The Arts and Crafts Fair is on Saturday, September 21. We are doing a fundraiser for parking of $5.00 at our north parking lot for that day. We are not doing a meal so the center will not be open. But if you like to park closer, you can pay $5.00 to help support our center.

Autumn begins on Monday, September 23. We hope for cooler weather soon.

We are looking for more volunteers to help at our center call for more information at 620-947-2304.

Jaime Garcia, Angels, was here last Thursday. She brought a gentleman, John, with her who will be replacing her as she will be serving a different area. John presented a very informative program on falling and ways to set up your home for safety.

Jaime finished the program by showing us how to get up off the floor either by using a chair or just getting into a position to get up without using a chair. We appreciate the many visits Jaime did for us and all the Blood Pressure Readings she has taken.

John will be doing a program in October on Medicine Management, and he will have a nurse with him to take blood pressure for anyone who comes in to the center.
