The Clearwater Friendly Club celebrated its 51st birthday last week with its monthly potluck lunch and a special tip of the hat to the Silvertones band.
The Silvertones, which is comprised of Jack Perry, Betty Schoult, Lloyd Smith and Mary Smith, has provided the musical entertainment for the events each month year round at Evergreen Acres and were honoured with a special cake before hitting the stage.
“We thanked the Silvertones for doing what they do for seniors,” said Joanne Mackenzie, vice president of the Friendly Club.
“They also go over and play for the older seniors at Forestview Place.”
Another reason the Friendly Club holds its monthly potlucks is to give the residents at Evergreen Acres the opportunity to socialize without having to break the bank or travel.
Roughly 25 people turned out for last week’s event and Mackenzie noted the club doubled its membership over last year and the group is always welcome to more people signing up.
The only criteria for joining is one has to be more than 60 years old and enjoy good food and music.
