The burgers were plentiful and the music was live for the annual Stampede lunch hosted for residents at Williams Lake Seniors Village Thursday, June 23.

Seniors Village community relations manager Alex Froese said the lunch was a chance for residents to celebrate Canada Day, the local Rotary club and upcoming Canada Day.

As the residents enjoyed a lunch of barbecued burgers and potato salad, musicians Brian Sawyer and Rick Matthews entertained them.

The music had residents Louise Feddema and Barb Brown dancing in their seats.

“I love it,” said Feddema, swinging her arms to the music.

Mayor Walt Cobb was one of several Rotary Club of Williams Lake members cooking the hamburgers for the event, which the club has done for several years.

Cobb said he is really looking forward to all the celebrations coming up in the city, especially Stampede.

“I can’t wait. It’s going to be a great opportunity for everyone to get back together.”
