June News

We had a great month of May.  We had another great turn out for our Bingo’s. June does have 5 Wednesday’s so we will be having a special bingo on the 5th Wednesday, in which we will be donating the proceeds to the Rocky Ridge Progressive 4H. On June 20th the 4H will be redoing our flower beds as a community project.  We are excited to see what they do.   We also participated in the Spring into Wellness Health Fair, what a great event to connect people with resources that we all need.  We enjoyed starting our new menu which I believe is a big hit. The lunches this month were wonderful. We look forward to continuing to have delicious meals together. Don’t forget to call ahead to order your lunch. 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 in which we do a couple great videos together.

Here at the center, we are concerned for your well-being.  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 it is something we can’t do we will try our best to find you the resources you need.

Are there any games or activities you would like to see?  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.  We are also having tea on Thursday’s at 2:00.  Also, that morning we have Ruth playing music and having a sing along which of course is lots of fun. We also have Tea on Thursday’s at 2:00 pm. We would love for you to come by for a cuppa and a visit.

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 June 9th, 2022 from 5 -8 pm. Come out and see us and get some delicious food as well as our phenomenal goodies.

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.

Don’t forget it is free to join the center.  Some activities may have a minimal cost but to join the center is absolutely free.
