SENIORS SCENE: Centre in need of volunteer drivers

Help needed to take drive seniors on various excursions throughout the Lower Mainland.

The Kent Street Activity Centre is in urgent need of volunteers with Class 4 drivers licences to take seniors on excursions throughout the Lower Mainland.

If you have a few hours to share and enjoy helping others, please call Dianne at 604-541-2236.

• If you haven’t picked up the White Rock Winter Recreation Guide yet, look for it in the Wednesday, Dec. 28 edition of the Peace Arch News. You can also view it online at www.whiterockcity.ca/register

There is still time to register for programs, as many classes don’t start until mid-January.

Why not pursue an art endeavour, begin a new hobby, or enjoy some physical fitness in a fun and supportive environment? The opportunities are endless.

• Do you know someone in need  of some legal advice?

On Wednesday, Jan. 4 at 9:30 a.m., local lawyer Alan Benson will be at Kent Street Centre to provide this service to low-income seniors who live in White Rock/South Surrey. Appointments are on a first-come, first- served basis.

Visits at the centre are free of charge; the usual lawyer’s fee will be charged for any additional visits away from the centre or when any legal work is done. Please call ahead to confirm your attendance, 604-541-2231.

• Bring out the grandkids to one of the Holiday Break Skates this festive season.

Until Jan. 2 at Centennial Arena, there will be a theme skate every day, except Christmas and Boxing Day.
