Happy New Year everyone. Have you already broken all those well-intended New Year's resolutions? Our main topic of conversation seems to be the weather. Granted it has been a very unusual winter. No matter where we look on the continent, the weather has been out of the ordinary. My feeling is that the global warming is coming faster than we think or want to recognize. With the holiday season over normal life is returning to the Centre. This was the week paid programs resumed for the winter-- T'ai Chi, Exercise, Line Dancing, etc. It is not too late to join up for anyone of them. Due to a lack of interest, the luncheon on Tuesday, Jan. 9th was cancelled. Perhaps people felt they had not worn off all the huge meals they had eaten in the last two weeks. The next luncheon on Tuesday, February 13th is a very important one. Following lunch, at approximately 1 p.m. the Annual General Meeting will be held. This is your opportunity to learn how the Centre is doing and to express your personal opinions on its operations. Mark this important date on your calendars. Six members of the Board of Directors will be retiring and their spots will need to be filled. If you have any thought to running for one of these spots, please give your name to Ted Thompson to add to his list. It only involves one meeting a month. Now, all this, brings me to another point. Fees for 2007 are due now and may be paid any time at the front desk. You will need proof of current membership to be able to vote at the AGM in February. Happy 80th birthday wishes go out to three of our members who celebrated this special day-- Miles Gilson, Sheila Ward, and Roy Ballentine. If there are any I did not know about we wish you Happy Birthday as well. We wish you many more such wonderful milestones. Get your dancing shoes on! Saturday, Feb. 10th will be a Valentine's Beef Dinner and dance at The Georgetown Seniors Centre. Dinner will be at 5 p.m. and dancing starts at 7 p.m. All this for only $13 per person. Call up all your friends and come out for a great time. If you wish to come for the dancing only, the cost is $10 each. Our own Georgetown Seniors Band will supply music. Get your tickets early, as space is limited. Once more I say, come out to the Georgetown Seniors Centre. Get involved! Make new friends! Share in the good years!
