From the Centre – Christmas Tea and Bazaar well attended

The Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors' Association's annual Christmas Tea had the old Centre hopping.

The Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association held their last meeting before their Christmas Dinner at the Bears Claw (Dec. 12) on Nov. 21.

Pat Kirby was in the chair and held a good meeting. She got all the business done and then we had time to have a social with tea, coffee and goodies. Some played their favourite card games and chatted about their plans for the rest of the year.

Thanks was given to all the helpers at our Bazaar and Tea, who made it a success. Muriel Scallon would like to thank the many crafters who donated to our craft sale. Donna Tetrault made knitted slippers that were a big item. Carol Norris gave us three lawn ornaments with other items which sold well. Baby quilts from Binky and quilts, table mats, dresses, purses and sweaters from Muriel. Fran Helland donated fabric to make dresses, table mats and pillows. Kathy brought in quite a number of crafts such as kitchen mitts, towels and pot holders. She also made pot scrubbers for us. Thank you to all. I may have missed someone, but thank you again.

The Bake Table was filled with lovely goodies. The sandwiches were consumed in a rush so must have been tasty also.

Thanks to all for making this our best bazaar ever. Thanks to all our helpers who made it a very find day.

Muriel Scallon
