We are hoping for warm temperatures and clear skies this week, especially on Thursday. We are venturing north, past Scott Lake Park, to The Little Jerusalem Badlands State Park at 9 a.m. on Thursday. We have arranged to have a tour guide through the Kansas Department of Parks and Wildlife. Lunch will be at Dairy Queen in Scott City. Your cost will be $5-10 for lunch. This trip has a waiting list, but not to worry, we will schedule 1-2 additional trips in May and June. Call Della and we will get your contact info, so we can let you know when we have additional dates line up.
March brings the return of our morning Country Line Dancers on Wednesday and Friday mornings. Stop by and watch them and make plans to join this friendly and energetic group.
Our March-April newsletter should hit your mailboxes on Saturday. All the news about activities and events and meals at the Senior Center is included in this newsletter. We print about 800 copies and mail as many as 600 copies every other month. It is also published on our website. If you are not on our mailing list, please call Della at 272-3620 to get yourself added for this mailing.
