London is a top travel destination.  We will visit many of London's highlights through a shared screen and also personal photos of some out of the way places off the tourist track.
 
Please join us for an evening across the pond. Fascinators (small, fancy hats) optional.

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!

New Year's Eve Party - Virtually!! | Thursday, December 31, 2020 9:00 PM - Friday, January 1, 2021 12:30 AM

Happy New Year! 
 
We're giving 2020 the boot, and bringing 2021 in with a bang!  2020 wasn't all bad.... but let's face it, our lives were sure turned upside down and so many of us had well laid plans change.  Nerves were frazzled and we all were a bit scared at what living through a pandemic means.  We're all so proud of you for your resiliency and your ability to adapt.  Let's hope this is the beginning of the end of Covid-19, and we can meet again in person early in 2021.  Time will tell!!
 
Speaking of time, Father Time marches forward, and we would like to give you the opportunity to share New Years Eve with friends.
 
There will be no games or trivia. No singalongs or fireworks. Just friends zooming together, watching on TV the passage from 2020 to 2021.
 
If you have your TV volume on, please mute your zoom.
If you mute your TV, you can unmute and chat - maybe during commercials.
 
Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest begins live at 9:00 p.m. on Dec. 31. ABC  ~  I'm sure there are other specials going on too.
 
The event is slated to start at 9:00pm, but if you are going to zoom this event, maybe in the comments you can note when you plan on jumping on. 
 
Plan on providing your own glass/mug to CHEER in the new year, maybe hot chocolate, or cider, maybe some ginger-ale or coconut water.... or maybe some warm milk; LOL  It will be so awesome to be surrounded by friends as you ring in 2021
 
Happy New Year!

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!

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

DULUTH - RU-RIDGE CORN MAZE | Friday, October 23, 2020 4:00 PM-7:00 PM

We recently learned of Ru-Ridge and thought it would be a fun Fall event, so we switched it up!  Instead of the Harvest Costume Party, we will all meet at Ru-Ridge Corn Maze for an early evening of fun!  There is an 8 acre straw bale maze to get you trying to find your way out!  A Ninja Course is available for all you men and women of valor!  For more adventure, we would like our group to hop on a hay ride,  try a scavenger hunt, as well as, take a fun pumpkin photo op!  Entry fee is $7 and hay ride is an extra fee.  
 
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.
 
**Dress for winter, as you can always peel off layers. Because we will be outside for 3 hours, you may want to bring hat and gloves just in case.  Food may be available for purchase or you can bring your own.  More details coming soon.
