Lots to do at the Quesnel Seniors’ Centre

Drop by for lots of fun and lots of companionship at the Seniors' Centre

Rae Daggitt is the president of the Seniors'Centre Society

Rae Daggitt has been president since 2007 and says the present committee is a great group and makes him look good.

The Seniors’ Centre is run by volunteers. The only paid staff is the janitor. There is always something interesting going on so come in and talk to the volunteers who are there Monday – Friday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

They can show you the complete list of activities with the contact phone number. Here are just some of the highlights you may be interested in:

Monday: English Handbells, Campfire singers

Tuesday: TOPS, whist and crib

Wednesday: Bridge, knitting club

Thursday: Carpet bowling and line dancing

Friday: Ladies pool,  Red Hat Ladies

Like to share interesting food? Come the last Sunday of the month for a potluck and entertainment – meet new friends and sign up to be a member – only $10 per year.

Also watch for the excellent Sunday breakfasts on the first and third Sundays.

Christmas is coming and there will be a dinner.

There are groups that sign up to use the facility so look for the next concert or community fundraiser. If you want to rent the hall just come on in and talk to the fine folks at the Seniors’ Centre. Dee Adams is the one to contact for rentals, 250-992-3991.

I hope you are enjoying my columns. I plan to highlight the Old Tyme Fiddlers next month.

Marian Gillard is a seniors’ advocate and regular Observer columnist.
