March News

The month of February was a short month filled with activities.  We had 2 great Bingo’s, Fred Younkins performed for our Birthday Party and Corporal Duhan gave us a great workshop on how to watch out for scams.

This month we have our crocheting group, exercise classes, Pinochle, Bunko and Farkle games, special music, coffee, treats and of course Bingo games.  Make sure to pick up a calendar because there is always something fun happening here at the Thurmont Senior Center. Don’t forget it is free to join the center. We will continue our gift table with items that are donated by others.  This table served as a “store” where the seniors could buy gifts for someone without needing to go out to a shopping center.   If you happen to have new or like new gift items that you do not want or need, we will take them for our table.  This way our seniors can have a place to shop to get gifts without having to go to the stores. Speaking of donations if by chance you have extra bottled water or soda in cans that you would like to donate to the center, we could really use them for BINGO.

We would love for you to join us for Yoga on Monday’s and Zumba on Friday’s they are $5.00 a class or 8 classes for $24.00 We also offer a free balance and strength exercise session daily, Monday-Thursday beginning at 11:00-11:45. 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.  We also play Bingo every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, if we have a 5th Wednesday, we have a special Bingo. March has a 5th Wednesday so we have chosen the Rocky Ridge Fire Company to be the beneficiary of the Special Bingo.  It is always a fun time full of laughter and special homemade treats for halftime. Of course, we can’t forget our coffee time on Tuesday’s at 10:00 am.

Remember we have delicious lunches served every day at 12:00, 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 You are always among friends when you come in so if you are feeling lonely come in and make new friends.

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. If you would like to share any pictures you have of events held at the Senior Center I would love to share them with others.

Just a reminder if Frederick County Public schools are closed due to weather the Thurmont Senior Center is closed as well.  If they have a 2-hour delay, we will be opening at our regular time 9 a.m.

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