Tues­day, Jan­uary 3 we had our birthday party for the mem­bers whose birth­days fall Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary. We served cof­fee and tea with cake and ice cream. The en­ter­tain­ment was ex­cel­lent with JoAnne Moul­ton on pi­ano, Ernie Web­ster on clar­inet and sax and Fred Day­man play­ing gui­tar and singing a few songs. The ta­bles were nicely dec­o­rated with Christmas cen­ter­pieces and flow­ers. The door prize was won by Yvonne of Hil­lview Lodge. Thanks to all the vol­un­teers for their hard work. It was a lovely party. Our next party will be March 1 for March and April birth­days.

We have two very nice pool ta­bles and these can be used by mem­bers for a small charge. We are open Mon­day to Satur­day 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Ladies and men are welcome. Cof­fee is avail­able.
