The Island Seniors group provides the dogs and burgers, Port is setting up; if you live north of Tlell bring desserts, if south of Tlell bring salads. Seniors means 50-plus years, so bring your friends and visitors, but bring food for them too, we’ve noticed that we seniors have good lunch-time appetites!Just please don’t bring kids or dogs. There will be games, music, fun and food. This is our summer event where all the seniors can get together.This is a free event so to off-set the costs a bit please try to bring something for the Loonie auction, these are always so much fun. I know a jam basket is already being prepared!We are hoping that one person from each community will step up to help with clean up, many hands makes less work! If you need a vegetarian dog or burger phone our Chef Dez at 557- 4436, for easier questions call Fran 559-4691 or Marilyn 557-8548 or Loonie questions call Carole 637-2394 It will be fun- carpool, call a neighbour for a ride or to offer one, every community attends, well maybe not Rose Harbour they are extra busy in the summers!Arising from a recent Seniors All Island meeting was regarding ferry cutback effects, less expensive accommodations came be found at the Pioneer Hostel in Rupert and NWCC in Terrace, so check them out and see if that might work for you.
