Seniors’ Centre pancake breakfast well attended

I hope all seniors are out enjoying the nice weather and going for walks or working in their yards.

I hope all seniors are out enjoying the nice weather and going for walks or working in their yards. It is also good to see the golfers out in force once again.

The OAPO Branch 93 had a really good turn-out for their pancake breakfast at the Seniors’ Centre.

Many thanks to Floris and all the volunteers who helped and to those who came with friends and family to support the event.

The Seniors’ Games fundraiser dinner and silent auction also had a huge turnout on April 14 at the Seniors’ Centre. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment by The Perfect Match.

They had the floor packed with dancers and they were very enjoyable to listen to.

Ellen and her volunteers did an excellent job and are thankful for all the support in aid of the Seniors’ Summer Games that will be held in Kamloops this summer.

For those seniors interested in playing cards there is cribbage at 1 p.m. on Mondays and 7 p.m. on Fridays at the Seniors’ Centre.

If you’d rather play bride it is held on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. for beginners or 12:30 p.m. on Thursdays.

Duplicate bridge is on Tuesday night at 7 p.m.

For more physical workouts there is carpet bowling at 1 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays at the Seniors’ Centre. As you can see there is no need to sit at home, as there is always plenty to do at the Seniors’ Centre.

The OAPO Branch 93 holds their monthly meeting at the Seniors’ Centre on the second Thursday of each month at 2 p.m. except for July and August.

Tea, coffee and refreshments are served after the meeting. New members are always welcome and needed to keep this worthwhile group operating.

Their members work hard to help keep the Seniors’ Centre operating for all seniors to enjoy.

What would we do without it?

We wish all the seniors who are recovering in hospital or at home a speedy recovery. If possible take time to visit the seniors in Deni House or the Seniors’ Village.

They look forward to seeing familiar faces and enjoy your company immensely. You’ll be really glad you did.

Until Next Month keep healthy and happy.

Win Gooding is a member of the Seniors’ Activity Centre and the OAPO Branch 93.
