South-end seniors’ lunch special

  • Dec. 22, 2010 11:00 a.m.

Submitted by Fran Fowler–Great turn out for Queen Charlotte’s Seniors of Skidegate Inlet Christmas luncheon, hosted by the community club and funded primarily by the Gwaii Trust Queen Charlotte Christmas fund.About 100 meals were served (90 in the hall and the rest went home to those who didn’t make the event and had neighbours who could deliver their meals).Once again Kelly and her crew produced and served a terrific turkey feast. All of them are very appreciated.Sandspit hosted a loonie auction as a fundraiser for the Island Seniors’ Games, coming up in Sandspit this spring. Three computers were in use; onedisplayed the QC Seniors’ Bench Project (inventorying and identifying gaps) a second played the first story of the Saving and Sharing Our Stories Project, Ramana’s walk in from Port Louis to Ian Lake (we want your story too, starting in January) and a third computer showed photos of seniors’ events over the past decade.There were some door prizes (homemade jams) while we waited for the special entertainment, The Littlest Choir, which was Wendy and Helen accompanied by the four year old Child Centre kids! This was a treat and gave us an amazing age range in the room!This year we had an In Memoriam List of those islanders who had died during 2010. Most communities except Sandspit were represented.Thanks to all who worked so hard, from writing grants, to decorating, to washing up and everything in between and of course those who came and shared their time together.It was a really fine event. Make sure you come next year if you were born before 1951 (nobody really checks your age!) We can make room for everyone!
