From the Centre – Seniors relax over summer break

Monthly news from the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association.

The Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association had a fine meeting on May 15 with Minutes read by Donna Tetrault and meeting conducted by Pat Kirby.

Some discussion on our installation of the chair lift. May have to wait for some more confirmation from the Regional District.

Our tea and bazaar was a fine success and our members would like to thank all for attending and enjoying. Thank you Nola for taking over the kitchen job without too much preparation before hand.

All reports were read and most are in very good shape. Six sunshine cards sent and one get well.

Elections of Pat Kirby, treasurer, and Muriel Scallon, 1st vice president. Sworn in by Donna. Financial report by Pat Kirby, passed by Joyce Freeman.

Our Senior Centre will close for the summer break from June 27 to Sept. 8. Bingo will close June 14 to Sept. 13; Bridge will close May 26 to Sept. 8; Bowlers will choose a date for their wind up party day.

Jokes read by Donna, and then the birthdays were read. Birthdays for May: Carylon Elliot, Arlene Lebedoff, Joy Murrell, John Ranta, Orval Truman and Muriel Scallon.

Bus trip to Anglemont is June 22. Must sign up soon as seats are filling fast.
