REDVERS - Nearly 150 residents attended a free senior supper hosted by the Redvers & District Lions Club at the Golden Age Centre.

A pulled pork and coleslaw supper was prepared by Rylan and Cindy Weir. The Town of Redvers provided their handy van with Sandy Russell volunteering her time to pick up any seniors who needed a ride to the event. Lions members also prepared and served the meal.

“A big thank-you goes out to the Redvers Lions Club,” said Mary Luyten, who was one of the seniors who attended. “It was a delicious meal and greatly appreciated by all of us who attended.

“We also understand that the silver collection at the door was donated to the Golden Age Centre, of which I have been a member of for many, many years. Thank you and I really hope that the Lions Club can make this an annual event.”

Redvers Lions president Edmond Aime was pleased with the turnout.

“Seniors are the backbone of any community and our club wanted to show our appreciation and give something back,” said Aime. “The event was well attended and from all accounts greatly appreciated. We collected $1,400 in donations at the door and have given the Golden Age Centre the entire proceeds. Our Lions Club is extremely interested in making this an annual event.”

The Redvers & District Lions Club was chartered in 2010. They presently have 14 members who are extremely active in their community. Candice Smith is vice president, Michelle Jensen the secretary and Jade Frecon the treasurer.
