Rockin’ and Talkin’ – Seniors planning a High Tea

Zee Chevalier's monthly column of Clinton Seniors Association news.

September’s here already! Where did the summer go? It seemed to go by so quickly.

Labour Day long week-end traditionally heralds the end of summer holidays and the start of school, meetings, and routines. First day of Autumn is Sept. 22. Grandparents’ Day is Sept. 15 –  a good day for a little celebration!

The Chevalier reunion was held out at the cabins on Jesmond Road on the August long week-end.  Approximately 60 family members gathered to mark the occasion which reflected 70 years of ownership of the property by the Chevalier family. A great time was had by all!

Thank you to Integris Credit Union who sponsored Seniors Appreciation Day on Aug. 28 – great hot dogs!! Thank you, Integris, for honouring the seniors in our community.

Weren’t the Music in the Park nights just great? Thank you to the organizers – wonderful summer entertainment!

In recognition of Clinton’s 150/50 Anniversary the Clinton Seniors Association will hold a High Tea in the Clinton Memorial Hall on Sept. 28 from 3-5 pm. Hope to see you there!

Thank you so much to all those people who gave me used stamps. They are very, very much appreciated. I won’t appeal again but perhaps will be able to give you an update on the progress of the project.

I’ll continue to collect stamps so please keep me in mind if you have an accumulation of used stamps in the future.

Cards and Games are held every Monday at 1 pm in the Seniors Centre at 217 Smith Ave. Come out and enjoy a couple of hour with your friends.

Next regular General Meeting of the Clinton Seniors Association is Sept. 19 following a Potluck lunch. All seniors are invited to join the Clinton Seniors Association. Annual fees are $15. Meetings are always held the third Thursday of the month at the Seniors Centre. There are three fund raisers a year  –  the Spring Daffodil Tea, the July 1 Yard Sale/Book and Bake Sale and the Marketplace in November.

Happy Birthday greetings to Diane Moulton (Sept. 15).
