Stanstead Journal - - CLASSIFIEDS - Ayer's Cliff

It was a warm sunny day when the Ayer's Cliff Fifty Plus met on May 3rd, 2016, with the feel­ing that Spring was here at last. Linda greeted ev­ery­one with her usual friendly wel­come and wish­ing all the mother's present, a Happy Mother's Day. Linda thanked May, Ben, Mel and Phyl for help­ing her set up and dec­o­rate. Also a big thank you to Tina Whip­ple for al­ways play­ing se­lec­tions on the piano for our en­joy­ment. Thank you Tina. To those faith­ful ones for clean­ing up and wash­ing the dishes. Thanks. A Get Well card was passed around for all to sign for Edna Meigs. We are hop­ing you'll be feel­ing bet­ter soon. As usual Linda found a few cute jokes. Es­pe­cially the one that got us laugh­ing was a lit­tle girl and lit­tle boy potato out on a date, get­ting ad­vice from her mother. This is a keeper. Phil Ker­win asked the Bless­ing and then drew the ta­ble num­bers We had four guests join us to­day. Bar­bara Brown, who is here vis­it­ing her mother Irene Brown, Geral­dine Smith, Jim Mackay and also in­vited guest speaker Sergeant Pa­trice Gre­goire. They were joined by forty nine mem­bers to a de­li­cious meal pre­pared by Cindy from Bon-D Restau­rant, which was en­joyed by all. Thank you Cindy. A Thank you card was signed and af­ter lunch Linda called cindy from the kitchen and pre­sented her with a beau­ti­ful hang­ing plant, and thank­ing Cindy for the de­li­cious meals she's served for the past year. Our Club takes the sum­mer off, but Cindy will be back serv­ing us again in Septem­ber. With Leta Dustin at the piano, we all joined in singing Happy Birth­day to Tina Whip­ple, Lois Cooper, Ben Cun­ning­ton, Linda Grenon, Wel­don Dustin, El­iz­a­beth Red­path, Jean Cass and Jim Mackay. Then the lovely birth­day cake made by Jean Cass was served with ice cream for all to en­joy. The half-and-half was di­vided and the first ticket was drawn by Sergeant Gre­goire. The lucky win­ner was Mary Levasseur, sec­ond to Geral­dine Smith and third to Bar­bara Smith. The door prizes were won by Lloyd Smith, John Hodge, Shirley Des­ruis­seaux and Lois Cooper. The ladies wrote their names on a slip of pa­per and put in a lit­tle bag at the end of their ta­ble. Two names were drawn from each bag. The lucky win­ners won the pretty pot­ted flower cen­ter piece on their ta­ble. Win­ners were Jean Cass, Mar­i­lyn Lawand, Lois Dobb, Pearl Good­sell, Norma MacK­in­non, Dina Antink, Irene Brown, Beth An­der­son and Chris­tine Hodge. A spe­cial Mother's Day gift was won by San­dra Dezan. To con­clude the af­ter­noon, Sgt. Pa­trice Gre­goire showed us a video and gave a talk on how Se­niors can avoid be­ing fraud over the tele­phone or com­puter. We were warned never to give out any in­for­ma­tion or num­bers no mat­ter how they try to scare or pres­sure you. Al­ways hang up and call the credit card com­pany or the bank you deal with. It was very in­ter­est­ing and in­for­ma­tion we all should know. Linda thanked Sgt. Gre­goire and in­vited him to join us again with an­other topic. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all our win­ners and Thanks to ev­ery­one who helped to make this a su­per en­joy­able day. See you June 7th. for Bar B Q chicken, and don't for­get your sal­ads.
