From the Centre: Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors

Summer opening of the Seniors’ Centre was a success.

By Joyce West

September already, and time for us all to leave the fun of the lazy summer days behind!

Our experiment at the Seniors’ Centre of staying open over summer has proved quite successful. This can be seen from the number of completed jigsaw puzzles, and the number of people who have turned out for other activities. Bingo has also done well, with several new faces appearing along with our regular attendees. Keep coming, friends, and the prizes will grow!

We are now back to the regular routine of Monday (Bridge), Tuesday and Friday (Carpet Bowling followed by card games), and Saturday (Bingo). Having different activities in the same space requires many adjustments of the furniture. Our thanks to our younger friends, who manhandle and rearrange the furniture after the Bingo sessions: your energy is amazing!

Thank you also to those who generously supply us with the goodies which, along with coffee and tea, are free to all players. We love you!

Our members who work in the kitchen also deserve a pat on the back for their efforts on our behalf.

Summer is when our clean-up is done, and this requires the removal of all the tables and chairs so the floors can be properly attended to. This summer all the usual preparations were done, but we were unable to replace the furniture, as we are all getting older: surprise! We owe a debt of gratitude to the young men (from Home Hardware, I believe) for coming to our rescue and putting things back where they belong.

All these people are the ones who make our organization work, and if I have missed anyone out, I am sorry. We truly do appreciate your help, both behind the scenes and out where you are to be seen. Thank you!
