Seniors ready for Strawberry Tea this Saturday

Monthly news from the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association.

The guest speakers at the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors’ Association’s monthly meeting was Vivian Edwards. She spoke on behalf of the Lions and their annual Skips Charity Run. Anyone can pledge or do one of the 10km, 5km or “around the block” runs with some other sponsor. The day is June 2 at 9 am. See Vivian or Nick Lebedoff for pledge sheets.

The Minutes of the last meeting were read by Donna Tetrault and passed.

Val, so sorry to hear that you are ill. Hope you get better soon.

Treasurer’s Report was read and signed off by Pat Kirby and Barb Shaw.

Kitchen Report by Barb, who said that all is fine. Our Bingo is still going great. Bridge is loved by all our players – we have three or four tables out for it. Carpet Bowling is very competitive and lots of fun for the teams who come out for that. Some of our members went to 100 Mile for a tournament recently and had a wonderful time. The hosts were wonderful and the food was great.

After trying a number of stores in Kamloops to find Bridge score pads – and no luck, we happened to go into a Dollar Store in 100 Mile and found quite a quantity of them. Thank you so much!

Sunshine cards went out to 11 members. Sorry to hear of your illnesses. Hope to see you back soon.

Our bus trip to Anglemont has 19 signed up so far. Should be a fun day.

Our Strawberry Tea is coming up quickly, so hope to see you all out for that – Apr. 28 starting at 1 pm.

Thank you to Barb, Donna and Flo Berry for the help with tickets, posters and the donation of an afghan.

After the birthdays were read, we all sat and played games and chatted. Birthdays for April were Fritz Baatz, Marge Baron, Mary Edwards, Lorrie Girrard, Patricia Kirby, Henry Klassen and Glenys Murray.
