Seniors’ centre says thank you

Events just past, and coming up, at the Ashcroft/Cache Creek seniors' centre.

Dorothy Pears

Thank you to all who attended this year’s Seniors’ Bazaar. A special thanks to all those who worked in the kitchen and to the servers, and to Barbara Roden for the report she gave us in The Journal.

The winners of the various draws and raffles were: Nick Lebedoff (crock pot raffle); Emily Monette (night light raffle); Tyra Schalles (Christmas hamper); Joyce Deering ($100); and Arden Rowe ($50).

The Christmas lunch for seniors will be at the Legion Branch #113 in Ashcroft, at noon on Thursday, December 8. Anyone who plans to attend should call the seniors’ centre at (250) 453-9828 prior to November 30.

The next monthly meetings will be held on November 17 and December 15 at the seniors’ centre on Bancroft Street in Ashcroft.

The meetings begin with a potluck lunch at noon. All are welcome; and we at the seniors’ centre to appreciate all the help given to us by residents in Ashcroft and Cache Creek.
