Seniors ask Cache Creek to reconsider

Ashcroft seniors ask Cache Creek Council to reconsider their stand on the community bus.

To the Cache Creek Mayor and Councillor

We are a group of Ashcroft seniors who have been using the bus on the first and second Wednesdays of each month to attend lunches for Wheels to Meals, kindly provided by North End Cafe and the Bear Claw Restaurant.

We have been using the bus for several years from Ashcroft to Cache Creek and return in order to support the bus. There are always others getting on or off at Cache Creek – what about them?

We were dismayed to receive your notification that the bus would no longer drop off or pick up passengers in Cache Creek.

With the recent devastating changes to Drivers License requirements, there will be fewer seniors able to drive and will therefore need the bus to do business or have lunch in Cache Creek. It is a shame that you think so little of our seniors and others who need bus transportation that you will no longer support the bus.

Please show some humanity and reconsider your decision.

Bernice Lemley, Dorothy Colebank, Ena Charles, Irma Schalles, Joyce Freeman and Betty Dillabough
