Senior Centre’s Chatter

The Golden Agers Society  Thanksgiving banquet went over very well with 83 people in attendance. As always, the Seniors Good Time Band provided great music for the evening. Also, the Golden Agers Society tried a couple of spot dances this time and look forward to more for future banquets.

Now that the fall weather has arrived, and your gardens are put away for the winter, please take the time to drop-in to the centre and enjoy a coffee or tea or a bite of lunch. Remember, this gets you out of the house and making new friends.

You do not have to be a member of the Golden Agers to enjoy this service. If you wish to join the Golden Agers you -— or your spouse — need to be 50-years-old or older. By being a member of the a Golden Agers you are entitled to have one ambulance ride per year reimbursed, to attend banquets through out the year at a nominal cost, and the opportunity to go on day trips at a nominal cost.

The CVRD directors and some staff will be visiting the Seniors’ Centre on Friday, Nov. 2, at noon. There will be a brief report on the Renfrew Town Square and new library by Mayor Forrest.

The Golden Agers have booked a trip to the Maclean Sawmill Christmas light-up on Nov. 23. Unfortunately the trip is limited to 18 members and is fully booked.

The line dancers are back on Mondays and Fridays, dancing from 12 p.m.-12:30 p.m., or longer. The line dancers are looking for people to join them. They will be teaching line dancing every Monday. You do not have to be a member and the lessons are free.

Every Thursday, some of the ladies get together in the craft room and work on their hobbies or they may work together on sewing, knitting, or other projects. Feel free to drop-in from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and bring your own craft or hobby to work on.
