Last week was an event­ful week as we hosted two of the events for the Al­berta 55 Games. Both the Snooker and Scrab­ble were held on Fri­day and Satur­day and two of our mem­bers took part in the Snooker and Marcel LaPlante won a sil­ver medal for the 50+ and Al Bre­mer a Bronze for the 70+. Scrab­ble was played by 6 ladies and there were judges for each of the games. Ev­ery­one com­ple­mented on the venue and the lunch pro­vided by mem­bers.

A group of mem­bers went to Delia to cel­e­brate Ge­orge and Elsie Humphrey’s 70th wedding an­niver­sary, a great op­por­tu­nity to of­fer con­grat­u­la­tions on such a won­der­ful event.

On Tues­day the cen­tre held their An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing and voted 2 new mem­bers to the ex­ec­u­tive, Bar­bara Davidson as Sec­re­tary and Laura Clavette a Direc­tor, all oth­ers were re­turned for a fur­ther year. The trea­surer gave his yearly re­port which re­mains in good health and re­ported that the cen­tre has ap­plied for a grant to re­place the roof so that it keeps the build­ing in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion for years to come. In the past year we have had the bath­rooms im­proved to make them ac­ces­si­ble for the dis­abled, plus we have had new chairs and ta­bles, new sewing ma­chines to help the quilters and sev­eral items for the kitchen. Ev­ery­where is look­ing very nice, why not call in for cof­fee when you are pass­ing? And I just re­mind ev­ery­one floor shuf­fle­board starts again on Fri­day at 10:00 am in the Field House at the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity.

Bridge was played on Thurs­day evening and win­ners were 1st. - Jen­nie DeMille & Don Robert­son 4120. 2nd. - Jim Criger & Russ Chuprun 3270. 3rd. - Muriel & Dan McDer­mid 3050 points. We are now tak­ing names for the Crib Tour­na­ment on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 22. A meet­ing of the Travel Club will be on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 7 at 1:30 pm at the Drumheller Li­brary when we will be in­tro­duc­ing the next group of trips.
