The temperatures may still be warm, however fall is just around the corner and if you come into the building you would think it is already here. The decorating has changed and leaves are falling from the ceiling. We all labored on Labor Day and the seniors enjoyed those last family cookouts for the season.
Tuesday we had our third class with “Better Choices/ Better Health.” Ten seniors are taking the class and they are all very much enjoying it. We have found how our minds play a very important part in our lives and with some weekly action planning we are working toward improving our health status. This is a six week class that will resume on Tuesday, Oct. 1.
The four day trip to the quad-cities has been cancelled. We will look at this again next year maybe. Thirty seniors anxiously await the trip to Alaska this month. The count-down has started.
Saturday, Sept. 7 everyone is invited to “Bingo Blowout” at the Eagles on the Levee in Centerville. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. with food choices of maid-rites, hot dogs, nacho chips with cheese, homemade pie, cookies and bars with several choices of drinks. The cost for packets will be $25 and will include your 12-pack games. Payout with 80 people attending will be $100 per game. Bingo starts at 6 p.m. Proceeds for the evening will go to the meal-site operations located in the 18-80 Club. This money will help assure we have good working appliances.
