Winter has arrived in all its snowy-white glory.
It’s really a beautiful sight to see, but it also can bring with it a great deal of problems to contend with.
Seniors, unfortunately, are affected the most, especially if they are living alone.
The Seniors Activity Centre provides a great service by serving tasty lunches and also has social activities to brighten up the long winter days.
The centre is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Friday.
On Saturday there is bingo from 12 to 2 p.m.
The Old Age Pensioners Organization Branch 93 held their annual bazaar and lunch on Nov. 6.
It was a huge success with many thanks to the convenors Pat Cassidy and Tina Derkson for a job well done.
Thanks also goes out to all the hard-working helpers that day.
Also special thanks for those generous donations for the bake table. It was truly amazing.
The winners names of the raffle are posted on the bulletin board at the centre.
At the OAPO annual general meeting on Nov. 13 the election of new officers was held.
Congratulations to Cecilia Newman elected as president and Marlene Davis, second vice-president. The OAPO Branch 93 wishes them well.
The OAPO Branch 93 will hold their annual Christmas turkey dinner for seniors on Thursday, Dec. 11 at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church hall.
Tickets are on sale now at the Seniors Activity Centre for $18 each.
Tickets must be bought in advance by Dec. 5 at 3 p.m.
Until next year have a very Merry Christmas and a safe, happy New Year to all.
