The Slocan Valley Seniors Housing Society (SVSHS) will be hosting an April Fools Brunch at the Passmore Lodge on Sunday, April 1st from 10 a.m. to 1p.m.
The event features a great brunch as well as door prizes! Admission for adults is a minimum $8 donation and kids can eat for just $4.
The ‘Fun’Raiser will feature Breakfast Wraps (ham or veggie)with a fruit plate and refreshments. A toast option is also available.
One of the highlights of the Brunch (besides a lot of April Foolishness) will be a performance by the Slocan Valley Community Band from 11 a.m. to noon.
The 20 member band has been developing an amazing range of music to share with the community including selections from Fiddler on the Roof to Fireflies and Mambo No. 5.
Everyone is invited to come out and experience their musical talents.
The Passmore Lodge is an independent living seniors facility which grew out of intensive community efforts.
Because the current level of provincial funding for the facility is quite strained, the SVSHS must fundraise to help the Lodge keep operating.
This event is one of several that they are offering to help cover the gap. The organization is also looking at developing more housing in the Slocan Valley to meet the ever-increasing needs.
You can find out more about the Societies efforts at this rewarding brunch. For more information the Lodge can be reached at 250-226-7136
