Another month has passed by and spring is finally here so we can now enjoy living outside when the sun shines.
The Old Age Pensioners Organization Branch 93 had another successful used spring clothing sale at the Senior’s Activity Centre.
Marlene Davis and her volunteers did a great job organizing the event and are thankful for all the donations of clothing that were given to make it possible.
The B.C. Senior’s Games fundraiser dinner on April 15 was a sold-out event. Ellen Wiege and her helpers put on a delicious roast pork dinner with all the trimmings and everyone really enjoyed the entertainment and taking part in the auction.
A job well done. A cheque for $500 was presented to Ellen by the OAPO Branch 93 to help with their expenses. A cheque was also given to the Senior’s Advocate council by the OAPO members.
Mark your calendars for the OAPO pancake breakfast held on Saturday, May 26 at the Senior’s Centre. Bring your family and friends and enjoy the camaraderie.
The B.C. OAPO convention will be held on June 10-13 at Agassis. Four delegates from our OAPO Branch 93 will be attending. Resolutions from all B.C. branches will be presented regarding seniors health, housing, pharmacare, pensions, etc. and voted on by the delegates. The ones selected will be sent on to the federal and B.C. governments for their approval.
Our branch will be notified of the results in the fall.
Remember that the potluck supper is held on the fourth Friday of each month at 5 p.m. at the Senior’s Centre.
Bring your favourite casserole, salad or dessert and meet some new members.
The OAPO monthly meeting is on the second Thursday each month at 2 p.m. at the centre.
New members are always welcome to come and learn more about senior’s concerns.
Give your opinion on what changes need to be addressed. Tea and coffee and goodies are served after the meeting, so hope to see you there.
Bye until next month.
