Seniors Christmas dinner tickets available now

Local Rotary Club and Friends of Seniors preparing for great party

The Rotary Club of 100 Mile House and Friends of Seniors are hosting their annual Seniors Christmas Turkey Dinner at 100 Mile Community Hall on Dec. 6.

The free dinner is for seniors only. However, tickets are hard to come by, so folks need to get them right away.

Tickets are available now at Royal LePage 100 Mile Realty at 96 Highway 97 in 100 Mile House (across the highway from A&W). For more information, call 250-395-3424.

The local Rotary Club (and friends) have been hosting the dinner for years thanks to the generous support of local businesses and volunteers.

It’s a lot of fun for not only the seniors, but also the folks who show up to serve them year after year, says Shawna Norton, key organizer and Rotarian.

The hall will be packed with area seniors who will enjoy a great turkey meal with all the trimmings and desserts, refreshments and some great entertainment.

The event is so popular the club will open the doors at 5 p.m. (dinner served at 6), so people can get their seats and save some for friends.

The turkeys will be cooked by Save-On-Foods, says key organizer and Rotarian Shawna Norton, adding other businesses provide a lot of the other necessities for the meal.

This year, the seniors will be entertained by the The Classmates and the Rotarians have a few other acts lined up.

Royal LePage 100 Mile Realty staff members will go all out on the centrepieces they make and donate, as they have for years. Many lucky seniors will get to take them home to decorate their own tables.

“The dinner is a great tradition and it’s one of the most fun events we do. They are so appreciative and it’s just a great feeling,” says Norton.

“We don’t have a hard time getting volunteers for it because everyone loves to do it.”

She urges seniors who want to got to the dinner to get over to Royal LePage 100 Mile Realty and pick up their tickets as soon as possible.
