2016 River Bourgeois Senior’s 50+ Club President’s Report.
At this time it is necessary to thank all those who work so hard year after year in making the club a success. Thanks to our Secretary, Donna and our Treasurer, Sharon for their continuous dedication to the club. Thanks to Danny and Kenneth for keeping our building in good repair, and Emily who sends Get Well and Sympathy Cards.
We held two Merchandise Bingo’s besides our regular weekly Cribbage game. The Club and community members enjoyed the monthly music sessions of “The Kitchen Ceilidh” with Edna and Jerry and Friends. We all enjoyed the Chinese Christmas Dinner.
Theresa Sampson represented our Club at the Volunteer Dinner last year and Donna Babin will be this years representative.
We have 128 members now, but sadly since the last meeting we lost 3 members. Therese Pottie, Vera and Anselam Sampson. If we could have a moment of silence.
We received a grant from New Horizons for the heat pump for the main floor, the air conditioner we had will be put in the exercise room downstairs and can be put on as needed.
On behalf of the Club, I want to thank each and everyone of you for being part of this great organization.
Also, a special thank you to Sharon for taking over when I got sick.
