New Hazelton, SILVER THREADS BR # 100

Report for Regional Meeting April/18

Membership is IQ people. Still meeting at Roche view Lodge. New Hazelton.
We have been quite active from October through to the present time.
We meet once a month after & sometimes before we meet and enjoy a meal together. In Feb. we went out to a café in Kitwanga before our mtg. & then came back for the mtg. Usually, we choose a café in New Hazelton.
Every Monday night we gather together with other community members for a potluck supper.

Tuesday, several of us meet together for Elder college and yoga.

Crib had to be changed to Friday afternoons because some of the seniors don’t like driving at night.

We have movie night twice a month.

Last Summer we sold baked goods and water and juice, chips & cheezies at the country Market to raise funds to replace our entertainment money. On Sunday it seemed to be cloudy with wind or rain, too cold to enjoy.

We attended the Banff Film Festival in Smithers this past year. Sorry that they can’t hold it in the theatre anymore, it was so much easier to watch there.

Last Fall we lined up a number of people to travel on the train to Pr. Rupert to stay for a day or 2. The train was 7 hrs. late & only 3 people ended up going & they went by car.

This Spring we held a Basic Foot Clinic. We had a good attendance as it was Free. We hope to hold another April 30th but there will be a charge this time.

None of us plans on attending the provincial assoc. mtg. but hope to have a proxy again this year. The $500.00 offered by the Prov. Assoc. would help some with travel but there are meals and accommodation to consider as well.

Things are happening in the Hazeltons.The Recreation Center is going up, so we have visions of walking in there during the long winter months. Also, we could look at playing floor curling. I understand that the Hagwilget Reserve is planning on building a bowling alley in New Hazelton in the near future so that is another activity we can look forward to.
