Over 80s honoured, activities underway

Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association news

Our group held its Over-80s tea and luncheon on Sept. 29. Attending were Pat Kirby, Joyce Freeman, Berneice Lemley, Ozzie Lindseth, Marg Baron, Fritz and Marrion Baatz, Georgette Bewza, Bill Munro, Joan Kane, Bill and Hilda Drinkwater, Flo Berry, Lois Petty, and Peter and Margaret Shulz.

Helpers and workers were Ines Lopez, Linda Holland, Isabel McGrath, Dona Tetrault, Caroline Elliott and Rayla Reid.

Our Village was represented by Colin Williams and village staff. Thank you Colin for your insight on becoming an O.A.P.

We all enjoyed ourselves and wish all a happy and healthy year ahead.

A big Welcome Back to all our members. We had a lovely summer, once it started.

The carpet bowlers are back, enjoying the competition of the men against the women. Some of the players have improved over the summer, or is it just because we have all had a rest? Still lots of fun getting the bowl as close to the white ball as possible.

Sorry to hear some of our members are in the hospital and we all send our best wishes to them.

Speakers at the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association’s first meeting after the summer on Sept. 22 were Victor Ikari and Jack Ran, the pharmacists from our local drugstore. They will be coming to see us again at our Oct. 20 meeting. All are welcome to attend and get information on a new program on Provincial Medication Review.

We will have a pot luck lunch at noon at our Oct. 20 meeting. This is a trial basis and only if you do your own clean up after lunch. Our kitchen lady does not want the entire work this involves.

Plans have already been made for our Christmas Luncheon. Pat has been on the ball with this.

The annual Flu Clinic is coming up in October. Watch The Journal for times. We’ll see you there.

Kevin and Muriel Scallon, Isabel McGrath and Linda Holland attended the Senior Games in Castlegar and Nelson earlier this year. We brought home three golds and one bronze medal. We also had a load of fun and renewed old friendships. If anyone would like to attend or be involved with the Senior Games, please come on board and talk to Kevin Scallon on how to attend next year’s Games in Burnaby in September. You will have a great experience and enjoy all the new friends you make there.

As we are getting all our programs re-started after the summer, we hope to see some new members. If you like to have some fun in the afternoon, come out for cards, carpet bowling or bingo. We also have a great Bridge Club that you can join.
