Cloverdale Recreation Centre hosts Seniors’ Showcase, free barbecue

The Cloverdale Recreation Centre hosted a celebration on Saturday to end Seniors’ Week with a showcase and barbecue.

Seniors’ Week is held annually in B.C. to recognize the contributions that seniors make to their communities throughout the province. This year, it ran from June 3 to 9.

Cloverdale’s event showcased much of what local seniors are up to in the community, including sports such as table tennis and pickleball, musical diversions such as ukulele playing and choir singing, crafting such as knitting and woodcarving, and much more.
