Another New Year has just begun. I hope everyone had a very happy Christmas and that Santa was good to you.

I hope everyone had a very happy Christmas and that Santa was good to you.

The Old Age Pensioners Organization Branch 93 (OAPO) annual Christmas dinner held at the Catholic church hall was a very joyful event.

The Catholic Women’s League served up a delicious turkey dinner with all the trimmings which was enjoyed by all who attended.

Many thanks, ladies, and all the OAPO members who helped to make the evening the success it was.

The Seniors Activity Centre opened again on Jan. 5 after a much-deserved break for all the volunteers to enjoy the holidays with their families and friends.

All activities held at the centre will be starting up again so start the New Year right and become involved.

The OAPO Branch 93 monthly meeting will be held on Thursday, Jan. 8, at 1 p.m. at the centre.

Everyone is welcome to come and stay for coffee, tea and refreshments after the meeting.

Looking for a great turnout.

This will be my last column for the OAPO Branch 93 news as I will be leaving Williams Lake in a few weeks and moving to Campbell River to be closer to my family.

I will miss all of my many good friends I have made over the past years, but the time has come for me to move on to the next chapter in my life.

Until we meet again enjoy every day for the rest of your life.
