I’ve sort of lost a whole bunch of time and so many things are happening at the Seniors’ Activity Centre, I guess I was busy taking part in those activities (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it).
A big bouquet of roses to all those who make the St. Patrick’s Day luncheon a success.
Let’s start with the kitchen: Johanne, and her volunteers, great food and service.
To Pat Cassidy, our convener, great job Pat, and of course her volunteers.
To the raffle crew, mainly, Celia Newman, Joy McCann, and helpers who went out to the shops in town and were there with a quilt and other prizes, to you I thank you, and last but not least the Senior Quilters for the quilts they make for our raffles.
In April a roast beef dinner was held at the activity centre, a fund drive for the Seniors’ Games. This was a grand affair convened by Ellen Wiege and volunteers, many of whom are contestants, volunteers at the bar, the music for dancing, all those little things that make a good party, most of all those of you who came to our party, I thank you.
Our president Pat Cassidy, presented Ellen Wiege the Seniors’ Games co-ordinator with a cheque for $500 from the OAPO.
Senior games play downs are in carpet bowling, floor curling, and golfing.
Others who don’t have play downs include cycling and track events. Good luck to all.
We are enjoying some new menu changes from the kitchen. My favourite is beef dip and different desserts too.
Different workshops have been put on at the centre to help people to remain independent and live safely in their own homes longer.
Thank you to all who attended the pancake breakfast. Great job Marlene.
A happy 96th birthday to Anna in May.
Delegates to the OAPO annual meeting are Pat Cassidy, Marlene Davis, and Floris Martineau. Safe travelling ladies, have fun.
Do you think the sun will ever shine and we can talk about gardens?
Till next time.
