Seniors enjoy Lunch and Learn

By Sandra Holmes

Over 80 seniors took part in Wells Gray Seniors Society’s Learn and Lunch program at the Elks Hall on Dec. 12.

They enjoyed Kay Knox’s slides and talk about recently reconnecting after 51 years with a student she taught sewing to living in the Arctic. Knox recently published her first book of memoirs, Gentle Journey.

Norma Watt read a delightful story called The Polar Express.

The Silvertones entertain all with festive music. The Elks provided soup and buns and goodies.

Thank you to all who contributed to making this event such a success. This popular program is supported by grants from United Way and New Horizons for Seniors.
