Next Lunch Wednesday, June 26th “The first 40 years of childhood are always the hardest.” – QuotesIdeas We had a good ham and scalloped potatoes lunch in April, topped off with fudgsicles for dessert (skim milk to counter all those lovely potatoes). At time of writing, we’re looking forward to meeting another Mount Pleasant author at our May lunch. Ken Vanberg will speak about his new book, Get Rich Buy It Tomorrow. If you aren’t a senior, we hope you will join us after lunch for tea and coffee to hear Ken’s presentation. Although it’s snowing this weekend (it’s April now), we’re planning for the summer and, we hope, many games of bocce. Our annual picnic in the park, sponsored by The City of Calgary and MPCA, is set for July. Costco has given us a generous gift card which we may use for a bbq chicken lunch. The fun, good food, and good company happens every month. We’re happy to see the increased number of people who come to our lunches and especially to hear the volume of conversation. These lunches started to give community seniors a social opportunity, a reason to get out of their houses, renew old friendships, and make new ones. Many thanks to Mount Pleasant for sponsoring the lunches and to all of the volunteers who make them possible. That said, we know there are more seniors living in the community who would enjoy meeting their neighbours and a hot meal each month. We just can’t find you! If you are a senior living in Mount Pleasant or if you know of one, please get in touch with Linda at (403) 289-8390 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll learn about our lunches, day trips, exercise class, book club, and games session—all good ways to expand your world. If you need a ride, we’ll arrange that for you. We look forward to seeing new as well as familiar faces at our get-togethers.
