June Senior Moments

By Kristen Bodmer

Graduation season is here.  We would like to congratulate all of the 2024 Seniors.  What a huge accomplishment! We want you to know we are so proud of you.  Always dream big and you will go places.  “If you never dream you will never know the endless possibilities of what you can become.” Annette White

We would like to take a moment to remember a dear friend to the Thurmont Senior Center, Helen Deluca.  Helen was instrumental in the Senior Center becoming independent from the count.  She has been a long- time supporter of the center and she will be terribly missed.  Her loving family donated a beautiful bench that Helen had painted flowers on to the center and it is right as you come in our door.

We had a wonderful surprise from the Thurmont Elementary School (TES) 3rd graders.  They made beautiful handmade cards for the seniors.  We sent a card to all of our seniors who receive a delivered meal and all the seniors who came in the center that day.  It truly made our day.

June is full of activities.  Take the opportunity to take a look the calendar of events we have scheduled. You can find our calendar on the website https://thurmontseniorcenter.org/ on Facebook or come into the center and ask for one.  Don’t forget we serve lunch every day at 12:00 and if you are not able to stay you can just pick up your lunch.  We have quite a few people who pick up lunch from the center now.  Just remember to call the day before or by 9:15 the morning of.

We would love for you to join us for a free balance and strength exercise session daily, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday beginning at 11:00-11:45. We play Pinochle on Tuesday at 1:00, We have Bunko on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 1:00 and Farkle on the 4th Thursday at 1:00. Thursday’s at 12:30 we play dominoes. We also play Bingo every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, if we have a 5th Wednesday, we have a Special Bingo. It is always a fun time full of laughter and special homemade treats for halftime. I can’t forget to mention coffee we are told it is the best, so come in and have a cup with us. Friday’s, we have Zumba we also offer Poker and 500. Just to let you know we have a whole corner dedicated to exercise.  We have 2 treadmills, a stair climber and a recumbent bicycle for use during our hours 9-3 there is no charge to use this equipment

We had a birthday party rental at the center this last month and the Thurmont Little League used the center for pictures.  We really love having the community use the center.  There are so many different possibilities to use the center.  The price is very affordable.   Call the Thurmont Senior Center to rent for different activities such as 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.
