Minnesota visit in May

They say that April showers will bring May flowers, so we say bring them on! We are ready to see the beauty in those flowers. May is also Older American Month and we will have many different ways to enjoy what the 18-80 Club has to offer. Jim Senior, our wonderful mayor, was over Wednesday, May 1, officially proclaiming “May Older American Month” at the club. We were honored to have him eat chicken dinner with us too.

Friday, May 3 we will have bingo at 11 a.m., followed by lunch of pork cutlet, baked potato with sour cream, peas and carrots, hot rolls and cream pie.

Monday, May 6 you can start signing up for the over-night trip to Meskwaki Casino on June 26-27. The cost for this trip will be $50 per person based on double occupancy. It will include motor coach transportation, lodging, $40 for gaming and two $5 food vouchers. Only 56 will be able to go, so sign up soon.

Tuesday, May 7 will be our first Wii bowling tournament. It will start at 10 a.m. with a bracket of four every half hour. The final play-off will be just after lunch. The menu will be roast beef, potato, creamed spinach, fresh melon, wheat roll and gelatin parfait. Last month’s winners were Louise McCoy and Dorothy Rodgers.

Wednesday, May 8 we will have the Appanoose County Health Nurses in taking blood pressures. New pocket record books will be distributed to those that do not have one. As normal the chicken dinner will follow at 11:30 a.m.

Thursday, May 9 will be our monthly birthday party with co-op and bingo at 5 p.m. Seniors are encouraged to bring a covered dish and their own table service and enjoy the good old home cook in.

The group will be off to Red Wing, Minn. for a three day trip May 14-16. We will depart from the club Tuesday at 8 a.m. and head to Treasure Island where we will enjoy the gaming, bowling and touring. Tuesday afternoon we will settle into the hotel and enjoy a free buffet dinner. Wednesday morning we will tour the Red Wing area. This time we will be touring the local brewery which just opened a couple of months ago, visit the Red Wing Pottery Museum and the show room where the pottery is made. Lunch will be enjoyed at Liberty’s Restaurant downtown. We will also visit the Red Wing shoe outlet. We had intended to tour the boot factory however this will not be available this trip. We will have to pick it back up in the fall. The cost for this trip will be $165 per person based on double occupancy. It will include transportation, lodging and one free dinner buffet, one free game of bowling, a $3 food voucher and all charges and admissions including lunch on Wednesday. We have only five seats left, so if you are interested, come in as soon as possible.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about building code compliance. One Centerville resident at Monday's City Council meeting proposed the city create two new positions in the police department to only deal with minimum housing and nuisance abatement issues. The city currently has George Johnson as the only employee assigned to enforce building code compliance issues. Does Centerville need more than just Johnson to enforce code compliance issues? So, the question of the week is, "Should Centerville hire additional help to assist George Johnson enforce building code compliance issues?"

A. Yes
B. No
C. Not sure
