Coaticook area Senior Citizen’s Club
On October 16, we had our meeting at the Elie Carrier Center. We had a good number of members and four visitors.
Our president, Penny Fowler, presented Mr. Marcalexandre Fonda from the office of the Honorable Mrs. Bibeau, federal deputy of Compton. He talked to us about the assistance offered by the riding office for federal services. The office is at 175 Queen St., Sherbrooke and we should not hesitate to contact them when we have activities taking place in the region.
We had a proposal by Shirley Desruisseaux: that the CASCC give a donation of $200 to the Dixville Cemetery in memory of Mrs. Barbara Bellows. It was accepted by everyone.
Get-well cards will be sent to Joan Baldwin and Doris Beaudin.
Before the meal, Shirley Desruisseaux said the prayer. Ellen Baily had also prepared a jar with chocolate and everyone was invited to take a guess at the amount. The winner was Dorothy Babbin and the runner up Marry Cutler.
All the members had some Halloween decoration on them. We all participated in bringing something and some ‘lucky’ members were also dressed with all the rest of the deco remaining. A vote for the best costume was done and the winners were Arnold Mackeage, Pat Bryant, Robert Shepherd, Delma Fowler and Lydia May.
The participation prizes were won by André Veillette and Micheline Vachon. The door prizes by Suzanne Martin, Jim Bailey, Ed Bryant and Dorothy Babbin.
Next month’s meeting is on November 20 at the Elie Carrier Center and the meal will be pork filet.
There will be a short conference by Serge Fournier of the CAB, he is temporarily replacing Jade St-martin. Someone will be phoning you to see who are coming.
