Isobel McGrath serves tea at last year’s annual Spring Bazaar in the Ashcroft Senior’s Centre.

From the Centre – Activity picks up at the Seniors’ Centre

Muriel Scallon's monthly column about the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association.

We hope everyone has had a very restful summer and are happy to get back to the Seniors’ Centre with plans for the new year.

You may have heard that Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association president Pat Kirby has been in medical care all summer. She is coming along fine, but still needs more rest. The association’s executive has been taking care of the group’s business since June, but there is a lot to take care of. It is hoped that more members will offer to help with some of the obs of keeping the Centre going forward.

The Centre will open again on Sept. 8 for the Bridge group, and then on the 9th for Carpet Bowling. Hope to see you all out for this.

The Seniors’ Association will have a table at the Fall Fair (Sept. 14). Hope to talk to you all at that time.

Summer was very eventful with hospital visits, for my husband Kevin, and Pat Kirby, both in Kamloops hospital. Kevin his home now and feeling great with his new pacemaker to keep his heart going both day and night..

We are looking forward to the 2014 Seniors Games in Langley from Sept. 9-14.

See you all at the Centre next week. Please come out and support both it and your association.

Muriel Scallon
