Strawberry Tea plans made

From the monthly meeting of the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association.

The monthly meeting of the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors on Feb. 21 was chaired by Pat Kirby. We had a poor turnout but those who did come were glad to come and meet with each other again. The Winter seems to keep members indoors, so nice to get out and about again.

Donna Tetrault kept us up to date with the Minutes of our last meting. Business from the Minutes were our donation to the Variety Club. Pennies collected and a Bingo held in Cache Creek totalled over $1,400. Thanks to all for that.

We are planning a bus trip to Anglemont on Apr. 19. We have some seats left so see Pat Kirby if you care to come along. It is a fun day with a live play put on by the Anglemont gals and men. Always a fun time for all.

Our Strawberry Tea is Apr. 27. All are welcome to attend. We are selling tickets for the draw of prizes to be given at this event. Please help support our Seniors Centre by purchasing these tickets.

The Treasurers Report was read by Pat Kirby. We had two letters read and attended to. Kitchen Report by Barb Shaw – all is going well there. Thanks for all the goodies provided each day.

In the past our coffee and goodies on meeting day were free but the members voted to have that paid the same every other day.

Bingo, Bridge and Carpet Bowling are all very well attended events. We aways welcome more to come out and enjoy our fun times. Crafts are still looking for items for our craft room. And don’t forget, we have a large library to lend books from – or to receive books if you have some you would like to donate.

The 2013 Seniors Games are being held in Kamloops in August. If you want to get involved by entering or helping out, phone Isabel McGrath in Ashcroft for details.

We had some complaints on the noise level at times as our games got going in the Centre. Hope to hear we can have a good time and maybe keep the level of noise down. Banging on tables doesn’t do it.

Thanks from Marge Baron for the Get Well card.

Letter from the high school regarding our bursary. Voted to continue to offer it again this year.

Fritz Baatz donated a quilting frame to the Cactus Strippers.

Clinton Seniors are holding their Daffodil Tea on May 13 for any members who want to attend.

Birthdays for February: Flo Berry, Georgette Evans, Joyce Freeman, Joyce West, Ken Lukes, Isabel McGrath, Stan Saari, Orest Maksymiw and Bill Munro.
