Senior scribbles, November 5, 2014


November is here and it?s the end of Daylight Saving Time until next year. We have some good programs coming up and so we hope others will join us soon for a meal.

The center is having its Thanksgiving dinner at noon Friday, Nov. 21. Those wanting to reserve a spot should call by Monday, Nov. 17, to sign up because we can only take so many people.

Reservations are already filling up.

We will have our jam session Thursday, Nov. 13, and we will have it every second Thursday of the month.

Please try to join us for a great time.

I am having surgery Nov. 5 and Billie Goossen will be filling in for me.

We want to thank everyone for their help and support.
