I was told the secret of good health and longevity is to keep busy with both mind and body.
At the rate I am going, I am sure I will live to 100.
To think that prior to retiring I was worried as to what I would do with all my spare time!
My children would like me to recount my experiences growing up in the East during the Second World War and what it was like to see Canada through the eyes of an immigrant.
My reply is that I am too busy living the present to relive the past.
Now that the summer months are behind us, the Seniors Activity Centre is humming with all its regular activities.
The card players have really not stopped through the summer but the exercise, choirs and other groups will be resuming their activities.
Phone Glenda at 250-392-7946 to check up on the activity that you are interested in.
The Senior Carollers will have their first practice on Sept. 11 at 2:30 p.m. and they are inviting any seniors who enjoy singing to join up.
If you are at all interested and have any questions please phone Pat Cassidy at 250-392-4236.
Of interest to crib players, the centre is hosting a crib tournament on Oct. 18 for $15 per person.
