New event kicks off season at Seniors’ Centre

The LSRS combines popular holiday events into one day.

Langley Seniors’ Resource Centre is hoping people, pets, and pancakes will help it fundraise.

Dec. 6 starts with a pancake breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus, followed by a day-long craft sale, and pet photos with the Christmas couple in the afternoon.

“It is a fundraiser for the centre,” explained recreational director Sandy Lucas.

Breakfast runs 10 to 11:30 a.m. and includes two very special guests. Santa and Mrs. Claus are there and available for photos by donation.

Breakfast costs are $10 for adults and $5 for kids. Purchase tickets at the front desk or call the number below.

There are fun activities for kids including cookie decorating and a colouring competition.

The couple will also be around from 12:30 to 2 p.m. for photos with pets.

Organizers ask that people only bring dogs and cats.

Pet photos are first come, first serve and the cost is $10.

The craft fair runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Lucas said there are more than 40 vendors offering such things as jewelry, perogies, baking, vintage crafts, Christmas treasures, kitchen items, knitting/crocheting, sewing, and more.

There will be raffles and a silent auction, as well.

It’s all at the LSRC building, 20605 51B Ave. For information, call 604-530-3020.

Before this busy day, the centre will next host a gospel and blues Christmas dinner with a performance by John Sanders Band. It’s on Dec. 2, offering a traditional turkey buffet dinner and entertainment. Tickets are $35 for members and $45 for non-members.
