Lynne Frizzle, coordinator for senior’s events organized by Wells Gray Country Seniors Society welcomed more than 40 seniors to the monthly luncheon held Aug. 9. After an inspirational talk by Vix Meyer about ways to gain confidence in ones life, a delicious lunch prepared by the Challengers was served. Following the lunch representatives from TRU conducting a study regarding Interior Health’s plans for repositioning funds to help keep seniors in their homes longer interviewed seven people who had experience with the health care system. The results of the study will be made available when the study is complete.  Thank you to the United Way for granting money to support this event. The next luncheon will be held at the Elk’s Hall on Sept. 13.

WGCSS is offering several field trips. On Wednesday Aug. 24 a bus leaving Evergeen Acres at 9 a.m. will take folks to the Gingsen Factory in Kamloops. Sunday Sept. 4 a bus will leave Evergreen at 11 a.m. and take people to the Barriere Fall Fair. There are limited seats and the bus tends to fill up quickly.

Thank you to Wells Gray Community Forest Corp for granting money to support the bus trips.  For more information about these events or other up and coming activities or to book a seat call 250-674-8185.

The Seniors’ Room at Dutch Lake Community Centre offers a quiet and comfortable space to locate information, read, use the computer or play games.
