From the Centre – Tickets on sale for Christmas draw

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

Fourteen Ashcroft-Cache Creek seniors met on Oct. 17 for their monthly meeting at the Seniors Centre.

President Pat Kirby welcomed everyone for coming. The group proceeded to sing O Canada.

Special Guest was David Hosford, who has the taxi cab. He told the group that the taxi is available for pick-up, drop off and wait to take people from Clinton, Cache Creek to Ashcroft and also Kamloops once a month. He then gave a short talk on the cost of the trips. He also will wait and bring passengers back. Everyone was very impressed about the costs. For more information, call Dave at 457-2902.

Pat then advised everyone that the 80 Plus Luncheon on Oct. 10 was well attended. For those who missed it, it was a great meal. Pat also thanked all of the ladies who helped out and worked so hard to make it a great day. Thank you ladies, very much! Pat also  would like to thank Randy and Deanna Porter from Desert Hills Ranch for their generous donation of flowers.

So now we are all getting ready for our next upcoming event which is our Christmas Bazaar Tea, which will be held on Saturday, Nov. 16 at the Seniors Centre, 1-3 pm. Draw for tickets will be held at 2:45 pm exactly, so be sure and buy your tickets early! We are selling them at the Post Offices in Cache Creek and Ashcroft, and at the Safety Mart in Ashcroft. Members are also selling them.

Committee reports were all read, along with correspondence. It would still be nice to see more people out to the meetings. Members will be getting a call to find out how many will be coming to the Christmas Luncheon being held at the Bears Claw on Dec. 12. Hope to see you all there. Hope to see you all there. Ten members went over to Lillooet for a Carpet Bowling Day. A good Day was had by all and very much enjoyed.

Our Secretary, Donna Tetrault, read out a couple of good jokes.

We then sang Happy Birthday to our members with October birthdays. We sang to Marg Appleby and Val Martin. Happy birthday, ladies.

Pat then thanked everyone for coming and attending.Coffee, tea and goodies were then served. Pat also would like to to give a special Thank You to Harold and Binki for doing a special skit at our 80 Plus Luncheon.
