Wagon rides for seniors go Monday

The Cariboo Driving and Draft Horse Club hosts their annual wagon rides for seniors and barbecue at the Seniors' Village this Monday.

WOW!  It’s already time for the most exciting  annual event for the Cariboo Driving and Draft Horse Club! says club spokesperson Eileen Alberton.

The Senior’s Ride at the Williams Lake Senior’s Village, at the end of Western Avenue goes from about 11 a.m. until around 2 p.m. on Monday, June 17.

The club members bring teams of horses, wagons, and the wheelchair wagon to the village where they do rides for interested seniors, family members and care aides.  This year teamsters Karen Sepkowski, Roy Mulvahill, Bud Weir and Merv Furlong, joined by swampers and helpers Kim Sepkowski, Gwen Mulvahill, Sandy Weir, Shirley Furlong, event coordinator Eileen Alberton,  Randy Walter, Voni Johnston, Robert and Christine Steele, as well as many other members will be there to enjoy the day, and to lend a supporting hand.

As usual, Dale Martin, representative of the Tolko 10 Year Club will be providing mouth watering chuck wagon style food, and  entertainment will be provided by local Rosetta Paxton and friends!

The Lions Club is generously donating tables and chairs for the function, and Bob MacIntosh and Citizens on Patrol will be there to ensure safety with traffic for all participants.
