THE THRIFTY SMILE CARD PROGRAM

 

Most of you may know we apply each year for grants from the Thrifty Smile Card program.  Once again we have received funding to a total of $2500 which will go towards upgrading our sound system to comply with some new regulations on broadcasting bands.
 
We have cards in the office that you can pick up so that your purchases at Thrifty’s will contribute to the money they are willing to provide.  Briefly the way the program works is that you put money on the card at Thrifty’s in amounts of your choice.  For every $100 our members spend using their Thrifty’s Smile Card the Association receives $5.00 towards the amount that has been granted.  It is a really good way to raise funds as well as support Thrifty’s who contribute so much to various community groups.  If you shop at Thrifty’s please consider picking up a Smile Card from the CB 55+ Office and support your Association.  We record the number of the card you are assigned in case it is lost and needs to be canceled.
 
Thanks for your support.
 
David (Docherty),
Past President.

CHINESE NEW YEAR LUNCHEON

Our annual Chinese New Year luncheon was held Tuesday, February 6th.  Great food from the Halibut House and wonderful company with friends and neighbours.   Many thanks to the volunteers who set-up, served, and cleaned up after the luncheon.  Without our volunteers this event would not have taken place.  Looking forward to next year!!
