Strawberry Tea plans being made

Meetings of the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association. By Muriel Scallon

We enjoyed a lovely pot luck lunch at our monthly Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors’ meeting on Feb. 17. Thanks to all the good cooks in our membership – the different dishes were enjoyed by all.

Our president was unable to convene the meeting, so Pat Kirby presided. Hope you’re better soon, Dorothy.

Member Orance Plamondon is sick and in the hospital. Hope you run out of jokes soon so you can go home, Orance.

Our speaker, Brittley Cadwell, was our bursary winner from a few years ago. She is now working at Revelations in Ashcroft. Go and see her for a nail clip and shape.

Minutes were read by Joyce Freeman. Our group is taking a bus to Anglemont for the plays and a fun day later on. Sign up quickly if you want to go. We have a list at the Centre. It’s always a great day!

Pat read our financial report. All bills are paid and we are in great shape.

Bingo is going great. Our terrific callers make it a fun day. Thanks to Nick, Kevin and Keith.

We are getting our craft items ready for our Strawberry Tea & Bazaar. We always have a good supply of items for anyone who would like to stop in and have a look.

Barb Shaw remarked that she likes to come to our Centre to laugh and have a good time and get along with everyone.

She gave the hospital report. She said the last meeting was very good. There was a suggestion of a coffee machine and maybe a juice box for people in the waiting room. She also thanked all of the doctors and nurses for her care while she was a hospital out patient.

A three-day seminar is being held at the Ashcroft Community Hall, Feb. 23-25 from 5:30-8 pm. Contact the South Cariboo Elizabeth Fry Society to sign up and for more information.

Nine cards went out to members for illness and birthdays. Thanks were received from Flo Berry for her Get Well card, and from Joyce Freeman for the flowers and card on her 90th birthday. The United Church gave her a lovely party. Hope everyone who was sick is better now, and that those with birthdays feel better even if they are a year older.

Tickets have been made up for our Strawberry Tea, so we will get them out to our sellers soon.

Our members collected $115 and donated it to the Variety Club Telethon.

The Lions have a box to collect old eye glasses at the Seniors Centre (next to the Village office on Brink St.). Anyone may drop them off during our open hours.

Birthdays for February: Flo Berry, Laura Byarnsen, Ken Cassidy, Mildred Clarke, Georgette Evans, Joyce Freeman, Orest Maksymiw, Isobel McGrath, Bill Munro, Stan Saari and Joyce West.
