There is a noticeable chill in the air now that fall has arrived.

Time to put our summer clothes away and bring out our warmer wear.

The OAPO Branch 93 will be having its fall good used clothing sale on Oct. 19-20 at the Senior’s Activity Centre downstairs.

If you have any good winter clothes that you want to get rid of, please bring them to the Senior Centre for the sale before that date.

For pick up call Marlene at 250-398-8025 or Tillie at 250-392-5810.

The Senior’s Quilters won a first prize for the quilt they entered in the Fall Fair.

Great work, ladies, on your beautiful quilt.

The OAPO Branch 93 members are selling raffle tickets now at Save-On-Foods, Safeway and Walmart on various days.

The Senior’s Quilt will be the first prize and the draw will be held at the OAPO Fall Bazaar and Lunch at the Senior’s Centre on Nov. 7.

Money raised from the raffle will go to the Senior Centre to be used for the kitchen.

The OAPO Branch 93 Pancake Breakfast will be held at the centre on Saturday, Oct. 7 from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. with pancakes, scrambled eggs, ham, juice and coffee or tea. Plan to come and bring the family and friends for a very tasty breakfast.
