When I took on the job of writing this column, I was given a folder of old reports and clippings going back quite a few years. Reading them brought back many memories of people whom I remembered for their pet words, actions and sayings. It is quite astounding how many people have lived in or passed through our small village!
In the interests of accuracy, I have to admit to omitting the word “acting” in Muriel’s title in my last column. She is, of course, Acting President in Pat Kirby’s absence. Please, if you want my attention drawn to anything in my writing, call me or come to the Centre and tell me. That will be much appreciated!
It was great to see so many members attending and participating in discussions at our meeting at the Centre on Oct. 16. All our enterprises are thriving with regular and new members taking part. If you would like to learn to play bridge, Bill Drinkwater has volunteered to set up a time to coach you, so call him at 453-9413 and he will get you organised.
The Over 80’s lunch was well attended by both the Honorees and their escorts and I am just sorry I had to be out of town. Many thanks to all those who saw to it that everything went well and all friends had a good time.
At the meeting on Oct. 16. we had presentations from Sandy Williams of Ashcroft’s Better At Home program and from two ladies from Ridgepoint Residences in Kamloops. They left us with many thoughts for the future and our care, and some very good pamphlets for our information. You can find them on our noticeboard.
In the planning stages are two Flu Clinics: Nov. 6 in Ashcroft Community Hall, and Nov. 13 in Cache Creek Community Hall, both from 9:30am to 3pm. Our members will direct the flow of people at both clinics and we hope there will be a great many of you present to get your flu shots.
Next in the planning is our Fall (Christmas) Bazaar on Nov. 29 with Crafts for sale, a Baked Goods Table and a delicious Tea which comes with your entry ticket. There are already some clever crafted things just right for Christmas Stockings so come and buy!
We are encouraged by the new members who are coming to carpet bowl and play cards, but there is still room for many more. We are looking for sufficient numbers to have the centre open on Thursdays and maybe even on Wednesday, so come along and join us – you will be welcomed.
