According to the calendar March 21 was the first day of spring.
However, in the Cariboo we have to be patient as it is nowhere in sight unfortunately.
The weather didn’t affect the attendance at the Seniors OAPO Branch 93 Shamrock lunch, bake, and craft sale, held on March 20 at the Seniors’ Activity Centre.
Many thanks for the support of this event and the generous donations for the bake table from our members.
The volunteers all did a tremendous job and their work is very much appreciated to make it the success it was.
At our March OAPO meeting our newly elected president Sherry Exton handed in her resignation.
She has sold her business and will be moving away.
Sherry will be greatly missed by the OAPO Branch 93 and Seniors’ Centre for her leadership and cheerful disposition.
We wish her well in her new endeavours.
A friendly reminder that the OAPO will be having their Good Used Spring Clothing Sale on April 26 and 27 at the Seniors’ Centre.
If you have started to do your spring cleaning and would like to donate some summer clothes for this sale, please drop them off at the Seniors’ Centre before the date.
For pick up call Marlene Davis at 250-398-8025.
The OAPO monthly meeting will be held on April 10 at 1 p.m. at the Seniors’ Centre.
New members are always welcome.
Please come and bring a friend as your input is very important for concerns regarding the future of all seniors.
Join us for tea, coffee and refreshments afterwards.
The OAPO potluck supper is on Friday, April 28 at 5:30 p.m. in the Seniors’ Centre.
Come and bring your favourite casserole salad or a dessert and bring a friend for an enjoyable evening.
Until next month, keep smiling as spring is coming.
Win Gooding is a member of OAPO and the Seniors’ Activity Centre.
