There was plenty of excitement at the 50 Plus Activity Centre in Lake Cowichan Saturday, Sept. 30 as they kicked off their new season with a Welcome Back Fall Dance.
Music for the evening came from the Lake Cowichan Tenors, the Canadian Suite Duo, and the Goodtime Boys and volunteer cooks Tom Murchie, who made a mean chili, and Dawn Brown, who made two different quiches, stepped up for the evening, along with a lot of volunteers, who decorated the place and organized the fun event.
Next up at the Centre is a Thanksgiving Potluck Banquet on Saturday, Oct. 14, followed on Saturday, Oct. 28 by a Halloween Masquerade Dance for 19 years and older featuring music by Jan Matthews.
Don’t forget that lunches are served at the centre now Monday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.
