Senior Center Cook-Out Tuesday, July 23

   Granny Big Cheese and Peggy Limey Luver had been stashing for months and Granny's finally had a successful "Antiques, Collectibles and Vintage" sale last week-end. 
If you are missing Renee Smith at the reception desk,
try to catch her at Granny's Closet!
  This week-end, July 26-27, the theme will be "Lighthouses and Ocean-Related Things" and they will also be featuring exercise equipment with a lot of weights, DVDs, clothing, and other items related to sweating. Summer apparel and wares can be found throughout the shop, so stop in for your fix anytime between 12-5, on Friday and 10-4, on Saturday.
  BBQ Chicken, Brats and Hot Dogs are a-comin’ on 4th Tuesday, July 23, 6 p.m. The Senior Center board will bring the fixin’s: Corn Salad, Baked Beans, Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad, Desserts (Rhubarb Crisp for one) and the music will be supplied by Ken Patterson and Friends. Show up by 6 p.m. and get the show on the road. Bring the family and drop whatever you want into the donation box.
  Other news on the food front is Lunch, possibly consisting of homemade Soup, Bread, or Sandwiches or other lunchy items and maybe a sweet, for the old friendly, neighborly get-together once a week. Keep your antennae tuned.
  Foot Clinic ladies will be here on August 14, IF a couple more people sign up, at $20 each. All takers have said it feels divine, while sprucing up the tootsies, and is well worth having a session. Call to add your name to the list of swooners: 462-3943.
  MOVIE NIGHT this Friday, July 26, at 6:30 --no charge. Stop in and relax around the screen and watch an almost oldie--this is the movie where Brad Pitt made his pitch for ladies' hearts, in "A River Runs Through It". If you have a favorite you’d like to have shown or if you have a preference for "oldies but goodies" or foreign films or whatever, let our volunteers know. The Movie Corner is now very comfy and cozy with sofas, so it’s perfect for watching the screen. Popcorn and sodas for a small fee.
  Yoga is here: Shanti has come from Lowman to lead sessions the past two weeks and starting the 9th of August, will be here every Friday morning at 10 a.m. If you have stress in your life, you need YOGA! This class is free and is all about you. Relax, gently move into position and let the stress flow out. Bring a mat or slide-proof rug.
  Fit & Fall-Proof exercise class, by Ione, is gentle stretching, strength-building and easy for anyone. Join this free class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, at 3:00 p.m., and stay for coffee and low-calorie sweets after the sweats. If you want to shop Granny's for some work-out gear, Ione will let you in.
  Board president, Ruth Richter, commented at the last meeting that she has never been involved with an organization where a few people made decisions without membership input. This is the time to get involved with your senior center—don’t leave it all up to the board! Ruth has started sending e-mails to the senior’s membership. If you have an e-mail address, please send an e-mail to, to get your address set up.
  Building Rental prices for the Center are quite reasonable and remember, for your $5 (active) membership, you get half off: $60, less than 8 hours; $100, 8-24 hours; with kitchen use, $100. For your separate events, folding chairs, $1 each; and tables, $10 each.
Refundable deposits of $50, for room, kitchen use and take-out rentals.
  Volunteers will be at the Center to answer phones or welcome visitors on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 10-12. The phone will be answered during Granny’s hours and odd hours also. Call 462-3943 or e-mail above.
  The Senior Center is the Center for All Ages. Wifi is available inside and out.
  Located at 261 S. Middle Fork Road, Crouch/GV. See you soon!
