Seniors enjoyed a day of fun and games in Falher Feb. 28, which drew more than 80 people from the region.

Carpet bowling, cribbage and pool were the big games at Club Alouette.

“We had 82 people playing in the three sports,” says club secretary-treasurer Diane Dentinger, who co-ordinated the event.

Seniors from Falher welcomed visitors from Girouxville, Donnelly, McLennan, Nampa, Eaglesham and High Prairie areas, she says.

“It’s an annual activity day that brings seniors together for exercise and fellowship and a bit of friendly competition,” Dentinger says.
