Written by 

A fundraising luncheon for the Swift Current Seniors Activity Centre was held in downtown Swift Current, July 29. The luncheon, which took place at the Seniors Centre, was hosted by Ricardo Morin, the owner of Soup and Such. A live auction took place during the luncheon and three local musicians - Henry Banman, Ron Reimche and Mel Hoffart - played country and gospel music. The event raised $2,354 for the campaign to keep the Seniors Centre open. According to Morin, who is the vice president and spokesperson of the Swift Current Seniors Activity Centre, the campaign has already raised nearly $11,000. The goal is to raise $60,000 for much needed maintenance and repair work to the building. These upgrades are essential to keep the building open as a place for seniors to meet and socialize. For more information about the fundraising initiative by the Swift Current Seniors Activity Centre or to make a donation, contact Ricardo Morin from Monday to Friday between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. at 306-773-0373.
