Join a LIFE Club
Meet 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
This new club is based on the Blue Zones, areas of higher than typical concentration of centenarians( people over 100 years old), discovered by Dan Buettner and the National Geographic over a decade ago. These areas have nothing in common geographically, being as far apart as Costa Rica and Japan. However, there are common life habits, many practiced for hundreds of years, that seem to relate to the unusual concentration of healthy older people. We will try to research ways to adopt these habits, interacting through Zoom meetings until actual meetings will again be feasible.
Classic Novel Book Club
Let’s revisit and rediscover the great works of fiction that have stood the test of time. Their themes are universal, their characters memorable, their scope large, and their insight profound. Join us as we meet - usually on the of every month - to savour some literary classics. to be confirmed
Climate Action Club
The Climate Action Club is for LIFE members who are eager to join forces to learn more about climate change and its effects, to discuss the issues and potential solutions and to act together to support organizations in the climate change movement. Please join us if want to meet others who are passionate or if you simply want to learn more about climate change.

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.

Are you interested in photography? Do you want to be able to make better images? Our meetings will feature discussions of ideas and techniques, equipment, computer software, common problems, etc. In addition to professional photographers who speak to our club, we include sharing and constructive feedback for each other’s images, and sometimes group shoots or gallery visits. The club is aimed at those who already have some experience making photos, but LIFE members at any level of expertise are welcome. A schedule of topics will be chosen at the beginning of each term. You must be a 2020-2021 LIFE member to attend.

Virtual Coffee Break NEW!!
LIFE is pleased to announce the creation of this new club: a place where members can hang out for an hour or so on a regular basis, meet with friends, old and new, in small groups to discuss real issues facing us all during these challenging times. Even with COVID19 shelter-in-place restrictions scheduled to relax, the need for older adults to proceed cautiously when interacting physically continues and the Virtual Coffee Break provides the opportunity to be part of the larger LIFE community and just hang out.
Writer's Circle - new
If you don’t know what to do with the thoughts, ideas and opinions that swirl around in your head while you sit at home during the pandemic, consider joining the new Writers’ Circle.
This is a club that will meet twice a month via Zoom to do some impromptu writing and to share stories that you have previously prepared. Each participant will share a story no longer than 10 minutes in length when read aloud, be it fiction, memoir, essay or poetry. The rest of the circle will have the opportunity to discuss it and provide positive feedback.
It’s a great way to exercise your creativity and meet new people with interesting ideas to share. The club will run on the first and third Wednesday of each month starting at 10:00 a.m. and running for 2 hours. You must be a LIFE 2020-2021 member to attend.
Day: First and Third of each month
