The weatherman has been dishing up some very disappointing weather for May.

The weatherman has been dishing up some very disappointing weather for May.

It feels more like March again.

I hope June shows a big improvement so we can enjoy some gardening and other outdoor activities.

On Thursday, May 23 Sondra Giske arranged to have the United Way hold a workshop at the Seniors’ Activity Centre on the role and responsibilities of the board in an organization governing body.

It covered the five primary areas of the board’s responsibility; planning and evaluation, financial stewardship, human resources, stewardship risk management, and stakeholders relations and accountability.

The executive director is responsible for the management of the organization as well as the implementation of the policy and planning work of the board.

The workshop was well attended by members of the Seniors’ Activity Centre and the Old Age Pensioners Organization Branch 93.

In June the B.C. Old Age Pensioners Organization will hold its annual convention in Princeton from June 11 to 13.

There will be five delegates attending from Williams Lake OAPO Branch 93.

Each branch will be submitting resolutions to be presented to the provincial and federal government regarding issues concerning seniors such as health, pensions, social welfare, etc.

A report will be given on the convention at a later date.

The OAPO Branch 93, Williams Lake is looking for people interested in being on their board.

Phone Pat at 250-392-4236 or Floris at 250-392-5391, or come to the meeting on June 6 at 2 p.m. at the Seniors’ Activity Centre.

After the meeting tea, coffee and refreshments will be served and there will be a chance to win a free lunch.

The Seniors’ Centre is also looking for a volunteer to run the lunch concession at the bingo held at the centre on Saturdays from 12 to 2 p.m.

This can be a fun way to get out and meet people, so why not give it a try.

Until next time keep healthy and be happy and enjoy each day to the fullest.
