COVID Coping | Tuesday, April 13, 2021 7:00 PM-8:30 PM

Just simply join in on the ZOOM event and you'll be greeted with a hearty "Hi" from fellow Bridging Hearts members, and that's about all there is to it!

Thursday evening 4/15 Puzzles, Crafts, and Chatting / USING BREAKOUT ROOMS AS NEEDED | Thursday, April 15, 2021 7:00 PM-9:00 PM

This is for you.  We recently signed up 13 new people and 11 were between 19 and 23.
 
 Once we know who will be attending we will have a little profile trivia. We would love to get to know you!!!! Please join us.
 
Please Note: This event will be for our members between 19 and 30.

Coffee Chat | Thursday, April 22, 2021 7:00 PM-8:00 PM

Our coffee club members have been requesting a get-together.  Let's have a Zoom Coffee Chat for everyone interested.  We will talk about your favorite coffees whether iced or hot or possibly other beverages. Show us your favorite mug. Bring the name of a favorite coffee place to the meeting.
 
Let's chat while having a cup of coffee, tea, or another beverage. 
 
Maybe we can actually meet at a coffee place soon!

DULUTH - RENT A MOVIE THEATRE (date and movie needs to be confirmed yet), | Friday, April 23, 2021 6:30 PM-9:00 PM

Bridging Hearts is renting an entire movie theatre!  Grab your seat and corn and enjoy a night out with your Bridging Hearts friends!
Movie to be decided closer to the date, as they can't tell us what will be playing at this time.  We'll try to please everyone and pick a fun movie.  It might not be your first choice, but everyone will have a good time!

 
Arrival time 6:30pm. 
 
The cost will be less that $10, and concessions will be open for you to buy any treats you might like.

Virtual Game Night: BINGO!! 4/25/2021 | Sunday, April 25, 2021 7:00 PM-8:00 PM






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 BINGO. 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.
 
There will be time to chit chat between games. That's what makes this zoom more fun! 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 BINGO and am happy you're going to join in on the fun!!!! Carol

We will have a movie theater all to ourselves. We're seeing "Raya and The Last Dragon"! It has GREAT reviews on "Rotten Tomatoes" and one reviewer says, "The message is that you have to put aside differences and learn to trust and find common ground."

The cost will be $9.00,payable to Bridging Hearts. Don't pay the theater.  Bridging Hearts has to pay for everyone, and you will be paying Carol or Denise.  Concessions will be open for you to buy any treats you might like, so you'll have to bring extra money for this if you would like something.
 
WE ARE RESTRICTED TO 20 MEMBERS, SO RSVP AS SOON AS YOU KNOW YOU CAN GO! 
 
This theater is right off 35E, near White Bear Lake (the county road J exit.)  There is a hamburger restaurant (Lucy's Burgers) and an Asian Restaurant (Orchid Restaurant) that is in the same parking lot as the movie theater.
 
There is no plan to eat anywhere as a group.  These restaurant suggestions are for you if you want to arrive early and eat there before the movie, or afterward.

Thursday evening 3/25 Puzzles, Crafts, and Chatting / USING BREAKOUT ROOMS | Thursday, March 25, 2021 7:00 PM-9:00 PM








If you enjoy puzzles or crafts, or simply chatting with friends, this is the event for you!  We hope you'll join in!  Just simply join in on the ZOOM event and you'll be greeted with a hearty "Hi" from fellow Bridging Hearts members, and that's about all there is to it!
 
At approximately 7:15, we will begin using "breakout rooms"  You will be assigned a small group to chat with, and we'll start with 15 minutes or so.  Others will be in other "breakout rooms", chatting as well.  At the end of around15 minutes, you will all gather back to the main room, and you will be put into new breakout rooms, with some new people. 
 
From experience, it just doesn't work to have even 12 people (or more) chatting on zoom.  When we were at Centennial Lakes Park, we didn't all stay in 1 bunch of 18 people.  We naturally broke into small groups and walked around, and we naturally broke off from some people to go and talk to others.  That's what these breakout rooms will help us do.
 
We'll work through all of the technical difficulties together, and hopefully have a fun unique experience. 
 
I do not have to limit the amount of members that can attend this event!  I also will not have to have a waiting room.  A BH member or I will manage the breakout rooms, and you will simply chat as usual.
 
You will automatically come back to the main room (from the breakout room) every 15 minutes or so, with the last 15 minutes being in the main room.
 
We love it that our members like to zoom, but too many members on one zoom chat isn't always a good combination. Using breakout rooms has worked several times now, so we'll keep using them. ~Carol

This worked just great on 3/11, so we're doing it again.  I will not be managing the breakout rooms, as I will be out of town.  Please be patient with who does manage the breakout rooms.  We're all learning!!  ~Carol

Read the "info" as there is new information there. Tuesday evening 3/16 Puzzles, Crafts, and Chatting | Tuesday, March 16, 2021 7:00 PM-9:00 PM




If you enjoy puzzles or crafts, or simply chatting with friends, this is the event for you!  We hope you'll join in!  Just simply join in on the ZOOM event and you'll be greeted with a hearty "Hi" from fellow Bridging Hearts members, and that's about all there is to it!
 
At approximately 7:15, we will begin using "breakout rooms"  You will be assigned a small group to chat with, and we'll start with 15 minutes or so.  Others will be in other "breakout rooms", chatting as well.  At the end of around15 minutes, you will all gather back to the main room, and you will be put into new breakout rooms, with some new people. 
 
From experience, it just doesn't work to have even 12 people (or more) chatting on zoom.  When we were at Centennial Lakes Park this weekend, we didn't all stay in 1 bunch of 18 people.  We naturally broke into small groups and walked around, and we naturally broke off from some people to go and talk to others.  That's what these breakout rooms will help us do.
 
We'll work through all of the technical difficulties together, and hopefully have a fun unique experience. 
 
I do not have to limit the amount of members that can attend this event!  I also will not have to have a waiting room.  What I will do is have a BH member manage the breakout rooms, and you will simply chat as usual.  Maybe the last 15 minutes of the zoom (8:45pm) you can all be together and try to share how it went. 
 
You will automatically come back to the main room (from the breakout room) every 15 minutes or so, with the last 15 minutes being in the main room.

I'm rather inexperienced with zoom and all of its technical possibilities, so I will have to beg for forgiveness in advance if things don't run perfectly smoothly.  We'll work through it together, and hopefully have a fun unique experience. 
 
I do not have to limit the amount of members that can attend this event!  I also will not have to have a waiting room.  What I will do is manage the breakout rooms, and you will simply chat as usual.  Maybe the last 15 minutes of the zoom (8:45pm) we can all be together and try to share how it went. 
 
Let me know if you have any questions.  If I do a breakout room every 15 minutes, there is a chance you will be on 7 different breakout rooms during the evening, with the last 15 minutes being in the main room.
 
Cross your fingers that this is fun and works!!!!  We love it that our members like to zoom, but too many members on one zoom chat isn't always a good combination.

Centennial Lakes - PLEASE NOTE CHANGE | Saturday, March 6, 2021 5:00 PM-7:00 PM

IN-PERSON EVENT!!!!!!!
 
We will now be offering a monthly in-person event until/unless Minnesota changes restrictions.  We will follow guidelines. Remember your mask!  
 
Due to the very nice weather and possibly melting lake, we will be walking around the lake rather than skating or using a kicksled.  Centennial Lakes Park is still magical at night.  
 
With the increase in numbers of members participating and the nice weather, we are going to change our dinner plans.  We will no longer be meeting at Q.Cumbers.  We will be meeting in front of Potbelly's at 5:00.  You will have choices for takeout from either Potbelly's, Leeann Chin, or 5 Guys. You can also pack your own meal if you prefer.   We will eat outside down by the lake.  There will be someone to direct you to the eating spot.  We love Q. Cumbers!  We WILL eat there again when we all feel safer eating indoors with a larger group.
 
We will still meet up with those not eating at 6:00 in front of the pavilion.
 
Hope to see a few friendly faces!  Please dress for the weather.  Even though it will be much warmer, it will still cool off in the evening.

Discussion - The Social Dilemma | Friday, March 5, 2021 7:00 PM-8:00 PM

We had a glitch watching "The Social Dilemma" together last Friday night.  Netflix may have a filter when trying to share through Zoom.  Carly M. suggested everyone watch on their own this week and we discuss together again.  We are doing it!
 
We enjoyed a rousing discussion anyway covering current events including Lady Gaga's Dogs, the storms and outages in Texas, the minimum wage and raising to $15/hour, and many other topics.  We enjoyed a wonderful evening of discussion.
 
If you can watch before the discussion, please do.  If you would like to hear the discussion, you are welcome to join us!

Virtual Game Night: BINGO!! 2/28/2021 | Sunday, February 28, 2021 7:00 PM-8:00 PM



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 BINGO. 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.
 
There will be time to chit chat between games. That's what makes this zoom more fun! 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 BINGO and am happy you're going to join in on the fun!!!! Carol

COVID Coping | Tuesday, February 9, 2021 7:00 PM-8:30 PM

This month we are talking about communication.  What’s is “good “ communication? When should you say something and when should you be quiet about something?  Should you always tell the “whole truth” to someone?  And what does all the body language mean?  Be prepared to share stories about situations you have had when communication went well and times when it did not go well.

Virtual Game Night: BINGO!! 1/31/2021 | Sunday, January 31, 2021 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. 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.
 
There will be time to chit chat between games. That's what makes this zoom more fun! 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

Scavenger Hunt with a Twist | Saturday, January 16, 2021 3:00 PM-4:00 PM

Want something to do on a cold afternoon? A scavenger hunt! 
 
This will be a little different.  You will check the event page 30 minutes before it starts (2:30) and a list of items will be posted.   That gives everyone a 1/2 hour to hunt around their homes & have everything ready to go when we all sign in to Zoom.  This gives us more time for everyone to show their found items.
 
Join the Colasanti family (Dom) for this fun event.  Thanks Colasantis!
