Once again the Women Realtors of Royal LePage created their popular centre pieces for the free Seniors Christmas Dinner at the 100 Mile Community Hall on Dec. 3.

We do this every year for the Senior’s Dinner,” says volunteer and realtor Gisela Janzen, “and have been making the centrepieces for many, many years.”

Working hard on the top floor of the South Cariboo Business Centre, the ladies intertwined the bases with fragrant smelling branches and a variety of colourful Christmas ornaments.

This year, the wreaths were built on neatly cut wooden bases, which were donated by Sitka Log Homes Inc.

The annual Senior Christmas Dinner was hosted by the Rotary Club of 100 Mile House and Friends.

Every year, the seniors are able to take the centrepieces home with them after the dinner, Janzen says.

This year, the women made 83 wreaths for the dinner, with two wreaths per table.
