40 years of Friendship House

On February 17, The Old Age Pensioners celebrated the 40th anniversary of the local OAPO. Over 50 members and guests attended.

A 40 year certificate was presented by Provincial President, Fred Coates. Dick Hopkins gave a presentation on the history of the organization.

Agassiz Floor Curlers played host to curlers from Chilliwack last Thursday. Unfortunately, weather caused several of them to cancel, and only three attended. Forty-five curlers from this area participated.

The event consisted of four rounds with every player playing two games. After two games everyone enjoyed a nice luncheon.As it was strictly a social function, everyone was a winner. Last year Chilliwack acted as hosts for a similar event.

Coming up on March 12 is their annual St. Patricks Day Tea and Bake Sale.

Close to 120 people normally attend this event. There will be a raffle, silent auction and hamper sale along with our bake table. This is one the group’s main ways and means project of the year. The door normally is open at 1 p.m. with the bake table opening at 1:30 p.m.

They say they are looking forward to the continued support of the community.

Anyone who may be interested in knowing more about this event, or becoming a member of the OAPO, please feel free to contact Dick Hopkins at 604-796-9470.
