The Seniors Centre in Fort St. James was filled with warmth, laughter and festive fun at on Dec. 1.

The Stuart Lake Seniors Association held a potluck dinner at the Centre that brought out a full house.

There was a delicious assortment of treats available for all to taste complete with turkey.

Tables were jam packed and full of holiday spirit as everyone came together to celebrate the season and the many accomplishments that have taken place over the last year.

Dave Birdi, president of the Stuart Lake Seniors Association, was thrilled with the turnout as he thanked all members for a memorable year while wishing them a very Merry Christmas.

“The biggest value of night’s like this is the company,” Birdi said.

“That is the biggest factor. To have all our seniors come out and socialize.”

For Birdi, it’s an opportunity for seniors to share their stories.

“That’s the richest part,” Birdi said. “When you get them together, it gives them an opportunity to share and to feel like they are a part of something.”

“And it’s also so wonderful to see some new faces here tonight too.”
