Seniors carry out without president

The Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association conducted business as usual while president Pat Kirby was in the hospital.

The Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors held a general meeting on June 19 without their president Pat Kirby, who was in the Kamloops’ hospital. Muriel Scallon chaired the meeting in her absence. Joyce Freeman led in the singing of O Canada.

Minutes were read by Donna Tetrault and they were approved. Two directors were elected by acclamation – Nola and Erma.

There was no report on the chair lift for the front entrance yet. Barb Shaw suggested another meeting on this matter to find out more about what we need for a variance permit to have it installed.

Nola suggested that we get a rolling cart to hold dishes when we have our bazaars, and everyone agreed.

The treasury report was unable to be read at this time because the treasurer was absent; the kitchen report was also unble to be read for the same reason. Some discussion on this followed and we will try to remedy this for future meetings.

Committee reports were read and most are slowing down for the summer months. We stillhave some carpet bowling and our windup will be June 27.

Our thanks to all until we open again in September. Barb thanked Muriel for taking on the meeting and Donna read out the birthdays for June.

Some jokes were read and the meeting adjourned. Tea, coffee and goodies were served and after a gab session, the cards were brought out and the fun began.

Nola, I’ll miss your laugh while we are closed for the summer.
