Senior Center: Last Chance for Tax Help!

      Take advantage of Dan Gasiorowski’s expertise at no charge – as a representative for AARP, he can make your tax headache less excruciating, if not totally alleviated. You need a magic wand for that! Stop in on Friday, March 29, at 2:00 p.m., and bring any papers you need.
 Granny's Closet has Baskets galore waiting for your bunny to pick them up—and lots of toys, trinkets and gifts for any age are here at ridiculously low prices.
  Linens, big blankets and baby blankets, curtains and rods, buttons and sewing, crafts and pillows, towels and bath accessories, and hardware for a variety of needs are all here waiting to be discovered. Sunglasses, office paraphernalia, toiletries, wallets, canes, pots and pans—keep coming back to see what you missed.
  Granny’s Closet, as Granny says, is a win-win situation. Patrons get a chance to give to a good cause; patrons then step through the door and purchase all sorts of bargains; the money then gets filtered into helping the Senior Center stay on its feet and is also given back into the community.

Senior Center board members making big decisions: L-R, Center
Coordinator, Judy Delvalle, CJ Scharf, Ron Richter,
Rich Smith and Jayne Carlson (with strange cookie-munching face).

  Last week, the board voted to give a grant to the GV Syringa Club to support the publication of a book of poetry/prose by residents over 60. This will have ramifications of the good kind—to highlight the talent of our public (or closet) senior writers and to raise funds to help Syringa continue to serve the valley. All of you who help Granny’s can feel proud to be a part of this ongoing community co-op.
  Granny’s is open on Fridays, from 12—5, and Saturdays, 11—4.
  Our summer fund raiser is going to be a Home Tour. If you know of a spectacular home, or interesting historical home or a totally artsy/craftsy/unique home that you can recommend, please let us know. There must be places that have piqued your curiosity—let us hear about it.
  A little flab hanging over the side? Breathing too hard after a trudge to the ice cream man and back? Too tired to throw Fido’s ball more than five times…or can you throw it at all? Hmmm. Ione is the gal for you. Join the exercise club on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 3-4:15, then hang for awhile and chat with some lovely ladies. Does it sound like I’m trying to badger some fellas into joining up? Yes, indeed. At no cost but a sore muscle or two…or ego. Don’t knock it if you haven’t tried it, guys.
  Breakfast here on Thursdays at 9:30 is a nice way to pass a social hour. All ages are welcome in our center: $3, children under 12; $4, donation only for over 60; and $5, under 60.
  6:00 is dinnertime, Wednesdays and Fridays. Come early and dance. Ha. Gotcha! Why not? Ask the cook to turn up the player – we’ve got the dance floor, you’ve got the moves.
  This Friday, 3/29: If Beef Pot Roast with Potatoes and Veggies tickle your tummy, better show up and start with Salad Bar and finish with Jell-O and fruit. Prices feel good enough to make you want to come again.
  So try it next Wednesday—feel good with down-home Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Veggies, Salad Bar, and choice of Lemon or Chocolate Cake. Bring the family.
  All this and beautiful people to dine with, for only $4, kids under 12; $5, donation for 60+; and $6, under 60.
  BINGO starts on April 5, first Friday, after dinner. Prizes will be redeemable at local businesses. Stay tuned.
  The Center is open on Wednesday and Friday, 12-7, and Thursday, 8-10:30. Call Judy Delvalle at 462-3943 or mail Visit us at 261 S. Middle Fork Rd, GV/Crouch.
