Dozens of members of the Crowsnest Pass senior community attended the regular Seniors Party at the Blairmore Legion last Tuesday, taking the opportunity to have a few drinks, eat, and socialize.
According to Legion Secretary Carol Wasylien, organizers decided to hold the party on a Tuesday this month, as opposed to a Thursday, when it is normally held.
“We were hoping we would have more people show up,” she said. “[The low attendance] is mostly because it was held on a Tuesday.”
Those who did attend - roughly 40 in total - were treated to drinks, food, conversation, and music performed by Coleman residents Marilyn and Lloyd Hansen, otherwise known as Play’n Country.
The husband-and-wife team perform regularly at retirement homes, Legions and other locations throughout the Pass and Pincher Creek, and will also be performing at the Twin Butte Country General Store this Friday from 5-8 p.m.
They will be performing again at the Blairmore Legion on Nov. 11 from 2-5 p.m., as part of the Legion’s Remembrance Day ceremonies.
 
The duo performed several country tunes, including Toby Keith’s “I Ain’t as Good as I Once Was”, Allison Kraus’s “Ghost in This House”, Brooks n Dunn’s “Play Something Country”, and Alan Jackson’s “Don’t Rock the Jukebox”.
The Legion hall itself was adorned with several Halloween decorations, and volunteers prepared and served sandwiches, fruit, cheese and an array of desserts.
Throughout the course of the three-hour event, several additional seniors made their way through the Legion doors, but attendance was considerably less than previous parties this year.
According to Blairmore resident Betty Hanson, seniors from York Creek Lodge in Blairmore and CrestView Lodge in Pincher Creek are usually bussed in for the occasion, and the Legion is packed.
“Hopefully next time they’ll have it on the usual day,” said Hanson, who sold Nevada tickets throughout the course of the afternoon.
The Coleman, Blairmore, and Belleview Legions take turns hosting the seniors parties every couple of months, and are open to Legion members, guests, and local residents.
