Though storms may blow


Our monthly movie next Monday evening, Nov. 18, will be “An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving” starring Jacqueline Bisset. Beginning at 6 p.m. we’ll serve a free soup and salad supper to eat while you watch.

Everyone is welcome to join us.

The Senior Center will be closed on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 28-29, for the Thanksgiving holiday.  But on Wednesday the 27th we will serve a Thanksgiving meal at lunchtime, complete with turkey, dressing, and cranberry sauce.  Dessert and salad that day will be potluck.  If you plan to join us, make your reservation early before we reach our attendance capacity.

At 1 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6, the Senior Center will host its first in-house Variety Show, just for the fun of it.

This is not a contest, but merely a showcase for those who would like to share their talents.

If you enjoy entertaining others by dancing, singing, reciting poetry, performing magic, comedy routines, or any other kinds of wholesome fun, call us at (940) 325-6470 or stop by the reception desk to sign up.

On Tuesday, Dec. 10, our noon meal will feature Holiday Foods from Around the World.

We invite those who are familiar with customs and foods from other countries to participate in this international food feast by decorating a table with a national theme and/or preparing a dish to share from another country.

Anyone who brings food will eat free that day.

Again, call or stop by to sign up for the Holidays Around the World Food Fair.

We would like to see a variety of countries represented.

Here’s another heads-up for a coming event. Santa will be in the building for our annual Breakfast with Santa pancake fundraiser on Saturday morning, Dec. 14, from 8:30-11:30 a.m.

A photographer will be on hand for anyone who’d like to pose for photos with Santa Claus. Children will receive a treat from Santa’s bag.  Some of our seniors will also display their handcrafts for sale that morning.

  • 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.
