What do many Seniors (ages 55 +) do on alternate Wednesdays in the Hillsborough and surrounding area between September and May? They come to Hillsborough Baptist Church at 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. for fellowship, snacks, games, stories/experience-sharing, ‘Show ‘n Tell’ presentations, devotional reading and prayers, all shared with participants. The session is different every time.
At our last gathering in May, we had 34 people attending to participate in a Potluck, Bingo with Prizes, Games plus a draw for a very special framed photo of our old Hillsborough Baptist Church. Karen Jackman was the winner of this special artist’s photo.
Close to Christmas we have a Potluck and then a fun-loving “Yankee Swap;” bring a wrapped gift and go home with a gift. The choices and swapping gifts create much laughter and entertainment.
Sometimes we have a ‘Seasonal Bingo” with prizes (NOT numbers on cards but suitable seasonal words). Our ‘Show ‘n Tell’ participants have shared their stories with great interest from the rest of us. For a few examples:
Testimony including a family quilt embroidered, showing many family boats
Legend of the Sand Dollar
An antique tool or gadget - - - what is it?
Hand-carved beautiful wooden objects by a talented senior
Our fall session will begin on Wednesday, September 20, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. We are looking forward to seeing you and meeting new friends or neighbours that you may bring to this session. Let’s see what our Lord will provide in our upcoming sessions.
