The Fort St. James Seniors Association held a potluck dinner at the Seniors Centre on Dec. 11.

The Seniors Centre was jam packed and full of holiday spirit as everyone came together to celebrate the season, each other and the many accomplishments that have taken place recently including the Seniors Helping Seniors Program.

It was also a time to bid farewell to past president Judy Greenaway and welcome new president Dave Birdi who thanked Greenaway for all that she has done for the seniors in the community.

Greenaway, who was president for two years, held an integral part in forming the Seniors Helping Seniors program.

The program continues to provide transportation to those who face mobility challenges by providing grocery delivery, transportation to medical appointments and to social and wellness events.

“It’s brought new life to the Seniors Association,” Greenaway said.

Dave Birdi is looking forward to his role as president. “It’s important for me to recognise and appreciate our seniors and to give back to them, Birdi said.

The evening was filled with good food and festive music performed by Robert Pacheco and Sam Holden.

It was also full of joy, community spirit and thankfulness for the seniors in Fort St James.
