2013 Senior Expo Is Upon Us!


We are extremely grateful to the staff of First Baptist and to all the screeners and workshop leaders who will be donating their time and services for the Expo.

Friday’s activities won’t end with the Expo at 1 p.m. The monthly dance scheduled for that evening will begin at 6:30 p.m., as usual, featuring a Sock Hop theme. We thank Misty Stekoll of Bethany HomeHealth Services for providing decorations and food for our dance each month.

Next Monday, Sept. 16, our Movie Night film will be the timeless romantic drama “An Affair to Remember,” starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. We’ll start serving the free soup and salad supper at 6 p.m.

On Wednesday, October 16, we’ll be taking another trip to Winstar Casino. The bus holds a capacity of 55 persons, so if you are over age 50 and would like to go call us at 940-325-6470 to reserve your seat. The $20 cost, payable in advance, includes bus fare, a free senior breakfast, and $20 of casino playing credit.

For those who have called to ask about another AARP Defensive Driving course, the instructor’s travel abroad has made it necessary to postpone it for another month. We have scheduled the next class for Wednesday, Nov. 6, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Call or stop by the center reception desk to put your name on the class list.

Our Senior Center goal is to meet needs of senior adults in this community in every way we can. Please let us hear your feedback to help us do better. In the meantime, we’ll plan to see you at the 2013 Senior Expo!

  • Ordinary heroes

    It seems kind of funny to me that our society celebrates the abilities of some people while ignoring those of others.

  • FEB BD.jpg Treasures Galore

    Have you heard that old saying, “One person’s junk is another person’s treasure”? Well let me tell you, we’ve got treasure to spare!


    Since early Monday morning, our volunteers have been unpacking, sorting, pricing and arranging truckloads of treasure for the annual Gigantic Garage Sale that begins tonight. Our $10-per-person Early Bird Sale will run from 5-7 this evening, but the real fun begins tomorrow morning. The sale from 9-5 on Friday, March 14, and 9-1 on Saturday, March 15, is free to the public.
