Senior Showcase

WHAT’S HAPPENING?


We are all looking forward to a nice week filled with sunshine, blue skies and warmer temperatures. Our next casino trip is Tuesday, March 10. This bus trip is full, but we always have cancellations, so go ahead and call to get your name on our March waiting list. We play bingo on the first Thursday of each month at 10:30 a.m. Join Janice and the gals and guys who play bingo here. One hundred percent guaranteed to have fun. You should take an opportunity this week to get out Friday evening and come here for the Senior Association meeting and covered dish supper. The food is great and they always have good entertainment. Bring your favorite dish or dessert.


MARCH FOR MEALS ON WHEELS


March has been dedicated to raising awareness of senior hunger. One in six American seniors go hungry every day. Our campaign, March for Meals on Wheels began March 1. The money raised is used to purchase meals for those home-bound seniors who cannot afford them. It is also used to furnish blizzards packs and holiday meals for all our Meals on Wheels clients.


Think of how the higher cost of medical care, property taxes, utilities and groceries your family or business. And then think about how rising costs of living affects those seniors living on a very fixed income? Many of you have received a letter in the mail from Patti Thummel. Please be generous and give to help Seniors fight hunger. If you aren’t on our mailing list yet and would like to give a donation to March For Meals on Wheels, mail your check to March for Meals, 907 N. 10th, Garden City, KS. 67846.


If you have a home-bound loved one that would benefit from Meals on Wheels call Patti at 272-3620 for more information.
