Georgetown Seniors Centre The month of June was certainly a very busy one for seniors, especially the week of June 19-24. Regular activities held at the Centre were moved to the Gellert Centre so that visitors could see all the ways in which we can be active and perhaps provide a motivation to those who need to get up off the couch and take part. A delicious barbecue chicken supper ended the week for about 130 Georgetown Seniors. Dinner included chicken (supplied by Maple Lodge Farms), baked potato, potato salad, coleslaw, and caesar salad. For dessert we got to make our own ice cream sundaes. Following dinner the 50/50 winner was announced and those who had the highest bid on the silent auction items were announced and asked to pay up. The band played for a sing-song and dancing while many scurried off to play bid euchre, I know two very hard-working ladies, Adriana and Sherry, who are happy things have settled down some for the summer months. Thanks to both of you for all your great efforts on behalf of the Georgetown Seniors Centre. We really do appreciate it. Another group that deserve our thanks are all the volunteers, no matter in what capacity you help to keep our Centre a lively place and some days it is a jumpin'! S.A.L.T. presentation of "Power of Attorney" was well attended. Through video and discussion two very important points were brought out. When designating your Power of Attorney it is important to talk with multiple members of you immediate family and trusted friends. Always seek a lawyer's advice. Make informed and well thought out decisions. It is your wish as to what you want done with your savings and property if you should become unable to care for yourself. Not necessarily a topic we want to discuss but nevertheless we all need to be aware. S.A.L.T. (Seniors and Law Enforcement Together) is a newly formed Halton Hills committee. To become a member call Wilf Gray at 905-873-6751. He will be happy to discuss their programs and even better, take your name as a volunteer on the committee. Summer is here at last and with it comes a quiet time for the Centre. Cards, shuffle board, crafts, Mingle and Chat, carpet bowling are the programs that continue during July and August at their regular times. Tai chi will continue as well but will be practice sessions so that we don't forget. At present they are meeting at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday but that time may change in a few weeks. The Centre will be open at its usual time from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It is cool. There is always someone around to share a cup of tea or coffee and conversation. Please continue to drop in over the summer and keep caught up on the news. Get involved! Make new friends! Share in the good times!
