18-80 Club plans several trips during fall

CENTERVILLE — As August is upon us we all ask the same question. How much hotter can it get? Remember, seniors are very vulnerable to heat stress and heat strokes. Signs of heat illness includes; heavy sweating/pale skin, skin cool to the touch, dizzy, weak fatigue and fainting, nausea, vomiting, headache, fast heartbeat, fast or shallow breathing, muscle cramps, excessive thirst, confusion or anxiety. Remember, anyone can suffer heat exhaustion or heat stroke. If you suspect a heat illness, seek medical attention immediately. Our building is open from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Come have lunch, enjoy the company of others, play Wii, put puzzles together, play cards or just read the paper and visit. We will look forward to seeing you.

This month we have the opportunity to have some fun at Jackpot Junction in Morton, Minn. This trip will cost only $80 per person based on double occupancy. It will be a three-day trip leaving on Tuesday, Aug. 21 and we will return home on Thursday Aug. 23. This will include; motor coach with two night stay and $65 per person gaming.  You need to sign up as soon as possible so final arrangements and payments can be made. Feel free to call if you have any questions at (641) 856-8627.

Every Tuesday in August we will have some canning sessions. Many of the seniors are sharing their knowledge of canning with the next generation. Let us know if you will be attending so we can have ample supplies.  

Wednesday, Aug. 8 we will have the Appanoose County Public Health nurses in taking blood pressures and in addition to them we will have Ilene Johnson, Prevention Specialist with SIEDA in discussing; “Do You Know What Makes Us More Vulnerable to the Heat and Heat-related Illnesses?” This will begin at 11 a.m. so come early and enjoy the program.    

Thursday, Aug. 9 will be our birthday party with co-op and bingo.  Originally it was scheduled for Aug. 16 but please note this is a correction to the month. Call your friends and tell them if you normally come and sit together. Bring your favorite covered dish and table service and enjoy the evening.

Friday, Aug. 10 we will kick off the State Fair inside the building with the cool weather with some fun games and activities prior to our noon meal of homemade beef and noodles. The games with prizes will start at 11 a.m. so come early and stay late.

Monday, Aug. 13 we will have our Wii bowling tournament. This will be on Monday this month instead of Tuesday because of the canning classes. Last month’s winners went to the Burgin family. Mother Eleanor won the second tournament with her son Jim winning the first tournament.

Wednesday, Aug. 15 will be our Chef Charles Program. Pat with Iowa State Extension and Fitness will be presenting this month’s program.  The topic is "Picking a Better Green Salad.” She will show how just a simple lettuce salad can boost your vitamin A intake by 15 times more as well as six times more vitamin K and lutein by which type you purchase and consume. She will also discuss which snacks provide the most salt and how simple sodium can affect not only our blood pressure but also our kidneys. This program starts at 10:45 a.m. and the chicken dinner will follow at 11:30 a.m.

Thursday, Aug. 16 was to be our birthday party with co-op and this has been changed to Aug. 9 as noted earlier in this article.

Tuesday, Aug. 21 the seniors will head to Morton, Minn. for some cooler weather and fun.

Wednesday, Aug. 22 we will have Mercy Home Care in talking to the seniors about important health issues. The Caregivers Program will follow with chicken dinner at 11:30 a.m.

Friday, Aug. 24 will be our “Dog Days of Summer” party. Bring your thinking cap and an open mind and have fun with the day’s celebrations. The party will start at 11 a.m. with the dinner; chicken alfredo, lima beans, oranges and pudding with whipped topping. Come and have a howling good time.

Thursday, Aug. 30 we will be off to Lakeside for a day trip that costs $20 per person and includes; motor coach, lunch buffet with $10 gaming. The bus leaves at 9 a.m. and will return to Centerville at 5 p.m. You can sign up for this trip starting Monday, Aug. 6. We can only take 55 people, so only the first ones in will get to go.

Looking into September and October we do have a couple of trips planned. At the end of September we will be going to Tama on Sept. 26-27. We will also be going to Redwing, Minn. around Oct. 1 with exact dates to follow and then to Pigeon Forge and the Smoky Mountains Oct. 14-20. This trip includes six nights lodging with four consecutive nights in the Smokiest, 10 meals, guided tour of the Smoky Mountains, four evening shows, two morning shows, tour of Gatlinburg and much more. We do still have a few seats available if you are interested in going. Full payment for this trip must be by Aug. 6. If you are already signed up and have not made full payment please do so. If you want to go and have not made deposit yet you really need to come in ASAP. The meeting for this trip will be held at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2. During this meeting everyone will receive their itinerary, baggage tags and emergency papers.

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.
