Friday Gathering lunch (by donation). After lunch, the Heartwood Square Dancing workshop fee is $5 (12:30 to 1:30 pm). Come for the soup, stay for companionship, and help build community one smile at a time! See you there!!
