The Human Touch . . .


Fortunately, that kind of problem will never happen at the senior center. Real people take care of everything here, from answering phones to serving meals. This is one place where human relationships hold top priority.

Human service is evident in many of our senior center programs. Topping the list these days is the free Income Tax preparation assistance, available every Thursday in February and March and through April 11. Anyone seeking help may sign up between 8:30 a.m. and noon on any Thursday.

At 12:45 p.m. tomorrow, Feb. 15, following our monthly catfish dinner, Marie Riley, RN, will give a short presentation on emergency protocol.  She will explain how to prepare information for emergency service responders, what to include and where to keep it, and offer valuable tips and information about how to respond to emergency situations. The presentation is open to anyone interested in attending.

On Monday, Feb. 18, our monthly Movie Night will feature “Silverado,” one of the best westerns ever made. The free soup-and-salad supper will begin at 6 p.m., and we’ll start the movie as soon as everyone is served. Everyone is invited regardless of age.

Don’t forget about our upcoming Gigantic Garage Sale on Friday and Saturday, March 8 and 9, at the City of Mineral Wells Activity Center, across from the city gym on Hood Road in Wolters Industrial Park. 

Doors will open at 9 a.m. We will accept donations for the sale up through Wednesday afternoon, March 6. For especially great bargains, plan on shopping the Early Bird sale beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 7, with a $10 donation for admission.

We’re all about helping people at the senior center. Let us know how we may serve you. Give us a call or stop by any time we’re open, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every weekday.  You’ll find a friendly, caring place here.

  • 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.
