OCTOBER HAPPENINGS AT THE CALEDON SENIORS CENTRE
By Margaret & Bill Cunning
Spring and summer have their beauty, but there is something about a misty October morn that stirs the soul. As the mists wane and yellow leaves scud across our paths we give ‘thanks’ for the abundance of seasons past, but delight in the glow of this ‘golden month’.
October is a month of fall fairs, cider making and local craft and art events. We at the Centre celebrate the season with our own CRAFT SALE, BAKE SALE & SILENT AUCTION. It all happens on Saturday, 26th October and runs from 8:00am – 2:00pm. This is a very well attended event so come early and maybe start the day with a Bacon Buttie for breakfast before hitting the BAKE SALE & CRAFT SALE. We always have a fabulous array of home baked goodies and handmade crafts, so get a head start on your Christmas shopping. Next, head to the SILENT AUCTION where you maybe will find a gem to bid on, and from there head to the Tea Room for a cuppa and rest up to consider those bids. Make sure your last bids are in before the SILENT AUCTION closes. Hamburgers are available if you feel peckish with all that shopping. Come and bring a friend or two as we love to show off our wonderful Seniors Centre.
October would not be the same without a trip to the SHAW FESTIVAL. The luxury coach leaves the Centre at 9:20am on Tuesday, October 15th, and we will lunch at QUEEN’S LANDING and then on to see GUYS & DOLLS at the theatre. The cost is $133. We have a waiting list at the present time.
On Thursday, October 17th we have a trip planned to CASINO RAMA. The luxury coach leaves the Centre at 9:20am and will return at 5:30pm. We will have a 5 hour stay at the Casino and a Buffet Lunch. The cost is $8.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31st – the BIG TRIP OF THE YEAR TO CHINA FOR 11 DAYS. The cost is $2,650.
We have two new programs at the Centre we would like to highlight. TAP DANCING FOR BEGINNERS on Tuesdays at 10:45am and, LUNCH & LEARN program starting Thursdays, October, 24th @ 11:00am, and offered once every month.
