Our Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors’ meeting on Jan. 20 was held a bit late as many of our members were attending the Citizen of the Year luncheon in Cache Creek to honour member Ida Makaro and Brian Bennewith.
Business was conducted by president Dorothy Maksymiw and the meeting ran smoothly. Thanks was given to the Wander Inn for a lovely Christmas dinner back in December that was enjoyed by all. The music by the gals from Spences Bridge was very enjoyable and we all had our toes tapping to it.
Four letters were read – one from Variety Club that asked us to help out with donations. We always do some donations, but if anyone wants to help out with a few dollars, it will be sent along with ours.
Barb Shaw, our kitchen lady, asked that anyone putting cups in the dish washer to rinse them first as our health inspector has said we must. Barb also thanked Glenys for her help in the kitchen while she was away.
Most of our projects are going nicely: Bridge is always full up; Bingo is a relaxed afternoon; Carpet Bowling has a lot of the members laughing and trying to get as close to that little white ball as possible – sometimes very hard to do; Sunshine cards were sent out to 11 members. Hope you are all better and feeling like a game of cards again.
Thompson Manor has gotten a grant to clean up the back parking lot as well as some painting inside.
