The Adams County Record New Meadows Senior News Wednesday, July 25, 2012 Page 9 By Penny Dreyer Well we are still here! The center has signed a contract with CCOA and is back to business as usual. We still have some kinks to work out, but I am confident that all will be fine. We have had a busy summer so far. I am not sure where it has gone! Our yard sale was just okay, a lot of work for what we made, but some is better than none. We haven't had a lot of luck with fundraisers this year. Our luck will change with our Labor Day Pie sale. That is our next one coming up, it will be here before you know it! Hope to see people come for Bingo in August. All ages welcomed! It will be the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. The cost is only 50 cents a card per game, and $1 for the black out, we play a total of 10 games. Come for an evening of fun and prizes! Like to play cards? Come on in on Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. and )oin us in pinochle or any other game we might have. Join us on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for a delicious meal at 5:30 pm. All ages are welcome to come! You won't regret it; we have the best food in town! Hope to see you soon! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Try to stay cool! Cambridge Senior Chatter Y we re In by ]anice Vuich Cawyer -- 257-3358 Our BBQ Pulled Pork Feed is only two weeks away! I hope you have marked your calendars and are ready for some great food and fine entertainment from the Council Jammers. I sure am. After the stress of the past few weeks, I'm ready to let my hair down and howl at the moon well, maybe not quite, but you get the drift. It's time to relax and have some fun. We did sign with CCOA last week, and although we don't like the terms, some money coming in is better than none. But as you can guess with only 12 hours allotted to the cook and myself some things will be changing. Ursula will devote all her time to her prep day on Tuesday and the meal on Wednesday. CCOA is allotting us 3 hours for an assistant cook, so we are going to use those hours for Fridays and just make the menu really simple: like homemade soup and sandwiches. Friday's aren't as well attended as the Wednesday meal, and the membership has agreed that keeping things on Wednesday as close to normal as possible, so we can still have the food we love and our pies and desserts, is a good thing. We don't have a driver for Meals on Wheels anymore, so we will be looking for volunteers to take the meals out to people after the meal at the center is over. q-he meals on Wheels people will still get a hot meal, but it will be later in the day. If you have an interest in volunteering to help out the volunteer's we have already lined up, please let me know. The people who receive these meals appreciate the fact that -- 1) They are getting a hot home cooked meal and 2) They are getting to see a person who cares about their welfare. And our volunteer's, as good as they are, need a break once in a while as well. So please call if you can help in any way, call 257- 3358. The temperature has been in the 90's and 100's lately, and that can cause problems for us as we age. It seems as though our temperature regulators go a bit wonky. We might not sweat as much or feel thirst when our bodies need liquid. So it's important to remind yourself to drink plenty of fluids. If your urine is dark, it means that you're not getting enough liquids. If you know an elderly person without air conditioning, be sure to check in on them at least once a day, or if you have air conditioning, invite them over during the hottest part of the day. Overheating can be serious and even cause death especially in the very young and the elderly. Until next time, stay cool and comfy. Pastor's Corner I have a very bad habit at night: I really like a candy bar or ice cream before I go to bed. I've talked to a lot of folks that can relate! We like sugar - it seems to satisfy us. As God speaks to me, I get the feeling he is telling me that I am the same way with him. We all like to hear the sweet things of God because it satisfies our souls. But we seem to forget that it is not all sweetness and sugar m God keeps showing me Deuteronomy 28:45-47. It says, "If you refuse to listen to the Lord your God and to obey the commands and laws he has given you, all these curses will pursue and overtake you until you are destroyed. These horrors will serve as a sign and warning among you and your descendants forever. Because you have not served the Lord your God with joy and enthusiasm for the abundant benefits you have received." I stop and wonder if I and others are not listening. God loves us, but he asks us to do what he says. We don't speak of judgment or hell or eternal damnation because it's not all sweet and sugary. But in the book of Revelation it tells us to listen and hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches, and we are the church. It speaks to us about the end of by ]on Sorg time here on earth and how all will be judged and sentenced. Are you going to Heaven? I pray so, but the truth is there is only one way. God's way. The souls of your family and friends are at risk. If you love someone, please talk to them now! Eternaldamnation is forever!
