Happy New Year.

My wish is for decent weather so people can come in and eat with us. Being housebound is no fun.

We received a card from Keith and Norine Holtsclaw, who now live in Topeka. They brought us up-to-date on their activities.

Joyce Jackson brought in treats for her birthday. Her birthday occurred while she was gone for the holidays so she observed it here Dec. 31.

We sang, ?Auld Lang Syne? before lunch on the last day of the year.

Come join us Jan. 15 on Senior Center Day. There is always a good program.

For information on volunteering, renting the senior center building or making a lunch reservation, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 309 S. Third St.
