“Baking My Way Through the Alphabet” is a cookbook of desserts baked by Mona Izumi for the Seniors’ Centre.  We love Mona’s desserts.  We’ll be selling the cookbooks at the Tea on Nov. 26 or you can purchase one now at the centre, six $10 books sold in the first three minutes.

Our next pancake breakfast is Sunday, Nov. 6 at 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Don’t forget that the clocks “fall” back one hour on Sunday.

Chair exercises start Monday, Nov. 7 at 3:15 p.m. with the physiotherapy student instructors from Northern Health putting you through your paces.  Drop-in by donation.  Each session usually runs five to six weeks. Get fit before Christmas.

Pacific NorthWest LNG will sponsor a free lunch and information/update session:  Tuesday, Nov. 15 at noon, all seniors welcome.  Please sign-up by e-mail, phone or in person at least a week before, so we know how many sandwiches are needed.

Thank you.Donna
