LIFE Club Touring Art GalleryMeet new members, learn and discover together.
 
Are you looking for other people with similar interests to your own? Or do you want to learn something new in a social setting? LIFE has a variety of clubs that meet on campus monthly throughout the year and are open to all members for no charge or for a nominal annual fee. 

 

The Blue Zone Club NEW

This new club is based on the Blue Zones that were discovered by Dan Buettner and the National Geographic over a decade ago, but practiced for hundreds of years. It has been discovered that these Blue Zones have the highest rate for longevity and healthy living in the world. We will be hosting our Blue Zone Information Session where we will discuss diets, recipes that are Mediterranean based, meditations, activities (walks) and support which will anchor our social interest within the group. Our future meetings, along with assessing the numbers of meetings, will be determined at this session with your input and guidance. Together we will outline topics of discussion and the goals of this club.You must be a LIFE member to attend.

Living Life and Loving It! Club

The Club normally meets the fourth Wednesday of the month and is meant for people whose aim is to love the life that they live. As we all know, challenges do come up and they are usually, if not always, opportunities for growth and/or change for the better. In the club we will focus on enjoying life and yet when challenges do come up transform them into opportunities. This club is recommended for people who took the course 'Live Life! Love Life!' and for members who are considering taking the course. You must be a LIFE member to attend.

Wednesday, Sept. 25, Oct. 23, and Nov. 27

Lunch Club

The Lunch Club normally meets the fourth Thursday of the month, except July and August, and December when we join LIFE for its winter holiday lunch. Exact dates are confirmed at the beginning of each month. Lunch may be at an ethnic restaurant or one that is a neighbourhood favourite or unique in some other way. Members recommend restaurants that are reasonably priced and accessible via TTC and share in the responsibility of organizing lunches. All members are sent notices of up-coming lunches beforehand and must reply if they plan to attend. Most restaurants are small and space is limited so reservations are necessary. You must be a LIFE member to attend.
