Seniors ready for Kamloops Games

The monthly report from the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association.

Vicky Trill was the guest speaker at the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Senior’s Association meeting in June. She spoke on senior’s fitness activities such as swimming, exercise, walking and playing games like bocci ball on the grass. July 10 will be a Games Day in Cache Creek Park, and all are welcome to attend.

Donna Tetrault read the Minutes of the last meeting. Fritz Baatz read the annual financial report. All other reports were read and were well received.

The BC Carpet Bowling Association held their annual meeting in Ashcroft and Pat Kirby brought us up to date on that.

Bingo is finished until September – thank you to all our callers, cashiers and helpers for all you do throughout the year.

The Senior Games report said 600 from Zone 8 are entered in this year’s Games, held in Kamloops in August.

Sunshine cards have been sent to 15 members.

The Association is applying for a grant to put in a chair lift at the Centre to help our handicap seniors get into the building.

The Seniors Centre is closed for the summer until Sept. 9. We will have an Open House on Sept. 25 from 1-4 pm. Anyone interested in becoming a member, please come out and keep our Seniors Centre open to enjoy another year or so.

On Oct. 10 we will honour our 80-plus group. Join us at the luncheon and wish them well. The Fall Bazaar and Tea is on Nov. 30.

Birthdays for June: Happy Birthday to Pat Kilt, Dorothy Maksymiw, Ken Martin, Gina Stewart, Loraine Shwaluk and Barb Yargeau.

Hope to see you in September when we open up our Seniors Centre again.
