Seniors return from Games victorious

Three gold and one bronze medal for Ashcroft seniors.

Looks like the summer is saying “goodbye” for this year. What a short time of sunshine. I hope the Fall is better.

Of the five people from our area who competed at the Seniors Games (Aug. 16-20) in Castlegar, Trail and Nelson, four of us brought home medals: Isabel McGrath and Linda Holland won Gold in Bridge, Kevin Scallon won a Gold in Horseshoes and Muriel Scallon won Bronze, also in Horseshoes. We had lots of fun at the Games, and it’s too bad more don’t get involved. Next year’s Games will be held in Burnaby.

The Seniors Centre will re-open again after the Summer on Tues., Sept. 6. Bingo resumes on Sept. 10 and Bridge gets underway on Sept. 12. Hope to see you all then and hear about all the fun things that have done this summer.

Anyone who would like to try calling for Bingos can phone Pat Kirby. We would love you to death for this.

The first meeting day for the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association is Sept. 15 at 1 pm. Please come out and bring a friend who wants to join our group.
