Happy New Year from all of us at the senior center.

We hope you will make time to come in for a meal or activity this year. Our doors are always open and we have great fellowship too.

Some activities held this week included Katherine DeFilippis from Palette of Dreams Gallery and at 12:30 p.m. Jan. 11 Esther Wiebe will be talking about her trip to Thailand and China.

Mary McFadden will be here from 8 a.m. to noon Jan. 13 for foot care.

During the winter days if the schools are closed because of inclement weather, the senior center is closed too.

We want to thank all our volunteers, Meals on Wheels drivers, board members and kitchen staff for a great year and we look forward to working with them in the new year.

Lunch reservations must be called in before 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We can also take orders to go that can be picked up or someone needs Meals on Wheels.

GOESSEL senior center

After the holidays are over, its often easy for the “winter blues” to set in. Gathering together with others helps to break up those blues and the AGAPE Center can be a great place for needed inspiration, fun, and fellowship.

In addition to regular noon meals, there are a variety of activities to look forward to in January.

Our Wednesday programs start at 12:30 following lunch and include: Jan. 5, Lucinda Hiebert presenting, ?Winterizing Your Heart;? Jan. 12, Donna Becker?s program is “Humor” and the January anniversaries celebration and Jan. 19 is the AGAPE Center?s annual meeting. Everyone is invited to come and learn about the center.

Rounding out January is Bingo and birthday celebration on Jan. 26.

Our potluck is at 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 21, with a program by the Woelk brothers and sisters to follow.

This month Goessel will be hosting two pool tournaments here. The first is Jan. 6 with the McPherson team and Jan. 21 with Buhler.

In the New Year we especially welcome anyone new to the community or who has not participated in AGAPE meals before to call or stop by and visit about how we can serve you.

Carry-out meals and Meals On Wheels delivery is available, as well as the fellowship of eating in our facility with old and new friends.

For more information, call 620-367-8307 and office hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. Messages may be left at other times.
