The Seniors’ annual Christmas Tea last weekend was very well attended

Winter indoor activities popular again

Monthly news from the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association

A small group of Seniors met for the monthly meeting of the Ashcroft-Cache Creek Seniors Association on Nov. 17. We hope more will attend our Christmas luncheon on Dec. 15 at Chris’ Under the Bridge restaurant. You must see Pat Kirby for tickets before the end of November if you plan to attend.

We have a new librarian. She is Donna, and she will be sorting and placing books. See her if you wish to take out a book.

The Kitchen Report was read by Glenys, as Barb Shaw was absent.

It must be Winter as our Bingo and Bridge groups are getting back to normal attendance. Carpet Bowling has been slow but that is mostly because of illness. Crafts are always an ongoing item. Anyone wanting to view or make something can talk to Muriel about it. We could use new items to display.

A letter is being sent to Pat and Norm for all their help over the years.

Nine birthdays, Get Well and sympathy cards were sent out to members.

Jokes were related and then the birthdays were read for the month: Ena Charles, Rene Corneillie, Alice Durksen, Linda Holland, Berniece Lemley, Cami Lindseth, Irma Schalles, Fusa Teshima, Donna Tetrault and Hilda Drinkwater. Happy Birthday was sang and the meeting was ended. Coffee, tea and goodies were served over talk and card games.
