As we start off the month of June we are anxious to have the warmer weather to enjoy. School will be out and remember to watch closely while driving for the young children as they play. Those that went on the Washington, D.C. trip, I have group pictures in, and anyone that would like to have one can stop by to get it. Better than just stopping by call and make reservations and have lunch with us. I have three group settings and you can choose the one you like the best.
Monday, June 2 was the first day you could sign-up for the Tama trip to be June 30 and July 1. The cost of this trip is $50 per person based on double occupancy and $70 per single. This will include transportation on the motor coach, lodging, $40 in gaming and two $5 food vouchers. I will only be able to take 55 so get in early to make your reservations on the bus.
Wednesday, June 4 we had Susan Howard from the Department for the Blind in visiting with the seniors about programs available for the vision impaired. She has given several program options and if you were unable to attend and are interested in seeing what she had to offer, stop by and I will be happy to help get you the needed services.
Tuesday, June 10 we will have our Wii bowling tournament. We will try to have three heats with four players in each heat. Get signed up for the time slot that works best for you. The over-all winners receive five free meals and several gift items.
Wednesday, June 11 we will have Kevin with Humana in showing on the large 77 inch screen with surround sound speakers the movie “God Save Our Farm.” We will have pop and popcorn during the movie and it will start at 10 a.m. We will also be distributing the “Farmer’s Market” coupons today from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Limited coupons are available so make sure you get yours as soon as possible. Any senior 60 or older that lives in the service area with a yearly income per single of less than $21,590 or married couple with income less than $29,101 is eligible. You will receive for each person a onetime packet of $30 to be used for fresh fruits and vegetables at participating venders. We do have venders in our area accepting these this year. The checks are in $3 increments and you will receive 10 of these. If you have any questions about this, feel free to call (641) 856-8627 or stop by 922 W. State St. in Centerville. Appanoose County Public Health nurses will be in today taking blood pressures today from 10:45-11:30 a.m. We do appreciate their monthly assistance.
