Smart 55: OAPO busy planning 2015 events

With Christmas and the New Year’s celebration behind us, what better way to work off those extra pounds than exercise?

With Christmas and the New Year’s celebration behind us, what better way to work off those extra pounds than exercise?

The Seniors Activity Centre has a Gentle Fit Class every Monday from 10:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. geared for seniors.

If exercise is not your thing you could walk with Chris Hornby and her group.

They meet every Monday and Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the corner of the swimming pool and the Seniors Centre.

Under the guidance of their new president, Cecilia Newman, the Old Age Pensioners Organization have been busy planning the events for the year of 2015.

Coming up next will be the Valentine Tea on Sunday, Feb. 15 from 2 to 3 p.m.

Eighty and older are free, while all others are $2. There will be gifts and door prizes.

Another date to remember is Feb. 26 when the Seniors Activity Society will hold their annual general meeting at 1:30 p.m.

The position of president, and some directors, will be voted on. On the agenda will be the motion to reinstate the name of OAPO Branch 93 onto the Society Act Certificate.

This will not in any way affect the running of the centre.

Next month I will explain the relationship between the OAPO and the board of the Seniors Activity Centre and what you get for your $20 membership fee.
