From the Centre – Christmas Tea was a happy success

The monthly news from the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association.

Well, our big fund raiser for the year has come and gone, and from the traffic around the bake table and Kathy’s “Aladdin’s Cave” of crafts, we have done pretty well.

Thank you once again to all our donors, the buyers and everyone who came and enjoyed a very tasty snack and a chat with friends in a pleasant gathering place.

Especially happy with the day, of course, were the winners of the various prize draws! The mouth-watering chocolate cake from​ the bake table was won by Dorothy Colebank, while the heater went to Daphne Negrin. The two door prizes were drawn by Mavis Putman and Louise Burroughs who will no doubt enjoy them in this cold weather. Tickets for the big draw have been on sale for some time, and out of all the buyers, Lady Luck smiled on Lil Munro who won the basket and box of goodies; Sylvia Strathearn who won 2nd prize and Lorene Martin, who won 3rd prize.

Thank you to the members who worked behind the scenes, organizing and working in the kitchen and at the setting up. We appreciate very much, too, all the generous patrons of our Christmas Bazaar – you make all the hard work worthwhile!

Dates to remember: Dec. 11, 11.30am at the Legion Hall for Christmas Lunch; Dec. 15 is the last day the Centre will be open in 2014;  Jan. 5 is first opening for Bridge in the New Year, 2015 and on Jan. 6 the Centre is open for Carpet Bowling and Cards.

Have a Merry Christmas, everyone, and enjoy all the festivities over Christmas and the New Year.  God bless us, everyone!
