Shop, Eat and Be Merry at the GV Senior Center!

No, the work at Granny's is not done by little elves; it does not
happen by gets done mostly by three of these
hearty volunteers. Guess who? I'll give you hints!
L-R, are Ron Richter*, Anjali DeWitt Angel,
Ruth Richter*, Peggy Ashton Parker*, and Marla Patterson.
   It’s that time of year—la lahh, la lahh, la la--oh clich├ęs are so appropriate and it’s a good song anyway.The shopping continues in Granny’s Closet. First, get your holiday decorations in order. Thanksgiving is on the shelves and Christmas items are ready to get you in the mood: Granny will have Christmas clothing, tree decorations, decor for tables, mantels, doors, and there are plenty of yuletide gifts. All holiday merchandise prices are by donation, meaning whatever you choose to pay.

  Heavier winter apparel is on the racks, and in the coming weeks, she’ll have snowsuits, ski outfits, winter coats, boots and lOur ots of thick, heavy sweaters! Granny likes to encourage sledding and has some sleds for you too. Granny’s regular hours are every Friday, 1-5 and Saturday, 10-4.

  If you have problems with balance, notice your strength is waning, or feel you simply need to stretch it out and move, but you don’t get outside to do it, join the group of Fit and Fall-Proof exercisers at the Center. Ione leads an effective and free class at 3:00 p.m., every Tuesday and Thursday. Everyone is welcome.

  If you don’t like eating alone, the tasty meals at the Center provide camaraderie and a good deal: Dinner is a $5 donation, for those over 60; $6, adults under 60; and $4, under 12. Breakfast costs $5, for adults under 60; $3, under 12; and for over 60, we suggest a $4 donation.

Dinner is served every Wednesday and Friday at 5:30 p.m. Come early for the Salad Bar (always included with meal), if you like, and spend more time with friends. Breakfast is served every Thursday (except Thanksgiving) at 9:30 a.m.. It always includes a nice Egg dish, some kind of poor Mr. Pig, Hashed Browns or Hotcakes or French Toast and usually some kind of fruit. All beverages are included

  If you have the need for wifi or computer use, stop in during our open hours—free to the public: Wed and Fri, all day til 6, and Thurs, 9-12.

  Remember the Senior Center thrives because of our volunteer friends. If you find yourself with a few hours a week that cry for some meaningful activity, call Judy Delvalle, our coordinator, and help us out. We could probably use you in the office, kitchen, or for some building maintenance—if you have the time, we have the job!

  We are located at 261 S. Middle Fork Road, Crouch/GV. For info on seniors’ services, Meals on Wheels, or our Building Rental, call 208-62-3943 or write Judy at
