Seniors’ Network host strawberry tea on June 5

Aldergrove Seniors Social Network will be hosting their annual Strawberry Tea.

Seniors Week is the first week in June, so mark your calendar for June 5. That’s the day that the Aldergrove Seniors Social Network will be hosting their annual Strawberry Tea.

The event will take place at the Kinsmen Community Centre on Tuesday, June 5 from 1 to 3 p.m. to honour our Aldergrove Seniors. There will be great entertainment, refreshments, including strawberry shortcake and ice cream, door prizes – and it’s all free.

This year Seniors Social Network will also be having a craft table where you can purchase homemade articles for gift giving.

The Seniors Network Meeting is held on the fourth Monday of the month. and we invite all seniors to come and join us for a friendly afternoon. Membership fee is only $15 a year.

Our Craft Club meets every Tuesday from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Kinsmen Centre. Over the years this group has knitted squares and made blankets, which have been donated to the Salvation Army, Ishtar Transition House and many local needy families.

We would like to thank the many local residents for their kind donations of yarn. This is an ongoing project and donations are always appreciated.

The Food and Friends Luncheons, held on the second and fourth Mondays from 11:30 to 1 p.m., have been well attended. The meals are prepared by Bob’s Steakhouse in  Aldergrove and include soup, salad, wraps or sandwiches, dessert, tea and coffee for $3 and meals are followed by an interesting speaker. For catering purposes you are asked to call the Kinsmen Centre and let them know if you plan to attend.

The next Senior Trip will be on May 17 to  Doc’s Canadian Carving Gallery at Hope. and  on June 21 there  will be a trip to  Aldor Acres Dairy Farm. Call the Kinsmen Centre for further information: 604-856-2899.
