Mocktail Party June 13, 2015 - A Senior Volunteer Appreciation Event
The Mocktail Party was the brainstorm of the Sooke Region Volunteer Centre committee to show appreciation for senior volunteers in our region. We also wanted to gather together some of these long serving community members to network and brainstorm on how to ride out some of the current challenges seniors and senior based organizations are facing. When we were advised that a 'Tea' would be stereo-typing seniors and not much fun, we decided to mix it up and bit. We were sure we couldn't get a liquor license under our grant hence the 'mocktails' which were really well received! Thanks to everyone who came for the fun, with special thanks to our volunteers as well as: Abby, our bartender, Barb for helping with the bar, McKenzie our night club singer, Izaac and Matthew for teaching seniors how to use Wii Fit machines, Bev for all the food prep and serving, Trena for letting us play, Gill and Lynn for all round support and Steve & Alicia for stopping by for a surprise visit in full red surge!
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program.
