Garden Valley Senior Center News: Bring Your Own…Pool Table?

  Bodaciously outrageous, but yes—we need your pool table or we can’t play! The idea sprang forth from many locations ala the paradigm of recombinant conceptualization, or as MacAngel would say, the “survival of the fittest concept”. The point is, when thinking up ways to have fun, lots of folk came up with this table idea and the Center would like to encourage people to stop in and play a game of pool and we need a pool table to fulfill that dream. Got pool table?
  4th Tuesday features BBQ Chicken and Hot Dogs on the menu for our Cookout on the Deck, Tuesday, July 23, at 6 or so. Board members will provide the fixin's, including Macaroni Salad, Baked Beans, Potato Salad, Corn Salad and Desserts (including Rhubarb Crisp). Ken Patterson and Friends will provide the MUSIC!
   The 4th of July breakfast and our first Friday BINGO games were so very successful, we have big heads and big thoughts. As the Senior Center is looking to find a new direction, after losing all funding we'd been receiving from the government to pay our coordinator, cook, and helper, we are extremely grateful to everyone for this show of support. 

  The Center looks forward to coming up with new and inventive ways of serving the community at large, as well as the senior citizen population. Everyone is invited to come in on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays, from 10 - 12 noon, to speak with the volunteer coordinators and give your suggestions, ideas, and voice your willingness to volunteer, or just chat with them.

  New board president, Ruth Richter, says, “We want your input and encourage you to be part of the solution as we look to the future of what the GVSC can be in Garden Valley. We believe the possibilities are mind-boggling and are enthusiastic to try some of those new possibilities."
  Granny's Closet continues to be a gathering place on Fridays, 12-5 and Saturdays, 10-4, for happy shoppers chatting with each other as well as with the Granny running the shop, and sometimes vying for a special purchase. 

  Look for a unique opportunity on the weekend of July 19 and 20, for a great selection of antiques, vintage, and collectible items. These things won't be the usual Granny prices but compared to any antique store, they will still be a huge bargain. 

  Granny's continues to have a wide selection of shorts and tees, with additional ones added on a daily basis. If you need summer wear with only a small investment, Granny has all sizes and styles. And while you're shopping, you might just spot some bit of pottery, a dish, a gadget, books or puzzles, or that little something you didn't know you wanted but decide you just have to have.

  July in summer sizzles but don’t fizzle out and lump into a chaise longue potato. E-Z exercise queen, Ione, will help with that but you must stand up, put one foot in front of the other, pick up the keys (heaven forbid we should walk) and get that car to the Senior Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:00 p.m. The stretching and muscle contracting will make you feel great enough to join in on the sweets afterwards! Free class for all.

   Come try out YOGA with Shanti, who is traveling from Lowman to lead free classes. This is a seriously wonderful class for everyone at their own level, so if you have stress, get to the Center for this one. Her second class is Friday, July 19, at 10 a.m., then regular Friday classes start on August 9. Bring a mat or slip-proof rug.
  This big, happy, comfortable room is available for your events, small and large, short and long. Contact the Center for your party needs.

  Call the Center between 10 and 12 a.m., Mon, Wed and Fri, to reach a real person and try other times too. Leave a message and some happy volunteer will give a ring back: 462-3943 or e-mail Check us out on Facebook too. The Senior Center is located at 261 S. Middle Fork Road, around a couple of corners from downtown Crouch.
