A meal of shepherd’s pie, dessert and a few brain teasers made for an enjoyable lunch at the Club des Pionniers in Donnelly.

The Smoky River Family and Community Support Services held Conversation Corner for seniors at the club at lunch time on Sept. 22.

“The idea is to keep them mentally and physically well,” says Jean Moore-Lemoine, the Community Development Coordinator for Smoky River FCSS.

“It’s a way to let people know what FCSS is, while mingling and having fun.”

Following lunch, Moore-Lemoine tested their knowledge with brain teasers, consisting of trivia about national and international figures and events.
