Activity Haven – Through our Members’ Eyes
Activity Haven is a recreation centre for older adults (50+) serving Peterborough and surrounding areas. Activity Haven’s goal is to help fulfill the recreational needs of our members by providing a wide variety of fun and interesting activities. Through intellectual, physical, creative and social engagement, we encourage our members to be active and involved, to develop friendships and to maintain an independent and healthy lifestyle.
A focus of the centre is to provide a friendly, healthy and caring environment for older adults, where we treat each other with honesty, courtesy and respect. We offer more than 80 programs, including both instructor-led classes and casual drop-in activities, as well as numerous special events throughout the year. There’s something for everyone at Activity Haven!
Last year, Activity Haven’s inaugural participation in the SPARK Photo Festival met with great success, and we are very pleased this year to be part of the 10th anniversary of the Festival. Our exhibit is titled: “Through Our Members’ Eyes”, and our objective is to showcase the “well-seasoned” photographic talents of several of our members. As an added challenge, we have asked our exhibitors to consider this year’s SPARK juried theme of ‘Water’ in some of their submissions. Our exhibitors range in age from their mid-60’s to late 80’s, and it has been wonderful to see the diversity and beauty of the images presented.
Participation in SPARK has been a great opportunity to bring our members together to share their common interests in photography. We expect that friendships will form which will last long after this year’s Photo Festival is over!
Kathy & Jim MacIntosh
