Kent Street luncheons a fun time for all

Billiards, belly dancing and bowls of stew were all a part of Kent Street Activity Centre’s Fresh and Lively Luncheon last Friday.

This month, Ellen Neal and other organizers of the luncheon marked 18 years of serving up fresh food and entertainment to seniors in the community.

She noted that there is a constant crowd of regulars who show up and socialize.

“Last week, we had 83 people come in,” she said, noting the average is between 45-50.

“There are people who play below in the billiards room and a regular knitting group.”

Each week, the menu – prepared by Pat Faulkner and her team of volunteers – changes, but one thing that is constant is the fun had by all, she noted.

Admission to the luncheon is $7.

For more information or to arrange transportation, call Neal at 604-536-6945.
