Better At Homes program manager Sandy Williams about to cut the cake to welcome everyone to the new office in Ashcroft last month.

Fun never stops at the Seniors Centre

Monthly news from the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association.

Hello to all from the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association! We are fortunate to have such a lovely facility in which to hold our day to day activities.

We have such fun with our games and camaraderie from day to day.

Our carpet bowling is a fine time to get some exercise and chat with each other. Bridge is a good way to keep your brain engaged. We also have other ways to keep us stimulated, such as reading, knitting, crochet and jigsaw puzzles. We have a fine library at the Seniors Centre to borrow from. Our coffee pot goes on at 2 pm and there is tea and goodies every day that we are open. Please come out and see what we have to offer.

All reports were read at our monthly meeting on Feb. 20, and all are in very good shape. We have a lot of crafts what are available at any time the Centre is open.

We have some used chairs and a few tables at a good price, so those can be had when we are open also.

A letter was sent to the Lions and president Nick Lebedoff thanking them for taking on the Better at Home program. We thank you and your group for your foresight. We are in the process of getting our Spring Bazaar planning into place. Tickets are available around town and at the Safety Mart. Please help us with our fundraising and buy some.

Our Sunshine sent our nine cards to members, either sick at home or otherwise under the weather. Hope you are all better now.

Dates to remember include the Clinton Tea on March 12.

Ashcroft Councillor Doreen Lambert spoke on Heritage Day, March 23 and an event taking place in the community hall from 2-3 pm where Bernie Fandrich, author of Majestic Thompson River, will talk about interesting and little known facts about the river.

Birthdays for February: Flo Berry, Joyce Freeman, Georgette Evans, Ken Lukes, Orest Maksymiw, Isabel McGrath, Bill Munro, Kathy Morris, Loreen Martin, Stan Saari and Joyce West.

Cake and refreshments were enjoyed by all.
