Aldergrove seniors are ready to party

The OAP and Veterans and Seniors clubs have combined their resources to host a Christmas party for seniors

Christmas is fast approaching and there are no end sales, bazaars and parties. The OAP and Veterans and Seniors clubs have combined their resources to host a party for seniors, held each year at the Aldergrove Legion Hall. This year’s date is Monday, Dec. 3 at 1 p.m. and tickets are available at either club.

The Veterans and Seniors sale is this Saturday, Nov. 24 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. What a variety of items are offered: Christmas decorations, gift ideas, everything for someone starting out in housekeeping, and there are craft tables, silent auction tables, a fabulous bake table. To top it off you can socialize as you enjoy a hamburger or hot dog with coffee in the company of friends and neighbors.

The United Church tea and sale is on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 1 to 3 p.m., with all kinds of interesting things on sale.

The United Church Women’s wind-up party will be held at noon at the United Church, Tuesday, Dec. 4. There’s nothing like a catered dinner to wrap up the season.

Some of us seniors have been enjoying exercise classes held each Thursday morning at 9:30 a.m. Our instructor is very helpful and makes for an invigorating hour of muscle pulling and relaxing. Come and join us at the OAP Hall.

Never say there’s nothing for seniors to do in Aldergrove. It’s just a matter of taking part.

The Veterans and Seniors offer a good noon dinner, followed by cards, or crib on Tuesdays, dominoes on Thursdays, and whist on Fridays. A good time for socializing and discussing topics relevant to seniors, such as health.

Take it easy, seniors, as you prepare for the Christmas season — no falls, no overdoing anything, enjoy what you are able to do, and come out looking good in 2013. Happy Christmas and all the best in the new year.
