Older and Bolder

Older and Bolder is a monthly drop-in discussion group for older (50+) LBTQ2+ women. The group had been meeting at The Good Companions but is now meeting on Zoom. This is an opportunity to connect, share life experiences and discuss the joys and challenges of this stage of life. It is facilitated by Andrea Madan, Cathy Collett and Donna Munro, older lesbians and longtime members of OSPN.

For more information, contact Amanda Kristalovich at AKristalovich@thegoodcompanions.ca.

Thanks to the City of Ottawa, New Horizons and United Way for funding that makes our online programming events possible.

Baby Zoomers Coffee Club

Take a break with hosts George Hartsgrove and Lyse Cloutier and have a sip of coffee (or tea) with your 2SLGBTQ+ friends to chat about topics of interest to you and learn more about resources near you and other on-line programs offered by OSPN. We are meeting online bi-weekly for the summer months and hope to see you take part. All 50+ queer seniors welcome! Enter the Zoom chat room at the link in the event description above 5-10 minutes before we start.

Happy New Year, OSPN,

Despite varying circumstances, I hope that you were able to find some peace and joy over the holiday season. I really enjoyed seeing many of you at the holiday party at The Good Companions in December. Food, music and good company was a great way to end the year.

I’d like to let you know that The Good Companions is closed for in-person programming for the month of January 2022. This means that there will be no programming on Saturdays for LGBTQ2+ Seniors this January. I’m optimistic that we will be able to continue in February or March with the programming. I will keep you updated through this newsletter and Facebook about when programming is happening and how to register.

I know this is a disappointing and frustrating time for many. Please feel free to reach out to me if you’d like to talk to someone, if you’d like to get some information about programs and services that you can connect with, or if you’re interested in volunteering once The Good Companions is open again for in-person programs.

I hope to see you soon!

Take care,
Amanda Kristalovich – AKristalovich@thegoodcompanions.ca
