Seniors' Rally by Charlotte Brown
On Saturday, June 3, the Parham Happy Travelers #698 hosted the annual Seniors Rally for zone 36. It was held at North Frontenac arena. The theme for the rally was western, almost all dressed in western style.
Twenty-one clubs attended, and approximately 266 members, plus guests. Parham’s Betty and Wayne Eves, members of the Old Tyme Fiddlers, entertained all from 8:30 to 10pm.
A moment’s silence was held for members who passed away, including Parham Club’s President Moe Bush in March, 2006. Mayor Bill MacDonald from Central Frontenac and Mayor Bill Lake from South Frontenac brought greetings to the clubs. Guest speaker Mary Coook, who has a column in the EMC paper, spoke on several different articles. Lanark’s Kitchen band played as members went through the line for dinner, which was served by caterers Pine Ridge from Harrowsmith. A lovely roast beef dinner. After lunch the Young family from Tweed entertained everyone for an hour with gospel and bluegrass music.
Albert Brown from Parham’s club won the award for oldest man, being 96 years young. Edna Robinson from Perth won oldest lady award, 96 years young.
Zone 36 President Ken Cunningham congratulated anyone having a birthday or anniversary. Many door prizes were given out, and three draws of $75 each for Share the Wealth draw.
The Parham Happy Travelers would like to thank Sharbot Lake Lions Club, Hinchinbrooke Fire Department, and anyone else who donated prizes and gave their time to help us at the Rally. Also, thanks to Brenda Garrett for the music she played. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves. See you next year in June. Have a great summer.Other Stories this Week View RSS feed
