Well, we made it through a very active December, unscathed.

Our Christmas Dinner & Dance on Dec 10th was a great success. We had a good turnout of members and guests who enjoyed an afternoon of dance music and great food. Winner of the gourmet baskets were Gord Nowicky and Diane Lenchuk and many others went home with spot dance and door prizes. Thank you to Mary Lou and all her helpers for a great afternoon.

Thank you to Donna Ayotte, Mary Lou Talmage and Judy Newstrom for their part in putting on the children’s Xmas party on Dec 8th.

Our first annual Xmas Bake sale was a huge success due to the large amount of baking donations and patronage. A big thank you to everyone who contributed baking and worked the meat draw, and especially to Candace and Paul Fontaine for taking charge of the whole event. Paul proved to have excellent skills when it came to marketing.

Many of our members took part in the carolling at Deer Lodge and enjoyed an afternoon of camaraderie back at the club. Nothing is more gratifying than seeing the residents singing along with us and knowing all the words of old war songs.

Our bowlers had a Xmas luncheon on Dec 20th. Our second quarter winners were team, Messed Up with team captain, Linda Messervey, Tom Higham, Laura Scott, and Lorne Kingyens.

On behalf of the Over 55 and Retired Club I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year.
