From the Centre – Take advantage of the activities offered

The monthly column of news and events from the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Centre.

Well, Summer has gone and Fall is following close behind. We have had such a glorious display of golds and russets, and now the leaves are gathering on our lawns in muted tones of brown and yellow.

At this time of year, we are often looking for new pastimes, and we have some suggestions for you. Our Crafts co-ordinator, Kathy Morris, has offered to teach a session or two of crocheting at the Centre to anyone who wants to get into that line of handicrafts. If you are at all interested give her a call at 250 453-9830.

We have some other suggestions, too – the pool table is ready and waiting, and maybe we could have a reading group to talk about what you are reading and enjoying (or not, as the case may be!) but not necessarily to dissect and critique. My feeling is that books are to be read and enjoyed rather than deconstructed, but that is just my opinion.

For new endeavours, we need to have a fair number who want to take part, say a dozen or so, so that it is worthwhile opening up. For now, perhaps Thursday afternoons might be the best time to get together at the Seniors’ Centre.

Don’t forget the flu shot clinic to be held on Thursday, Nov. 6 or the local Elections to be held on Saturday, Nov. 15. Remember, every vote counts!

I hope you enjoy the rest of our fine weather and come out to our Business Meeting on Thursday, Nov.  20 at 1 pm. There is no potluck lunch this month, but there will be coffee, tea and goodies. You are all needed, ready, willing and able to make our group the success it can be.
