News from the Silver Threads Seniors Club

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone of our members and volunteers a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We are having so much fun doing all the things that make us happy to be a part of Christmas. The decorating, the food, the parties and get togethers with friends and family fill our days and evenings. We are generous with giving to those who may not have as much as we do and may be finding it a little tough at this time of year. That is what the season is all about, and it brings out the best in all of us. Let us be Joyful and Thankful.

The Club will be hosting a New Years Eve Dance this year. The music is being played by Bob Madill and Bob Landry for a fun evening. If you like the old rock and roll songs then this is the place for you and your group. The cost is only $10 and the dress is casual, food will be served and we are going to have a leisurely fun filled evening. Phone the office to get tickets or place your name on a list for tickets at the door. The time will be 8pm to midnight. Lets hope the weather co-operates for the celebration.

This Holy Season (Catherine Pulsifer 2017)

As Christmas approaches we feel the winter air,

May your heart be warmed by feelings that you share

Take the time to tell your love ones just how much you care.

This time of year is a time to treasure

One which can bring so much pleasure

With so much love it is hard to measure.

Special gifts to be found

And beauty all around

With music filling the sound.

Oh Christmas brings such joy

To so many little girls and boys

As they look forward to Santa and new toys.

May the world never forget

How this all began, the reason

that we celebrate this holy season.
