They announced the event Tuesday, May 17 at their monthly meeting. “This is in addition to our weekly Thursday Bingo at 12:30,” said President Linda Claiborne.
Claiborne discussed the senior center’s objectives. “Our goal is to raise money so we can have fun events at the center and to plan fun trips for our local seniors,” she said.
The center’s most recent event was the Mothers Day Tea/Luncheon on May 7.
“Our seniors on the move. Having fun and living life to the fullest” is the center’s motto and local seniors and residents are invited to join in on their fun-filled regular events:
• Weekly BINGO every Thursday at 12:30 p.m.
• Potluck Bingo – The third Sunday of every month at 12:30 p.m. Bring your favorite dish!
• KENO- second Monday of every month.
• Monthly board meeting – Third Tuesday of every month at 2 p.m. All community suggestions welcome.
“We are currently looking for volunteers to man the center so local senior residents have a place to go,” said Claiborne. We would like to be open every day at 1 p.m so seniors can come to “beat the heat” of the upcoming summer months. Any volunteer hours to help keep the senior center open for our Seniors would be greatly appreciated”.
“We also need help on the holidays, cleaning up after our dinners.” added board member Lura Beshears.
The center is also available to local residents to rent for private parties, showers, graduations, birthdays, etc. The cost to rent the center is $25, and it comfortably holds 50 people.
