From the Centre – Join the Seniors and bring ideas

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

Here we are at the beginning of September. So, Ladies and Gentlemen, are you all revving up your engines  to be ready to go when the Seniors Centre opens up on Tuesday Sept. 8 at 12.30pm for Carpet Bowling?  Card games will start up after bowling at about 2pm. Bingo starts up again on Saturday, Sept. 12.

On Sunday, Sept. 13 you can visit our table at the Fall Fair. Have you any ideas for different avenues you would like to see us pursuing? If so, come and see us and we’ll see what can be done – we are open to suggestion!  For a toonie you can have an afternoon with friends old and new, and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a tasty bite or two. Where else could you find such a good deal?

Some of our members recently attended the Seniors’ Games in North Vancouver. I have not been able to get any results yet – my fault! – but i am sure they were  all good competitors and came home with medals and, more importantly, good memories.

We also look forward to seeing members old and new at our business meeting on Thursday, Sept. 17.  At noon we have a potluck lunch and then the business meeting starts at 1pm. After the meeting we have a refreshment break for tea or coffee and goodies, then we go on to whatever you would like to do. There may be some surprises in store, so do come and find out what they  are. You can be sure of a warm welcome, so come and bring your ideas with you!
