CARNDUFF — Carnduff’s Friendship Centre’s executive team does its best to provide activities for the seniors around town. It’s open on Mondays and Thursdays for card players and every Saturday for Bingo.
Before COVID hit, it was the scene for potlucks every other month and often attracted around 25 people. The potlucks have not yet resumed, but will shortly.
On June 16, close to 25 seniors and senior wannabees met for their annual Chester Chicken lunch. Because of COVID, this was the first time since 2019. The meal consisted of fried chicken, potato wedges, coleslaw and buns, along with coffee. It was all topped off with an ice cream cone.
Elda Duffus told a joke or two to launch the lunch and then read a Father’s Day poem.
All in all, it was a very pleasant gathering and gave people an opportunity to become reacquainted after a few years of social distancing.
