Please stop by to welcome our new cook, Jessica West, to our senior center. We are very excited to have her join us.

Our upcoming programs Wednesday, Nov. 15, we have Dr. Zafar here at 11 a.m. for hearing aid checks, and then at 12:30 p.m. Marion Home Health is here to do footcare; call for an appointment. Thursday, Nov. 16, is our sing-a-long; we will have our Thanksgiving dinner on Friday, Nov. 17, but call first because it is filling up fast. On Tuesday, Nov. 21, we will have our board business meeting after the noon meal. We hope you will join us soon for a meal.

We need volunteers; call for more information. We have people that play pool from 2-4 p.m. and would like to have more people join them; stop by if you like to play pool. We want to thank everyone for your support to our senior center.
