October 2023 News

September was another fun filled month.  Two successful Bingo’s.  We had many card and dice games played and lots of food shared.  We enjoyed our monthly birthday party. In the morning before the party Marie Free comes in to give seated massages for only $1.00 a minute for our seniors. We had our monthly fundraiser at Roy Roger’s on September 14th, 2023 from 5 -8 pm. We always just about sell out of our phenomenal goodies. We have a raffle for a Schwinn Trailway Bicycle that was donated to the Center.  Tickets are available at the Center for $1.00 a ticket.  It is a very nice bike with a helmet.  We are still taking donations for the yard sale. The library hosted a Digital Learning session talking with our seniors about scams and phishing and what to look out for. Mostly how to protect yourself from being a victim.
