Borden and Radisson members of their seniors clubs were invited to Langham on Jan. 26 for a turkey and ham supper and program in the Langham Town Hall. The tables were nicely decorated with white cloths, snowmen or snowbirds set on a mound of white batting and silver snowflakes over mini lights. The hall also had snowmen at the door and on the piano with mini lights along the stage. After a very delicious meal with cheesecake for dessert, prepared by the Langham seniors, everyone enjoyed an evening of popular tunes from yesteryear provided by Don Balzer, retired educator and pastor, playing the piano and singing along with many sing along tunes such as Side by Side, Hey Good Lookin’, Irish Lullaby, Could I Have This Dance, songs from Sound of Music and Hawaii, gospel songs and, in closing, God Will Take Care of You. Don gave a bit of history about many of the tunes, which was interesting. The 50/50 of $133 was won by Marg Griffiths of Langham and door prizes were won by Hudson Geisbrecht and Joann Borys of Langham and Shirley Whitt of Radisson.
