On Halloween evening from 5:30-7, we’ll open the Senior Center to trick-or-treaters. A number of our senior adults who live away from high-traffic areas will meet at the center to hand out candy. We can promise a safe visit for youngsters who want to stop by for some treats.
We’ll hold our annual Craft and Bake Sale from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 1-2. Any senior adults who have handcrafts to sell may sign up for a free vending table by calling 940-325-6470 or by stopping by our reception desk. Vendors under age 50 are welcome to join us for a donation of $10. Senior crafters will keep their own proceeds, but money from the bake sale will go to the Senior Center.
Also in the works for Saturday, Nov. 2, is a Drive-By Dog Bar fundraiser. From 11 a.m.-1 p.m., we will have box lunches containing hot dogs, chips and a drink available outside our back door for those who want to drive by and pick them up. (Anyone who wants dessert can come inside to shop the bake sale!) Donation amounts will be left up to the patrons. Money from hot dog contributions will be divided equally between the Senior Center and United Way.
An AARP Defensive Driving Class is on the calendar for Wednesday, Nov. 6, from 9:30 a.m.-3 p.m. with a break for lunch. The cost for AARP members is $12, and $14 for all others. Call or stop by the Senior Center to sign up for the course.
The Senior Center is the best place in town to find old-fashioned values and new-fashioned fun. We hope to see you soon.
