Pi­o­neer Trail Cen­tre

The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN - Daisie Smith 403-823-7074

Sorry there wasn’t much news to re­port last week ex­cept one thing - on Satur­day, May 27, four of our mem­bers trav­elled to High River for the Al­berta 55 Plus fall Provin­cial qual­i­fiers for Floor Shuf­fle­board. Linda Traquair, Mar­garet Neilsen, played on the 55 Plus team; Mike and Bar­bara Barker played on the 70 Plus team. They were not suc­cess­ful but had a lot of fun, met some great peo­ple and had a great lunch.

On Tues­day, May 30 we held our monthly meet­ing with three guests at­tend­ing. Erica Laycock from Al­berta Health Ser­vices pre­sented the Healthy Liv­ing pro­gram and left some leaflets as well as her card. If any­one is in­ter­ested, please drop in and pick up her card.

Heather Col­berg is let­ting her name stand for Mayor for the Town of Drumheller and is ask­ing for in­put from se­niors in our area.

Rose Poul­son gave a re­port of the ac­tiv­i­ties for Se­niors Week which is be­ing held June 5 to 11. It looks like the se­niors will have a busy week with a pan­cake break­fast, games, en­ter­tain­ment, bar­be­cue, etc. We send out a big thank you to all those peo­ple who hon­our us.

Our roof will be fin­ished this week which we will be very happy about (no more pails to catch the drips on a rainy day).

We are in need of a vol­un­teer host or host­ess for Thurs­day and Fri­day af­ter­noons. Please phone 403-826-6565 or Daisie at 403-823-7074 to put your name on the list.

On June 1 we had a group of se­niors from Cal­gary (walk­ing club) come in for cof­fee and snacks.

The Travel Club has a trip to Saska­toon Farm planned for June 14. Phone Jan­ice at 403-463-2547 if you would like to go.

We have a very large se­lec­tion of cook­books, so come in and check them out and en­joy a cup of cof­fee and a chat.

On Fri­day, June 16 from 11:30 - 1:00 p.m., we will be cel­e­brat­ing Fa­ther’s Day with a bar­be­cue. For more in­for­ma­tion, look for the posters. En­joy Se­nior’s Week. “Life is brief and frag­ile. There is no time to leave im­por­tant words un­said or deeds un­done.”
