Notes from the Prince Rupert Seniors’ Centre for July 29 – Aug. 4

Thank you intrepid members! The parking lot is considerably smaller and shrinking daily it seems.

Thursday Whist:1st — Ron and Dumb Dumb, 2nd — Marg and Sharron, 3rd — Laurel and Della. Monday Crib: 1st — John and Mary, 2nd — Marg and Audrey, 3rd — Laurel and Gerda. Thursday Crib: 1st — Ed and Laurel, 2nd —Ron and lovely wife Heather, 3rd — John and Mary.

Foot care will take place today at 11 a.m.

Thank you intrepid members! The parking lot is considerably smaller and shrinking daily it seems. Who knows what tomorrow will bring, but the city is repairing the infrastructure on Fraser Street and will not be done until the end of September.  There is ample parking in the college lot as most classes are out this time of year, so a lot of our members are parking there.  Anyhow, good luck with all that.

Senior Games Zone 10 are ramping up preparations for the Games in August. Good luck to all our athletes and have fun!
