Interior Health to host Flu Clinic at 50+ Activity Centre

The 50+ Activity Centre is gearing up for the season of beautiful colours, crisp weather, turkey, pumpkins and of course, Halloween.

Speaking of Halloween, we welcome you to join us this month for two Halloween themed activities. On Friday, October 25 we will be hosting our Halloween Party Potluck and will be starting the evening off with a Halloween dish contest. There will be prizes for most creative and ghoulish entrees and desserts.

After the potluck the evening will continue with fun activities, music, dancing and a costume contest (yes, more prizes). We will also have a cash bar available serving beer, wine and cider. Come and show off your creative talents or come and vote for your favourite foods and costumes. The evening is guaranteed to be a lot of fun. Attendees are asked to bring their own cutlery, dishes and an entrée or dessert to share. Everyone is welcome, but come early to secure your seat as this will be a popular event.

On Thursday, October 31 you won’t want to miss our special Halloween Bingo. The bingo will feature the same great gaming fun with some special Halloween treats and surprises, including prizes for the top three costumes. We will also have a potluck of appetizers and sweets, so do bring something to share. Bingo takes place every Thursday night. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and bingo starts at 6:45 p.m. Marie Langlois was the winner of the most recent jackpot of $800 and the current jackpot is already over $300.

Zumba Gold classes will resume October 21 and will take place every Monday through December 16 from 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. The cost to participate is $5 per session. RSVP to Aisha at 780-805-6388.

On Tuesday, October 29 Interior Health will be hosting a Flu Clinic at the 50+ Activity Centre. Flu shots will be available from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Our September potluck was a great success. The food was good and the dance floor was full. In fact, about a dozen people were still dancing after all the tables and chairs had been put away. We are grateful to Paul and Elaine of Just Friends for the wonderful entertainment. We look forward to having them back.

We had a couple of milestone birthday parties celebrated at the 50+ this month, and why not? We have a great venue for a variety of functions available for full and half day rentals. If you are interested in booking space, contact the office for further information.

Although Thanksgiving has now passed, we the directors of the 50+ Activity Centre would like to express how thankful we are for all the wonderful memories we have made with our members and guests thus far, and look forward to those memories yet to be created.
