A Movie at the Emagine Movie Theater in White Bear Lake / Raya and the Last Dragon | Saturday, April 10, 2021 2:00 PM-4:30 PM

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."
 
Arrival time will be 2:00pm. It's important to not arrive before 2:00.  If you arrive before 2:00, please stay in your vehicle until 2:00.  THX!  Showtime will be 2:30pm.
 
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.

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

Let's Talk! | Friday, March 19, 2021 7:00 PM-8:00 PM

Let's Talk! is back due to requests from members. This month we are going to talk about the death of a parent. A member would like to share her personal experience, what she has learned, and her resilience.  We have many members who have also had this very sad experience.  You can listen and learn, share if you would like, or be there for support.
 
Let's talk! Share. Care.

Read the "info" as there is new information there. Thursday evening 3/18 Puzzles, Crafts, and Chatting | Thursday, March 18, 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.
 
We love it that our members like to zoom, but too many members on one zoom chat isn't always a good combination. 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
