It is so nice to finally see green grass appearing and Williams Lake clear of the winter ice.
Hopefully the weather will be much warmer in May so we can do some gardening.
The used clothing sale on April 26 and 27 was very well attended.
Many thanks for all the donations of clothing and to Marlene and all the hard-working helpers who sorted clothing for the sale and later came to pack up the clothing that was not sold.
Your help was greatly appreciated by the OAPO.
The fundraising dinner held for the Seniors’ Summer Games was also well attended.
Ellen Weige and her team of helpers did an excellent job of hosting the roast pork dinner which was so delicious.
Good luck at the games to all the seniors who take part in the games to be held in Langley, from Sept 9 to 13.
The OAPO regional meeting on April 24 had Carrie Sundahl from Better at Home, as the guest speaker.
This is a new program to help seniors remain independent at home.
They provide help both inside the home and also do some yard work.
You can contact Carrie at her office in the Seniors Centre for more information if you are interested in this program. Phone 778-412-2430 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
