President Doreen Glanfield said she was very pleased with the event.

“It was very great,” she said. “It went over very well.”

About 165 people attended the gala affair, which featured tables with samples of food from every province in Canada.

Glanfield and a group of volunteers who worked diligently to make the day a success prepared all the food.

“We tried to get all the food as close to representing a province as we could get,” said Glanfield. The ladies worked very hard.”

Peggy Makofka, executive director of Rimbey FCSS said she was pleased the day went so well and was so well attended.

“All around it was a very good day,” she said.

Makofka said a great deal of work and planning went into making the day a success and the seniors well deserved such a celebration.

“They built our community, our province and our country.”

Ab Seaward from Gull Lake and Lloyd Greenough from Sylvan Lake, who often play for dances at the Drop In, provided the entertainment.

The event was co-sponsored by Parkland Manor, Rimbey FCSS, the County of Ponoka, Rimoka Housing Foundation, Rimbey Primary Care Network and the Drop In.
