In the more immediate future, though, we’re coming up on our annual Gigantic Garage Sale next Friday and Saturday, March 14-15. Our volunteers will start setting up on Monday, March 10 at the City Activities Center at 735 Hood Road in Fort Wolters. We have teams ready to pick up donations for the garage sale, so if you have items you’d like to give us just call the center at 940-325-6470 to schedule a time and place. We will accept donations through 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, March 12.
For those who would like to get a jump on some good deals, we’re having an Early Bird sale from 5-7 on Thursday evening, March 13. For that sale only, admission will be $10 per person. The sales from 9-5 on Friday and 9-1 on Saturday will be free to the public.
This week marks the start of two new classes. Rosette Sutton is teaching crochet on Tuesday afternoons at 2, and I’ll be leading a beginning French class on Fridays at 1. Anyone is welcome to come join these or any of the other classes and activities we offer.
We’ve got some fun planned for St. Patrick’s Day on Monday, March 17. We’re looking for folks to participate in our Blarney Contest that will start at 11 a.m. If you have a Tall Tale to tell, we hope you’ll consider adding your name to the list. We’ll have first-, second- and third-place prizes for the winning whoppers. Keep in mind that the storytellers will have to finish within a five-minute limit.
At the Senior Center we’re always looking for an excuse to celebrate. Why not come on down and join in the fun.
