Spring has officially arrived and it must be true as to my delight a large family of robins descended on my Mountain Ash tree in the back yard basking in the sunshine.
We also noticed in the past few weeks a flock of Canada Geese feeding on the golf course before heading on their long journey north.
A good omen.
The OAPO Branch 93 (Old Age Pensioners Organization) held their Shamrock lunch and bake sale on March 17, St. Paddy’s Day at the Seniors’ Centre.
It was simply amazing to see so many people show up wearing green and enjoying themselves.
A huge thank you to all the people who came to support this event and to Toni Smith and all of her many volunteer workers who helped to make the day the success it was.
April is shaping up for a busy month.
The OAPO Branch 93 will be holding their spring pancake breakfast on Saturday, April 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Seniors’ Activity Centre.
Everyone is welcome to attend and enjoy a breakfast of pancakes, scrambled eggs, ham, orange juice and coffee for $6.
It is a great way to start off the day so come and enjoy.
On Sunday, April 14, there will be a Seniors’ Games fundraising dinner at the centre.
Dinner will be roast beef with all the trimmings and there will be a a silent auction to take part in.
Donations are needed for the silent auction and will be greatly appreciated.
In case you have any good, used summer clothing that you no longer need, there will be a good, used-summer clothing sale at the Seniors’ Centre on Saturday, April 27 and 28.
Donations are gratefully accepted and can be dropped off at the Seniors’ Centre after April 1.
