Getting together for dinner and a show

The monthly senior's dinner, which took place at the Seniors' Hall in Nakusp.

Submitted by Andreea Myhal

The last Friday of every month is a special gathering time for the members of the Nakusp Senior Citizens Association (Branch #71). They get together for a meal, sometimes accompanied by other family members and entertainment.

Dinner was a delicious buffet catered by Deb Guest, with roast-beef as the highlight and various sides rounding out the culinary offerings on hand. The entertainment was provided by the Arrow Lakes String Ensemble and the Arrow Lakes Community Choir, each reprising their respective repertoire the Community Artists’ Concert held in mid-April.

Marilyn Massey commented separately on how pleased she was to take part of that evening’s entertainment and that the Senior’s Association is always open for artists to come and entertain their group during their regularly scheduled get-togethers. Those interested in this opportunity may contact Ms. Doreen DesRochers at 250-265-4102.

Four lucky attendees walked out with the prizes from the 50/50 and the three meat-draws, respectively (including a member of the choir) but overall, everyone had a great time.

For those interested, there will be a meeting on Friday, May 13, at 1:30 p.m. at the Senior Centre, where the new West Kootenay senior transportation coordinator, Dana Burgess from Nelson, will be introduced.
