Sushine Club busy with celebrations.

Alberni's Sunshine Club is a beehive of activity at Echo Centre.

The Sunshine Club is all about celebrating this month.

On Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 1:30 p.m. club members will celebrate Valentine’s Day. The Old Time Fiddlers will entertain and then the Sunshine Club Cloggers will dance.

All members with birthdays in January and February will enjoy a piece of birthday cake.

Tickets are $2 each and should be purchased at the Sunshine Club office by Friday, Feb. 10.

Those members who still have tickets for January’s special event, which was cancelled due to snow, can bring then in and receive February tickets in exchange or get a refund.

New seniors directory out

The Port Alberni Seniors Directory has been updated for 2012 by volunteers of the Echo Sunshine Club.

The directory is a valuable resource guide to have on hand. It gives information for the Port Alberni area on such topics as home and community care, death and bereavement, financial assistance and funding, housing, pensions, just to name a few topics.

If you would like to purchase one you can do so by dropping by the Sunshine Club office inside Echo Centre. The directory costs $5.

The Sunshine Club Office is open Monday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. For more information, please call 250-720-2505.
