EVENTS

Bridging Hearts offers an organized event once a month for a more personal interaction. Members also plan and host events for their Bridging Hearts friends.

Upcoming Events

Hayride and Bonfire | Saturday, December 5, 2020 3:30 PM-5:00 PM

PLEASE NOTE:   POSTPONED!!!!!
 

In order to keep our community safe, we are postponing our hayride. We will reschedule it when it is safe to do so. This decision was made by our Board of Directors who oversee Bridging Hearts. If you have seen the news lately, cases in Minnesota are surging.  Cases are at record levels. Some of you have already had a mild case of Covid and are probably thinking it wasn’t that bad.  However, we need to think of your parents and grandparents too.  Also, no one knows how one will be affected by Covid.
We will roll out some fun and different Zoom events soon. Stay tuned!
Until this surge comes under control, we will not be having in-person events.  Our website will become even more important.  Check out all the fun features.  This is your community!
Stay safe and be well.

 
 

COVID Coping | Tuesday, December 8, 2020 7:00 PM-8:30 PM

Turkey Tales | Thursday, November 26, 2020 7:00 PM-9:00 PM


We're done eating our turkey tails, now it's time for some Turkey Tales! The holidays are meant to celebrate with friends and family. If you would like to check in with your Bridging Hearts family, here's an event to find out how everyone's day has been.
 
This event is just about talking, but nobody will mind if you work on a puzzle or knit, or take a walk while chatting.
 
Come when you can, and stay as long as you like.
 
Honestly, I don't know if there will be a lot of people able to join, but by 7pm, if you're up from your tryptophan nap (that's the nutrient in Turkey that makes you sleepy), then jump on and see if anyone else is checking in!
 
Many of you love to gab (I've heard you!!!!!) so whether you're a talker or would just like to listen in, here's an event for everyone!

Virtual Game Night: BINGO!! | Sunday, November 22, 2020 7:00 PM-8:00 PM



B-ridg-INGO....Just regular BINGO!
 
There will be prizes for the winners. I have a stash of "good stuff" and for every win, you will get a "winning ticket". You can go to "Photos" at the top of the BH page, and click on "BINGO Prizes" and you can pick a prize out. Let me know what you pick so I can set it aside for you.  I'll bring prizes to in-person events. Your ticket will not expire.
 
I'm looking forward to calling B-ridg-INGO on Sunday night. Please just play one card per game, so that we can keep it moving quickly. There will be at least 4 games, and the 4th game will be coverall.
 
Your cards can be electronic (on your phone or tablet) or from a game you may have at home. You can always print a bingo card too. If you need a card emailed to you, let me know and I have some in PDF form, I can email it to you for you to print.
 
I'll mute EVERYONE at the beginning of each game. Feel free to unmute yourselves if you need to say something, but this helps others to hear the numbers being called. It has worked pretty good this way! I love B-ridg-INGO (just regular BINGO!!) and am happy you're going to join in on the fun!!!! Carol

As usual, bring a mask please and help keep BH a covid free event!  Masks are required and persons will be spaced on hay rides.

Park Hike & Picnic | Thursday, October 8, 2020 3:00 PM-6:00 PM

**NOTE: City Park Rules only allow for groups of 25 so we need to cap this at 25. Only RSVP with Yes if you are sure you can be there.**
 
We'll be going to Afton State Park for a hike and gathering. Please bring a mask, a water bottle (for sure!) and dinner (we'll have enough time to eat).
 

There will be some uneven grassy terrain, so sturdy shoes or boots are recommended.  Tennis shoes work too!  There is a lovely path along the river that is quite even and wide, and we'll walk along the river there for sure.  If members want to do a bit more exploring, they are welcome to do that. 
 
We'll have a scavenger list of things to look for on our walk.  You're welcome to take a picture (and then post on the BH site), or simply check it off your list.  There is no contest, so share with fellow members when you "see" or "hear" what's on the list!
 
Being outside in nature, seeing all the park has to offer will be a great way to spend an afternoon in October.
“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.” John Muir
 

Cost: A vehicle permit will be needed if parking.  One day permit per car is $7.  An annual permit is $35.
