New Year at 18-80 Club

CENTERVILLE — All the seniors at the 18-80 Club wish you a very Happy New Year! We look forward to an even better new year in 2012. If you are new to the area or just haven’t tried what the site has to offer, this is a great time to do so. We would love to have you stop by and see our wonderful facility and get a monthly schedule.

We start the month off on the Jan. 10 with a Wii bowling tournament. This will start at 10 a.m. with brackets being run every half hour. The start of the New Year allows everyone back in the running to be the monthly winner. So, game on again for all. Winners from all brackets will have the play-off just after lunch.  

Wednesday, Jan. 11 we will have the Appanoose County Public Health nurses in taking blood pressures. This will start at 10:30 a.m. and run until the meal at 11:30 a.m. Our weekly caregiver’s session will be just before lunch also.

Friday,  Jan. 13 we will have a special day with the meal being; ham balls, scalloped potatoes, broccoli and apple raisin crisp with ice cream for the ones eating in. Bingo will be played at 10:45 a.m. just prior to lunch.

Monday, Jan. 16 is Martin Luther King Day and the site will be closed. If you need a meal option for this day, be sure to discuss it with the staff prior to Friday, Jan. 13.

Wednesday, Jan. 18 we will have Gail Smith with Iowa State Extension in giving the monthly Chef Charles Program at 10:45 a.m. Gail will also be giving the daily exercise session. Some of the seniors enjoy walking in the building before lunch. If you are interested in doing this just ask someone at the desk and we will be glad to discuss it with you.

Thursday, Jan. 19 will be the January birthday party with co-op and bingo at 5 p.m. Bring your favorite covered dish and table service and enjoy the night. We only pray that the weather will continue to be as nice as it is now, however if you are in doubt if there is going to be an event remember to always call prior to coming.

Monday, Jan. 23 we will have “Deal or No Deal.”  The menu for the day is; spaghetti, green beans, seven-layer salad, pears, orange juice and hot bread sticks. The game will start at 10:45 a.m., so plan to be in early. This game is played with each table against the other table of seniors. As we always use to say, two heads are better than one.

Wednesday, Jan. 25 we will have the Mercy Home Care Nurses in with a program on blood pressures and they will also be taking blood pressures prior to lunch.

Tuesday, Jan. 31 will the second Wii Bowling Tournament for the month. Call to sign up or stop by the office while you are in eating and get in on the fun.

I remind you that Feb. 7 will be the trip meeting for 2012. We will be voting on the one-day trips, three-day trips and have the brochures available for the longer trips with dates and costs. This meeting will start at 3 p.m. I will again remind you if the weather is not on our side, always call before driving to the club.

Another reminder as we start into another year, dues need to be paid. Once again this year they are $10 per person. Many of you ask if we would raise this amount and to anyone that feels they could afford to give a little extra that would be fine.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about rental permit fees. The Centerville City Council has conducted two working sessions and a third one is planned in order to get a feel for the public's appetite about raising rental permit fees from charging a landlord $25 every two years to charging a certain amount per rental unit per year. So, the question of the week is, "Are you in favor of Centerville increasing rental permit fees?"

A. I'm in favor.
B. I'm not in favor.
C. I'm not sure.
