Festival of trees draws appreciative crowd

Maidstone Drop In Centre: Proceeds support home care, long-term care
Seniors playing cards
Getting together for fun and fellowship is always enjoyed at Maidstone Drop In Centre.

MAIDSTONE ‑ Cribbage was played at the Maidstone Drop In Centre Nov. 22 with high score going to Kevin Newton and low to Dorothy Schwartz.

A number of seniors enjoyed the festival of trees held at the Legion Hall Nov. 23 to Nov. 27.

The hall was attractively decorated and the trees each had a different theme and each one was beautiful. A hugely laden bake table drew lots of customers. A memory tree with ornaments to remember loved ones who have passed on was a nice gesture.

Money raised at the event goes to local home care needs and comfort items for long-term care residents. About 150 people attended and the door prize was won by Tyler Johnstone.

A lot of work for a group of volunteers and a big thank you to all how donated items to be bid on.
