July News

June was a fun filled month.  We celebrated together at our annual birthday party. Pam and her committee did a great job in providing fun games and a wonderful party.  Thank you to the Rocky Ridge Fire Company Auxiliary for a delicious meal. Two successful Bingos, many card and dice games played and lots of food shared.

We are excited to share that our very own Carol Long has been selected into the Senior Center Hall of Fame.  We are so proud of Carol and are so grateful to have her as part of the Thurmont Senior Center. We will be celebrating birthdays on Thursday July 14th with special music from Patty and Brent Progecene.

Are there any games or activities you would like to see?  Maybe Dominoes, Cribbage, Bridge. I am always up to try something new?  Is there a favorite game you and a group like to play? Come to the center and play, it is a great way to get out of the house and surround yourself with others. You are never too old to make new friends.

I would like to invite you to coffee on Tuesdays at 10; this is a time for us to get to know one another enjoy a cup of coffee and a sweet treat.    Also, that morning we have Ruth playing music and having a sing along which of course is lots of fun. We would love for you to come by for a cuppa and a visit.  Yoga on Monday’s and Zumba on Friday’s are still going strong.  Plan on coming out and exercising with us.  We also have exercise on Thursday morning at 9:15 in which we do a couple great videos together

We have Bunko on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 1:00 and Farkle on the 4th Thursday at 1:00 please call the center to sign up. They always are laughing and having a good time. We will be having our monthly fundraiser at Roy Roger’s on July 14th, 2022 from 5 -8 pm. Come out and see us and get some delicious food as well as our phenomenal goodies. We would like to say a special THANK YOU to Roy Rogers for being so supportive of our monthly bake sale.  We have been able to raise quite a bit of money from this fundraiser and we couldn’t do it without them.

We look forward to having you come in for a visit and having a delicious meal together. Don’t forget to call ahead to order your lunch.

Here at the center, we are concerned for your well-being.  If you are experiencing any cold or allergy symptoms and need a Covid home test let us know.  If there is anything we can do to assist you in any way we would love to be of help.  Just reach out to us and let us know what your needs are.  If we can’t do anything we will try our best to connect you with someone who can find you the resources you need.

Did I mention we are always looking for volunteers here at the center? We can always use help driving seniors to local appointments or the grocery store, serving lunch, working Bingo or other opportunities.

Remember we have delicious lunches served every day at 12:00.  We have now been getting meals from several locations in Thurmont. We would like to thank Mountain Gate, Kountry Kitchen, Rocky’s, Fratelli’s, and Bollinger’s for partnering with us. The meals are $6.00 each. We would love to share a meal with you.  Please call the day before to sign up for lunch.  Menus are at the center and online on Facebook and our website thurmontseniorcenter.org The Thurmont Senior Center is available to rent for different activities as well. Like perhaps a baby shower, a birthday party or a bridal shower.

As always if you have questions don’t hesitate to call us at 301-271-7911.

Just a reminder some activities may have a minimal cost but to join the center is absolutely free.
