From the Centre – Teas and bazaars have seniors busy

Monthly summary of news and events from the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association.

The first meeting of the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association since June was held with some of the faithful members attending. Welcome back for another session of fun and games.

First on the list of upcoming events is our Over 80 Tea to honour our oldest members. Please come out and say ‘hello’ and give them a hug. This is happening Oct. 10 at the Seniors Centre. Doors open at 11:30 am, with photos at 11:45 for all of the over 80 members. Hope to see you there.

Our Christmas Dinner is booked for Dec. 12, so anyone wanting to attend will have to see Pat Kirby to let her know ahead of time.

We are starting our plans for the next bazaar and tea on Nov. 16. We need ticket sellers for this. Please help out by buying or helping us sell them. All of our committee reports were read and we need some more members out to help on some of our events. Bingo, Bridge, and Carpet Bowling are some of the most popular means of fun.

A letter was read from Carmen Agatiello, thanking us for her bursary. We all wish you well, Carmen.

Jokes were read by Donna Tetrault;

Birthdays for September: Dorothy Colebank, Fran Hellad, Ashley Lindseth, Mary Lomond, Binky Nichel and Lois Petty, Edna Spelay, John West and Ronald Richardson.
