Once more this year, the seniors’ centre at Surrey Pavilion is celebrating the Christmas season with a festive dinner and Christmas concert on Dec. 8.
Again the concert is being produced and directed by Eve Baldwin, as it has for the past 10-plus years.
It’s such a shame that Scrooge and his committee are running the activities at the Sunrise Pavilion and I’ll tell you why.
Tickets for this senior dinner and show are a whopping $17.50 each for non-members and $14.50 for members. One can get a decent meal at White Spot for $8, without the show of course.
Having been a part of the cast for several years, I know that Eve and her group of volunteers have worked darn hard, as they do every year to put on these concerts – mainly for the joy of it, but if they want to eat dinner on Thursday they’ll have to pay for their dinner too.
In my opinion charging seniors such a high price for a dinner and show is paramount to theft.
Seniors should be fairly treated and respected while being charged a fair price.
