Senior Center News

Sneakers and singers kick off the week

Next week will be a somewhat more normal schedule for the center. The usual Monday doings will start with the Silver Sneakers – Fitness for Everyone – at 9 a.m. activities and followed at 10:30 by the Silver Notes.

Actually the Sneakers start at 10 a.m., but most of them need the 30 minutes “’tween time” for resting and getting breath back in the lungs before beginning the singing. Gospel singing, done right, requires much lung-power and volume. They will sing until just before lunch, so feel free to join in both activities and start your week off with zest and zing!

The following day, Tuesday at 9 a.m., the Crafters will spend a couple of hours at the craft tables, with beading, jewelry, paper, scrapbooks, crochet and knitting work. These experts stay busy making beautiful and useful items for craft sales, gifts and other uses. If you have needle expertise, please join them as you wish. Tuesday afternoon, the 15th, will be used for the bi-monthly (or is it semi-monthly?) Texas Neighborhood Services people to take utility assistance applications, from 1-4 p.m. Don’t forget to bring your paper work and eligibility documents for the application process.

For more help with resources and services for the senior citizen and families, make an appointment to visit with Cathy Torres, geriatric social worker, who shows up every Wednesday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. She has access to all sorts of helps which may apply specifically to your needs, or the needs of your senior citizen. Cathy always has a very busy day when she comes to help us, so don’t forget the appointment. Call 325-6470, the Senior Center office.

If you need to wait for a late appointment, come early, play Bingo and have lunch at the Center. Bingo is sponsored by IntegraCare, and afterward Eddie Gilley will entertain with his incomparable singing and guitar playing.
