The Ayer’s Cliff Unity Fifty Plus Club
The Ayer’s Cliff Unity Fifty Plus Club met on February 13 in the Beulah United Church hall.
President Linda Grenon welcomed everyone and wished us a Happy Valentine’s party. There were lots of red hearts, candies and flowers decorating the tables, thanks to May Cunnington. Linda thanked Phil, Nancy, May and Ben for setting up. Another Thank You to Phil and Nancy for organizing and taking on the January meeting while Linda was away. “Way to go Phil.”
We are pleased to announce that five new members joined our club. Welcome to our group. They are Charlotte Chamitof, Jane Pierce, Eileen Dezan, Jan Dezan and Jean Caty. Guests this month were Danielle Carron, Patricia Wintle and Jim Mackay.
Linda’s opening Joke: “Why did the Banana go out with a Prune .... Because he couldn’t find a Date!”
Rev. Lee Ann Hogle asked the Blessing. Thank you Lee Ann.
Thirty-six members and three guests sat down for the delicious meal of chicken in gravy over a flakie biscuit, peas & carrots, mashed potatoes, salad and beet pickles. All served by our very own Cindy from Le Bon D and her helper David.
The Half & Half was drawn, the winners were Jean Cass, Jean Caty and Barb Wintle.
Our Treasurer Jean Cass read the Treasurers Report for the year 2017 showing a favourable balance.

A big Thank You to our cleanup crew. Each month they turn up for kitchen duty and do a great job as usual.
Thirty people stayed for BINGO. A table was covered with prizes, Linda did the calling, and the happy winners carried home their loot. A lot of fun and laughter was shared by most, but we did hear a sigh or two from those who had very little activity on their cards.
See you all next month. March 6 for *SUGAR ON SNOW.*
