Williams Lake Seniors’ Activity Centre back in full swing

It is wonderful to have the beautiful warm sunny days in September. I hope everyone is enjoying them as much as I am.

It is wonderful to have the beautiful warm sunny days in September. I hope everyone is enjoying them as much as I am.

If October turns out to be the same, winter won’t seem so long.

The Seniors’ Activity Centre is back in full swing again with all of the usual activities starting up with lunch during the week and bingo on Saturdays.

The new windows have been installed and look really good.

The building will be a lot warmer in the winter and the heat bill will be considerably lower as well.

Congratulations to the Senior Stitchers who won first prize for their beautiful quilt and to all the seniors who took first for their Old Age Pensioners Organization Branch 93 group entry. A very talented display of work to say the least.

There seemed to be a lot more entries in the Harvest Fair in all categories this year, and it was really very enjoyable to view them all.

The fall used winter clothing sale will be held at the Seniors’ Centre on Saturday, Oct. 13 and Sunday, Oct. 14.

If you have any good used clothing to donate you can drop it off at the centre before that date.

The potluck suppers will resume again on Sept. 28 at 5:30 p.m. at the centre.

Bring your favourite casserole, salad or dessert for an enjoyable evening and stay and play cards after if you like to join in.

There will be an important meeting for the public to attend regarding the cost of upgrading the pool at the Cariboo Memorial Complex in October and how much it will cost the individual taxpayer.

Your input is important as there will be a referendum held later.

The next monthly meeting of the OAPO Branch 93 will be held on Oct. 11 at 2 p.m. at the centre. It would be nice to see some new faces at this meeting, so try and come and bring along a friend.

Coffee, tea and refreshments are served later.

Until next month enjoy the sunshine — it will cheer you up.
