Notes from the Prince Rupert Seniors Centre for Nov. 9 – 15

We had new members join line dancing which is great to see. The more, the better.

Whist Monday: 1st- C. & Bob, 2nd-Lynne & Mary S. 3rd-John and sister Mary.  (Thursday winners will be in next week…)

We had new members join line dancing which is great to see.  The more, the better.  Thank you Karen for continuing to give instruction on Thursday mornings.

Next Tuesday, Nov. 15 is the lunch and info session sponsored by Pacific NorthWest LN. I have asked everyone who is interested to please sign up as they need to know how many sandwiches to order.  If you have not signed up yet, but are planning to attend please call me at 250-627-1900.  Thank you!

The Tea & Bazaar is only a couple of weeks away on Saturday, Nov. 26 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Thank you to everyone who has donated items to the hampers, raffles and helped sell (or purchase) raffle tickets.  We are looking forward to a great turnout this year.

We are closed for Remembrance Day (Friday Bingo cancelled).
