The coffee was on at the Quesnel Seniors’ Centre early Sunday morning, where a kitchen of volunteers made pancakes and more.

The Quesnel and District Seniors’ Society hosted its last spring breakfast Sunday, May 15.

“This is a great place for seniors especially to sit down and have breakfast, meet friends, and spend a lot of time,” said society president Doug Service.

“Some of them spend a couple of hours here, so I think they have a good time.”

The latest pancake breakfast attracted around 120 people to support the seniors’ centre while enjoying a hearty breakfast.

Funds raised help with operating costs and offering activities at a minimal price.

“It costs quite a bit to keep this place going, especially with prices going up,” Service added.

Another pancake breakfast won’t return until mid-September.

The Quesnel Seniors’ Centre is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Membership is open to anyone 40-years-old and over.
