AmeriCorps students donate time and money to 18-80 Club

CENTERVILLE — With February being Valentine’s month, we remember those dear to us in special ways. All the seniors at the center hope your Valentine’s Day is special. We have remembered those unable to be with us with cards that will be sent. Lots of love and special prayers go along with the cards.  

We start the month off with a very important meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 7. All seniors that are interested in doing one day, two day,  three day and the seven to 10 day trips need to be at this meeting. The meeting will start at 3 p.m.  We will be voting on the various packages and will be able to start signing up for the longer trips. If you are not able to attend call and we can discuss the options, however it will be for the best if you can just make sure to be present.

Wednesday, Feb. 8 the Appanoose County Public Health nurses will be in taking blood pressures from 11-11:30 p.m. We will also have a caregivers program at 11:15 a.m. just prior to the chicken dinner.

Friday, Feb. 10 we will have our “Wheel of Fortune” tournament. If you have not signed up for this, do so immediately. We will have partners for each round. The winners of each round will play off at the end. The first group of players will start at 10 a.m. with the second group starting at 10:30 a.m. and the third at 11 a.m. We are borrowing this program so try to come and see if this would be a game that we could use monthly.

Tuesday, Feb. 14 will be our Valentine’s party with lunch and bingo starting at 10:45 a.m. The menu for the day is; turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing, broccoli/cauliflower salad, hot rolls and baked pumpkin. We will have three games of bingo so make sure you are here by 10:45 a.m.

Wednesday, Feb. 15 will be our Chef Charles program. This will start at 11 a.m. with lunch following at 11:30 a.m.

Thursday, Feb. 16 will be our 5 p.m. birthday party with co-op and bingo. Bring your favorite covered dish with all table service. The drinks will be provided. We hope that the weather continues to be in our favor however if in doubt, call.

Monday, Feb. 20 the site will be closed for President’s Day. If you are in need of meal options, let us know.

Wednesday, Feb. 22 the Mercy Hospital Home Care nurses will be in taking blood pressures and discussing the month’s most important topic, “Healthy Hearts.” They will start the blood pressures at 10:45 a.m. They will be passing out small pocket sized personal record charts that the monthly blood pressures as well as all important health information can be charted.

Tuesday, Feb. 28 we will have our Wii Bowling Tournament. With Valentine’s Day falling on a Tuesday we were unable to have two games this month. The winners of January’s tournament were Willa Dobbs with the high score of 225 and the second tournament was won by Fran McCarthy with the high score of 237.  Way to go both Fran and Willa.

Wednesday, Feb. 29 we will have our last Caregiver’s Program at 11:15 a.m.

Many of you have questioned about a dance. I have been waiting on the dance not knowing what the weather would be. Wouldn’t you know I don’t plan something and the weather is nice? I plan to have a Spring Fling Dance and Meal in April and we will hope to raise money for the siding, windows, guttering and dining room lights. Watch next month for the details.

Many of our shut-in seniors have been expressing their thanks for the Christmas gifts. The local “Dogg’s Dirty Dozen” group in conjunction with the 18-80 Club distributed 37 bagged gifts. We applaud this group for remembering the seniors of our community. This is the third year they have helped support this program.

We also extend a thank you to the AmeriCorps groups from Howar Junior High and Lakeview. The junior high students have worked to make placemats for our Valentine’s Day meal. This will really brighten our table and our meal site. Special treat bags will also be given to all attending this meal. The  Lakeview AmeriCorps students have made centerpieces for each table for Valentine's Day.

The Lakeview students have also made a contribution to the renovation effort. The seniors were very honored to receive a $125 donation from Lakeview AmeriCorps. They spent two weeks collecting pop cans in order to donate money towards the renovation of the 18-80 Club. It was there Martin Luther King, Jr. Day service project.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
