We've added an "Upcoming Events" link to the top menu to make details of scheduled events more  accessible.  As occasions such as dinners or yard sales are planned, we'll announce them in "What's New" but also post the details on our Upcoming Events page so that you can refer to them easily as the event approaches.

Our spring yard sale was a great success again this year, raising over $800 for the Centre.  In addition to our own Rural 60+ tables, twelve other vendors rented tables, bringing a wide assortment of merchandise.  A huge thank-you goes to the members who volunteered at the sale and to those who donated baking or other items.

If you're a member of Rural 60 Plus and are willing to use your computer skills for our benefit, we're looking for someone to post routine updates on this site.  It doesn't take a lot of time and can be done either from home or from the Rural 60 office.  Anyone who is interested in learning more about this opportunity should contact the Centre.

The annual AGM is only a week away, and even if you didn't buy tickets for the supper, you can attend the meeting which is expected to begin just after 6 p.m. on Friday, May 17, at the Kakabeka Legion.  The meeting will include the election of officers for a 2-year term.  Six members have allowed their names to stand:  Lloyd Hanton, Bob MacMaster, Tina Guzzell, Merle Graham, Margaret Hess, and Gary MacDonald.  Of these candidates, 5 will be elected to help run our Centre along with the 5 existing Board members.

And another reminder for 2 upcoming events.  The Rural 60 Plus yard sale is 2 weeks away, on Saturday, May 25, from 10 to 1.  You can rent your own table by contacting the Centre or calling Diane  Buchan at 577-4844.  You could also drop off your items to be sold by the Rural 60 table and donations of baking would be especially welcome.

Watch for the volunteer sign-up sheet to be posted at the Centre for our annual clean-up day on Saturday, June 1.  Work will begin at 9:30 followed by a potluck lunch.

And finally, the next time you visit the Centre, check out the colourful 12-panel collage done by the Thursday watercolour class and framed by Eldon and Donna Kangas.  What a great addition to our main hall!
