Hello September. Welcome Fall! Not quite ready for the forecasted splash of winter this week. September is National Senior Center Month. Every week there is something new and fun happening.
I also wanted to remind you that the Senior Center is available to rent for your parties, celebrations and family events. Call Della for more information. 272-3620
A few special activities to look forward to in September include BINGO on 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 will not want to miss donuts and coffee on Sept. 30. Help us bring back our monthly breakfast on Thursday, Sept. 24 at 8:30am.
We see a lot of fellas shooting pool/snooker each day and a few domino players have returned too. We are looking forward to our regular bridge groups returning. Our first and third Monday bridge ladies are back, but nothing much going on with Bridge on Thursday or Friday afternoons. I thoroughly enjoyed playing a couple of hands of Skip Bo last Thursday afternoon.
