September News

August was another fun filled month. We had three successful Bingos. The special Bingo proceeds will go to Seton Center in Emmitsburg.  Please check in with us to see all of the services Seton Center offers that may benefits you. We had many card and dice games played, lots of laughter shared, lunches enjoyed and coffee drank.

I know there are a lot of people reading this with beautiful gardens. If you find yourself with an abundance of, veggies or fruit that you would like to bring to the center to donate I would love to be able to share your bounty with the seniors. Those that we only get to see when we deliver lunches to them are not able to get out to go to the farmers markets so I would love to be able to take it to them.

Along with our Yoga and Zumba classes we offer a free balance and strength exercise session daily, Monday-Thursday beginning at 11:15-11:45, the sessions are free. You can come once a week or every day.  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. We are always looking for more players. They always are laughing and having a good time. We also are having Bridge every 2nd and 4th Tuesday and Wednesday.

We will be having our monthly fundraiser at Roy Roger’s on September 8th, 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 will be celebrating birthdays on Thursday September 15th with special music from Patty and Brent Progecene

We have a donation box in the entry way for old prescription, readers or sunglasses.  Also, old hearing aids.  This is a recycle box for Lions Club International.  If you have any old, broken glasses that you don’t know what to do with, bring them by here. Also, I wanted to make sure everyone is aware that if you need a walker, canes, wheelchair we have them available to use.

Have stuff you want to get rid of??? We will be having a yard sale during Colorfest you can donate your books, puzzles or household items including small furniture for us to sell. All proceeds go right to the Thurmont Senior Center.  Speaking of benefiting the Senior Center, we are a self-funded program if you are interested in donating, we would appreciate every penny.

We would love to share a meal with you, we have delicious lunches served every day at 12:00.  We are so grateful to be 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.  Please call the day before to sign up for lunch.  Menus are at the center and online on Facebook and our website
