SENIOR SHOWCASE

By Shari Campbell

WHAT’S HAPPENING?

NOW HIRING – at Finney County Transit, we are still looking to add a couple of CDL drivers with passenger endorsement to our crew. We need both City Link route and Mini-Bus drivers. We also will be needing a driver for our Senior Center trips in the springtime.

TAX TIME is approaching. RSVP volunteers will once again be providing free income tax filing services this year. This will be a drop-off type service again this year, due to COVID-19. For more information, call Marty or Annette at 275-5566.

ON THE HORIZON:

Be sure and sign up for the Silver Brushes painting class on Feb. 1 at 12:45 p.m.

Bingo is coming up on Feb. 4 at 10:30 a.m., $1/card and no limit.

On Friday, Feb. 5, we have the Senior Association Dinner and Meeting at 6 p.m. Donna Gerstner will be providing our entertainment.
