My brother and I both have daughters who’ll turn 21 years old within the next three months – his eldest and my youngest. It seems inconceivable that these precious girls have already reached adulthood. Just yesterday they were playing dress-up and hosting tea parties. Where has the time gone?
That age-old question keeps popping up around the senior center, as well. It feels like mere weeks ago that we were costuming ourselves for last year’s Halloween party, preparing for Thanksgiving dinner and planning Christmas celebrations. I can’t believe a whole year has passed already.
With the holidays upon us once more, activity is escalating at the Senior Center. Tomorrow night’s dance, from 6:30-9, will feature a Thanksgiving theme, so anyone who likes may dress accordingly.
On Friday, Nov. 8, elder law attorney Paul Hyde will be at the Senior Center from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. During that time he will be available to help with estate planning, Medicaid applications or other legal issues. To schedule a one-hour appointment, call the center at 940-325-6470 or sign up at the center reception desk.
From 8 a.m. to 12 noon this Saturday, Nov. 9, we’ll be running a car wash and bake sale fundraiser at the Wash House next to the Murphy gas station in front of Walmart on FM 1821. If you intend to wash your car any time soon, why not plan it for this Saturday to support the Senior Center. We will gladly accept donations of baked goods at the center all day tomorrow or at the car wash Saturday morning. Every little bit helps!
We appreciate all those who came by to support our craft and bake sale and hot dog bar last weekend. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to pass $150 on to United Way – not a staggering amount, but a little more than they started with that morning. We are continually grateful for a community that takes responsibility for its many service organizations.
