Senior Citizens Planning A Great Year Ahead

Last Friday, the group met at the Senior Citizen building on Broadway for their monthly meeting and to plan the year ahead.

Treasurer, Judy Roessler, alerted the group to the low balance in the checking account and the need to cash in the CD which had been set aside for a new roof in the future.

Utilities run about $350 a month and insurance costs raised $46 this year.

As a fundraiser, the group decided to hold a bakeless bake sale as well as possibly having a yard sale during the town wide yard sale. Several other options were mentioned and future plans will be made.

The program committee offered their suggestions and they were approved by the group.

Next month the group will meet at Bob's TV and Furniture on Feb. 20th at 1 p.m; Lori Taylor will talk on "What to Look for When Buying Furniture." Here is your chance to learn how to shop for that new sofa or recliner.

Come join the group; everyone is welcome. Jeanette Lafayette and Virginia Ross promise a sumptuous dessert back at the center afterwards.

In Community Outreach, the Seniors are welcoming the 4H club's use of the building about three times a year for an "on-hands" meeting for possibly cake decorating or sewing.

The Center is available to the community for meetings, family reunions, business seminars, etc. with donation requested so, if you need a space with a kitchen and restrooms, contact Judy Roessler (924-1724) or Pauline Oge (924-1566) to schedule a date.
