The Adams County Record Wednesday, September 19, 2012 Page 9 New Meadows Senior News :j By Penny Dreyer Well we had a great time in the park this past Friday night! Great food and great music, the Jammers; everyone had a good time I would say. We drew for our raffle and the win- ner of the pot was Julie Spellman, our Mayor of New Meadows! Congrats! They received $902; we sold 431 tickets this year not too bad. Thanks to our community!! Well we are still having Bingo every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month. We don't have a bigcrowd, but we still have fun. Won't you come and join us? It starts at 7:00 PM and is over by 9:00 PM. The cost is only $3.25 (each) for thewhole night, if you play only one card. Cheap entertainment for the fam- ily! We have a progressive blackout pot, it is never too big because we don't have lots of players, so come on over and play and let's get the pot bigger! We would like to play pinochle on Friday after- noons at 3:00 PM, but we don't have enough players. So could you help us in that area also! These guys love their pinochle!! We are open 3 days a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. We serve din- ner at 5:30 PM,.but you are welcome to come by and visit us anytime. We have all kinds of games to play and puzzles to build.

If you would like to have a table they will be $15 each and you should contact me to reserve one. Hope everyone has a good weekend and stay out of the smoke if you can! Silver & Gold sin By Shirley Wilson I guess by now you have heard we are in need of a new cook. Our beloved Jerry is leaving us at the end of this month. She has been a great asset to the center, and I for one will miss her and the wonderful meals she prepared for us. She has put way more into the center than she got paid for. It will be hard to full her shoes. I wish her the very best in whatever she tries to attain in her next endeavor. Now on to the announcements for the next few weeks. First off, October 10th will be our regular foot clinic A nurse from McCall comes to Council to treat our fellow seniors. The cost is $15.00. If you are in.terested, call the center and make an appointment. Next is Oct 17~; we will have a nurse here to give us flu shots, and she will probably give pneumonia shots also. Time will be from lh00 AM to 1:00 PM. While you are there, stay for lunch. Oct 27th is our annual Craft Fair from 9:00 AM until ? We will have lunch, (don't know yet what it will be). Call the center to reserve your table. Large tables are $10.00; small tables are $5.00. The bus from McCall goes the third Saturday of each month, and it is no cost. It leaves the senior center at 9:30 AM. We are playing cards on Tuesdays after lunch, and Wednesdays at 10:30 is exercise class. Please feel free to join us. Our next Bingo will be Friday the 28th. Just a reminder we do rent out the center if you need a venue for a special event. If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 741-2417. I will try to answer your questions or I will find an answer. Until next week, have a good one and be safe. Maybe we can see our sky clear up from all the smoke. Sure is playing with my sinuses. Cambridge Senior Chatter THOMASON FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORY Family Owned ~ld Operated I made it back to our exercise class this morning, and I must say I am glad to be back. I have missed my exercise friends and our conversations while walking. They have added several new exercises to the stretch portion of the class that are designed to strengthen our "core" as well as the addition of weights to our routine. I have a ways to go to get back to where I was when I stopped going, but I'm determined to get back some of my youthful vigor, and the only way to do that is to exercise. If you have thought about exercising, please come and join us on any Monday, Wednesday or Friday morning at 9:00 AM. We are usually done by 10:00 or a teensy bit after; it's a great way to - Burial Services - Pre.planning Optiom - Cremation Services- - Monuments 221 E.

If any of you are interested in joining us this year to sing, try to come this week or next. We always need singers. You don't have to be a great singer, just be able to blend with the others in your section. We meet each Monday night from now until December 9th when we present our annual "Christmas Concert" at the Washington county fairgrounds exhibit hall. It's a lot of fun, plus you will amaze yourself at how much you learn about music. When I first started, I couldn't read a note and didn't know what any of the symbols meant, I just had the desire to sing. Now, I still can't read a note of music, but I do know what forte and pianissimo means, and if the next note I see is higher than the last, I go up, and if its lower I go down. Now there are those of us that are able to read music, who know what key the piece is in and what that key sounds like, but I'm not one of them... What I'm getting at is you don't have to have talent to sing with us, just the desire. If you ever had a hankering to sing someplace besides the shower, come and join "r CALDWELL 454-9532 BOISE 343-0471 I Cat'tic Sale I } Butcher Cattle Sale I Pigs, sheep, and goats "~'" 1901E.

Ursula made Rueben sandwiches for us last Friday, and they were delicious. Of course we have a few kinks to work out, but next time you see them on the menu, come and eat with us, I think you will be pleasantly surprised. On Wednesday, October 10th we are having a "Bring a friend to dinner day" where the guests you bring eat for free. I'm hoping that by you inviting friends or acquaintances, that aren't members already, for dinner at the center that they might want to, join us more often and perhaps become members. The only draw back is that I will need reservations in advance so that we will have enough food. The menu that day will be Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, broccoli-cauliflower salad, rolls, mixed vegetables and chocolate cr~me pie. Please call me at your earliest convenience to let me know who you will be bringing. On Saturday, October 6th we will be having a special fundraiser for the "October Trek" bike ride. Riders from all over will do a two-day 85-mile ride down the Weiser Trail, and we will be providing a Taco Feed for the riders on that night, complete with music. I won't be able to attend this one as I work that day from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM, so we will need lots of extra help. I think Laurel Sherman will be doing the cooking that night and running the Kitchen crew. If you can help, please give me a call here at the center at 257- 3358. I think I've gone on long enough so, until next time I hope you are well and happy and that you start thinking who you might be inviting to dinner on the 10th of October.
