Connect with old friends

‘Come meet old friends and make some new ones’ is the slogan of the Seniors Only free lunches. The first one was on Tuesday, Mar. 15 and proved to be a great success, much better than organizers had anticipated.

This first lunch was funded by Community Services, says organizer Eunice Royle. But future lunches will have to be self-supporting.This means “we will have to come up with some ingenious ways of raising the funds,” she says. “We can do it.”

They did raise sufficient funds to pay for the next Seniors Only free lunch, which is planned for May 17, again in the Legion hall.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the preparation of this lunch,” Royle says. “But the greatest reward is knowing how much the seniors enjoyed it.”

They handed out questionnaires during the first lunch, and people indicated they would return for the next one, she says. Anyone interested in coming to the lunches can call Eunice at 604-796-9841 or Betty at 604-796-1409.
