Seniors’ Centre bazaar set for Nov. 15

Suddenly we are caught off guard and experiencing the first taste of winter.

Suddenly we are caught off guard and experiencing the first taste of winter.

It’s a big adjustment to make, having to wear winter boots, gloves, and warmer clothes.

Also the chore of having to change over to winter tires for safety, if you drive a car.

The OAPO Branch 93 held their winter clothing sale on Oct. 13-14 before the cold weather descended upon us.

It was a great success convened by Marlene Davis and her team of hard-working volunteers. A big thank you to everyone who supported the sale and to those who donated used clothing to sell.

Buyers are getting very good quality clothing at this event.

The Seniors’ Activity Centre’s fundraising turkey dinner held on Oct. 21 was a sell-out.

Money raised by these fundraisers helps to keep the Seniors’ Centre upgraded.

Kitchen renovations are long overdue so will be receiving top priority in the future. Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped to make this dinner a success, including our Mayor Kerry Cook and Coun. Danika Hughes.

The OAPO Branch 93 is having its annual bazaar on Thursday, Nov. 15 at the Seniors’ Centre from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

There will be a craft and bake table. Donations for the bake table are appreciated. Raffle tickets are on sale now for the quilt, gift certificate and food hamper.

The draw will be held on Nov. 1 at 1 p.m. at the Senior’s Centre due to a misprint on the tickets.

If you do not want changes made to our medicare plan it is important to write to our MP Dick Harris with copies to our MLA and Prime Minister Steven Harper.

The Senior Carollers are welcoming new members to join their group.

They meet every Friday from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at the Seniors’ Centre.

Join the seniors for a pot-luck supper on Thursday, Oct. 26 at 5:30 p.m.

Bring your favourite casserole, salad or dessert for an evening of fun and a good meal.

The next OAPO meeting will be on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 2 p.m. at the Seniors’ Centre. Everyone is welcome. We hope to see you there.

Until next month, keep warm and stay healthy.
