Love it or hate it winter has definitely arrived in the Cariboo. We hope all of you seniors are managing to carry on as usual.

If not remember there is always the handy dart or city bus to to take  you to your appointment or grocery shopping.

At their Nov. 14 meeting the OAPO Branch 93 held their annual elections.

Elected by acclamation were president Sherry Exton, vice-president Celie Newman, treasurer Floris Martineau, and secretary Elsie Sharun.

Directors are Marlene Davis, Vi Burrill, Tillie Knowles, and Adrie Pacholczyk.

Congratulations ladies for taking on these important positions

The used winter clothing sale was very successful.

Many thanks to all who helped with the sale and to all the good folks who donated the clothing. A job well done.

The OAPO fall bazaar, bake and craft sale was also very well attended again.

A huge thank you to all who donated the wonderful baked goods, crafts and brought raffle tickets.

Also to all the hard working members for making the fall bazaar a huge success once again. We couldn’t do it without your help.
