Making Memories ...


There will be games and door prizes, as well, so this is a party you won’t want to miss.

If there are seniors who live too far out in the country to be found by Trick-or-Treaters, we’ll open the Senior Center on Halloween evening for those who want to distribute candy to neighborhood kids here.  If you know any families who are looking for safe places for their children to go Trick-or-Treating, tell them to come by the Senior Center at 102 NW 6th Ave. between 5-7 p.m. on Oct. 31. There will be plenty of candy to go around.

Our annual 2-day Craft and Bake Sale is fast approaching. Any senior adults, age 50 and up, who have handmade crafts to sell may sign up for a vending table by calling us at (940) 325-6470 or stopping by the center’s reception desk.  The sale will run from 9 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 1-2.  

On that Saturday, Nov. 2, we will also run a Drive-By Dog Bar fundraiser.  Between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. we will grill hot dogs in the parking lot. 

People can drive by to grab a box lunch containing a hot dog, chips and a drink for a monetary donation.  If they want dessert to go with it, they can park and go inside to shop our Bake Sale.  All hot dog donations will be divided equally between the Senior Center and United Way.  This is a great way to support the community, grab some lunch, and do some Christmas shopping all at the same time.  

Making memories is a full-time occupation here at the Senior Center. 

Why not make us part of your memory bank.  Come join in the fun.

  • Ordinary heroes

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

    I will never understand the kind of person who criticizes others for lacking ability in his own area of competency.

  • 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.
