October is upon us with all its beauty. We will enjoy the cooler weather and the beautiful colors.
Our Better Choices/Better Health classes will end on Oct. 15 of this month and those taking the classes have really enjoyed them. The classes will be offered again in the spring, so if you were not able to sign-up for them this fall maybe you will be able to take them then.
On Wednesday, Oct. 9 we will have a flu clinic held at the building. The Appanoose County Public Health Nurses will be hosting the clinic. This will be open to the public from 9-11:30 a.m. The cost for the shot is $25 unless you have Medicare and then you MUST provide your medical cards to receive them free. No appointment is necessary.
On Friday, Oct. 11 we will have bingo prior to the noon meal. The menu for the day is pulled pork on bun, acorn squash, creamed peas, tropical fruit and vegetable juice. Bingo will start at 11 a.m. with the meal to follow at 11:30 a.m.
