Happy New Year Everyone! It’s so wonderful to see the days getting longer already – and we really haven’t really had a cold snap….yet!
Although some folks just concentrate on staying warm, hoping there isn’t any more shovelling to be done – the Community Club still has plenty going on around here.
I’m delighted to report that the New Year’s Bash was a sell out! Not only did the club make a few dollars, but I do believe that everyone had a great time! Dj Tracy had folks up on the dance floor all night; what a wonderful job she did. Thanks to everyone for all their work on the fabulous decorations and centre pieces, the delicious snacks, great donated door prizes, whether you were tending bar, selling tickets, or mopping up – thank-you. It takes a committed team to put together an event like this, and what a great way for the community to pull together. A special thanks to Craig and Oliva as the organizers – well done!
Drop in lunch, crafts, and cards continue on Wednesdays – Everyone is welcome! Kick the winter blues and join your neighbours for a bowl of soup and a game of cards!
The renovations on Cleme’s Hall will be full steam ahead now. The first job is the furnace; we will have a much more energy efficient heating system. Next the doors will be replaced and the electrical system will be overhauled – very exciting improvements and I haven’t even mentioned the stage!
