Like a flash of lightning October disappeared. The beautiful colours of fall are lying on the ground waiting for a day, when it doesn't rain or snow, to be raked up. It was a wet and dreary month but we can be glad we didn't have to shovel. Ghosts and goblins are put away for another year. I was reminiscing the other day about Halloween when I was young. Yes, I can still remember that far back! Do you remember when "Trick or Treat" actually meant you had to perform a trick of some sort before you got the apple, candy kiss, or maybe someone had made homemade candy or cookies. Who had to check your bag over before you dug in? I just heard this morning that some children are not permitted to wear their costumes to school but instead can wear orange and black. And life marches on! Monday, October 30th was certainly a busy day for seniors in Georgetown. It began at the Centre with a preview of Geri Fashions. I went! I saw! I bought! I wasn't the only one. At 1 p.m. they had a fashion show and the models from the Centre did an excellent job as they strutted presenting a fashion to the audience. Before intermission, and, after the show, draws were made for door prizes. Coffee / tea and goodies were available at intermission. In the evening, over 300 people sat down to a roast beef dinner presented by the Rotary Club of Georgetown for seniors over 70. I guess we know the age of quite a few people. Our own Seniors' Band entertained before and after dinner. It was a delicious meal and the 52nd time the Rotary Club has done this. I believe, on behalf of all of us who sat down to eat, I can take this opportunity to thank the Rotarians and all their helpers for such a pleasant evening. The calendar for November and December is filling up quickly. The November luncheon is on Nov. 14th. Make sure you have signed the sheet for this event located at the Front Desk. Another reminder to vote for local council members. You should have received your voter's card with information where and when to vote. The election is Monday, Nov. 13th with advance polls today. Check our local newspaper for information as to times and locations. The Annual Georgetown Seniors Bazaar is Saturday, November 18, 10 a.m to 2 p.m. There will be a bake table, children's table, raffle tickets, 50/50 draw, craft table and penny sale. Lunch and refreshments will also be available. Mark this date in your date book, save your money and come out top support your local Seniors Centre on Nov. 18th. Keep posted for important December events. Busy time of year. Seven weeks or 49 days till the shopping will be finished, the gifts are opened and Christmas is over. Now to keep healthy and get all this done, please take your flu shot when they become available. Come out to the Georgetown Seniors Centre! Get involved! Make new friends! Share in the golden years!
