SENIOR SHOWCASE

By Shari Campbell

More activities coming in 2021

WHAT’S HAPPENING: We have left 2020 behind us and are ever hopeful that 2021 will see us return to a healthier normal, again. Until then, we will keep things as safe as possible here; we are still wearing masks and practicing social distancing at the Center and at Transit. We also have lots of hand sanitizer available for you to use. We continue to be super diligent with the cleaning of our buildings and the buses. We plan to bring back more activities in 2021 and hope to get a few trips scheduled as the weather warms up. “Ride Free” continues on all our buses through June 30, 2021.

Join us for BINGO at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday. Cards are $1 and you can play as many as you like.

We mailed the January-February Senior Center Newsletters last Wednesday. The January menu and activities are part of the newsletter. It is also be posted on our webpage: https://finneycountyseniorcenter.org/

PLANNING AHEAD:

Michael Gonzales will be singing to us and will help us celebrate the 86th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s birth. Michael, as Elvis, will also be entertaining us at noon on Friday, Jan. 8. Don’t miss out on this great entertainment and call us if you want to eat some tasty meatloaf and a baked potato that day.
