Page 12 New Meadows Senior News Wednesday, September 26, 2012 Join us for Pinocnle if you dare Well I hope everyone has had a good week. I have tried to stay inside and out of this smoke; wow, it is something else. I will be glad when it is all cleared out. It really makes you appreciate our wonderful views that we have and can't see at the moment, also our fresh clean air that we normally breathe in. Here at the seniors the air is good, so come on over and join us for some good eating and good company! We serve 3 days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday, at 5:30 p.m. Then you could come early and play a game or build a puzzle. If you know how to play the piano come and do so, we would love it. The people here love music of any kind, so if you can play an instrument and would like to come and entertain us just give me a call. We will be having Flu Shots on October 5th from 10:00 AM -I:00--PM. The community is welcome to come and get their shots. The cost is $29.99 and Medicare, Medicaid and some insurance are accepted. So mark your calendars now so you won't forget the date. Come and play Bingo on October 3rd at 7 p.m. The whole family will love this for a game night, so The Adams County Record bring the kids and join us. Hopefully win some prizes and have a fun time. We have our trip to McCall on October 4, leaving at 9:00 PM, so call if you want to go with us. If you have any appointments or need to get groceries, please come and join us. The cost for the bus is a $4 By Penny Dreyer donation for 60 plus, it is $10 for everyone else. Pinochle players come join us for a game!! We have some good competition for anyone who plays the game, if you dare!! We play on Friday afternoons from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Hope to see you here soon!! Cambridge Senior Chatter Extra food from the food bank I got a phone call this last week from the food bank asking if I wanted to participate in an "Emergency Direct Distribution" event. I asked about it and I was told that the food bank had extra perishables that needed to be given away and wanted us to participate. I said yes, and since then I have been trying to call everyone who has been to a pantry before to let them know about this event. It will be held on Wednesday, September 26th, at 10:30. It will probably be chaotic, but we'll get 'er done some how. The Pantry will be open at its regular time in case I missed getting in touch with some people. Our next shopping trip to Ontario will be on Tuesday October 9th. If you would like to come with us, please give me a call here at the center or come in and sign up on our trip sheet on the front table. Don't forget about our "Bring a friend to Dinner" meal on October 10th. I do need reservations in advance (at least by 10/3). Our guests won't be too impressed if there isn't enough food to go around, so let me know soon! The meal will be chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, broccoli- cauliflower salad, rolls, by ]anice Vuich Cawyer- 257-3358 mixed vegetables and chocolate Crme pie. I haven't heard from anyone about helping out at the Taco Feed for the "October Trek" Bicyclers on Saturday, October 6th from 5 to 7 PM. Please call me here at the center if there is a possibility that you will be able to help out. Laurel Sherman is going to be cooking that evening, so the food will be great, we just need to have some support people in place to help her out. You can call me here at the center at 257- 3358. I hope you have a great week. Silver & Gold Hot chockolot crisis averted Here's what's happening at the Council Senior Center this next couple of weeks. The bus to Ontario will be leaving on October 4, at 4:30 p.m. October 17th is flu shots. We have someone coming from the clinic. And then stay for lunch. It starts at 11:00 AM. We are back doin.g Bingo, and Friday, September 28 will be our next Bingo. I am going to start going again. I dropped out for a while, but I want to support our center, and every little bit helps. Thank you to those who came out for our Taco feed. I missed it. The fearless foursome were out celebrating birthdays. (Patty, Ron, Ray and me of course.) I am asking everyone for some consideration concerning the food bank distribution. We will be getting a delivery on Wednesday, but we need time to sort and separate the items the center purchased and what is available to us. So maybe come on Friday. I will be there on Wednesday playing as big bad girl and keeping people out. Oh I'm loving this. Ha! Ha! Really last month was a nightmare. In November sometime we will be having a guest from SHBA to help with filling out the SS business and explain the Part D. It will be time for sign up again. And I know it is always confusing. Remember our Craft Fair will be October 27, starting at 9:00 AM. If you have some handiwork you wish to sell, call the center and reserve a table. A large table is $10.00; card table size is $5.00. We will have lunch if you so wish to purchase. I don't know yet what will be served. q-here are always lots of neat things there. Come and see what we have to offer. Boy did you see that sunset on Thurs night? It was so red and bright. I am sure wishing this smoke would go away. My nose is so sore from sneezing and wiping. My ears itch and throat tickles. We have a new cook, and her name is Christine. I wish her the very best. It's a big job, not one I would like to undertake. Last night when I couldn't go to sleep I was thinking of Alice Deeds and her partner in crime, Elinore Riggin. I wish they were still here. Every time I go By Shirley WilsOn up the canyon outside of Cambridge I think of Elinore. Well have I bored you enough? Until next week .... Oh, I forgot to tell you our coffee pot bit the dust and an unnamed source made a trip to Weiser and BiMart and got us a new one. So now Ray and Ralph can have their hot "chockolot." We will now have some happy campers. Anyway thank you for the gesture. Bear Facts Most of the news from Bear is the fire on Smith Mt. As of the meeting Saturday evening at the schoolhouse, this is the information from Beth Lund who has been with the Forest Service 35 years and working with fires for 25 years. The fire up Bear Creek is burning on alpine fir, which she says is very difficult, but she feels "they" are in good shape. There are 60 work- ing the Bear fire, and they O II " Friday Monday o Cattle Sale Butcher Cattle Sale lo:oo AM io:oo AM 2rid & 4th Saturday o ". ,,,  Pigs, sheep, and goats |1 1901 E.

Mark Davis and his friend, Jake Rupe, are staying at Arlen Warner's. Mark got a deer first day out, and took it to Council to be taken By Tina Warner -- 258-4471 care of. Billy and Wendy Jordan visited along the Creek and brought some very good ears of corn for us to enjoy. Ben Warner and children, Charles and Eva, are moving to Bear. Sam and Sarah and Joe Warner helped with the move. Charles and Eva entertained their great grandmother while the moving was going on.
