Senior Showcase

WHAT’S HAPPENING?


We are gearing up for a busy September.  September is National Senior Center Month.  Patti has a lot of fun activities and games planned for us.  We will be closed for Labor Day on Monday, Sept. 7. No meals or activities or bus services that day.


I also wanted to remind you that the Senior Center is available to rent for your parties, celebrations and family events.


Our September-October newsletter should have hit your mailboxes earlier this week. All the news about activities and events and meals at the Senior Center is included in this newsletter.  If you are not on our mailing list, please call Della at 272-3620 to get yourself added for this mailing.   You may also stop by the center to pick up a newsletter or a menu.


A few special activities to look forward to in September include Bingo on Sept. 3 and Sept. 25, Whazzup with staff on Tuesdays before lunch, Jeopardy game and Sundae Bar on Sept. 11, birthday party on Sept. 14, Johnetta from Finney County Museum on Friday, Sept. 18 and more. You won’t want to miss donuts and coffee on Sept. 30. Help us bring back our monthly breakfast at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 24.
