Diners fill their plates with a delicious traditional turkey dinner.

Nakusp seniors have a grand time

The seniors outlasted this reporter who took her yawning self home to bed and left the wiser folks to party the night away.

Nakusp Seniors had a well-heeled and festive dinner Friday, Dec. 15 at the Legion Hall. The night saw the reins of presidency pass from Nancy Stewart to Heather Peters.

After the new president was announced, Stewart wished Peters “best of luck” in her new position and both were given a round of applause. The Seniors Association Senior Executive were sworn in after dinner (turkey with veggies, potatoes and gravy by Deb Guest).

After the moment of seriousness, Marie Wrede came in and demonstrated Zumba for the seniors. There were mixed responses to the latin-infused performance, and probably few recruits to the high-energy exercise, for whom ballroom dancing might have been a better tempo.

The neon-clad dancers were the introduction to the rest of the evening’s entertainment. Skits and songs were on the docket, one of which was a hilarious and very memorable rendition of “There’s a hole in my bucket” put on by an unrecognizable Dawna Denning and Doreen Durocher.
