Happy New Year to all our members and members to be! You are welcome to come out and enjoy our pastimes of bridge, carpet bowling, bingo and crafts. Come out and get more information on our activities.
Sandy Williams was the guest speaker this month at the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association meeting on Jan. 16. She is our advocate for senior’s needs. We are among 68 sites in BC to take advantage of this service. Her office is at 405 Railway Ave. so if you want to volunteer or need help getting medical appointments or grocery shopping, you can visit her there or phone her at 250-453-9911. This is a three year trial program, so please use it. Some of the services are light housekeeping, snow shovelling and companionship.
Our monthly meeting carried on with Pat Kirby in the chair. All reports were read and passed. Thanks was given to the Teshima sisters for the door prizes at our Christmas dinner.
Thanks also given to Safety Mart and our local People Drug Store for door prizes and permission to sell tickets inside the store.
Our grant from last year has bought us some new chairs and a love eat for our craft room. Pat Kirby has been the push behind this so we all say thank you for your work and help to get these new chairs.
Dates to remember are: Wed., March 12 Clinton Daffodil Tea; Sat., Apr. 26 our Bazaar and Tea; and every Saturday our bingos.
Thank you to Nola for her offer to help Barb in the kitchen for our daily refreshments.
Jokes were read by Donna and Pat.
Birthdays for January: Marge Lapointe and Merry Teshima.
The meeting was adjourned and some new members were instructed in some new card games. We had a lot of laughs and good fun.
