4th Tuesday Dinner!

One of these people will not be showing her tartan undies at Dinner.
Old Diehards (Richters & MacAngel) will be there
for Pancake Breakfast too! AUGUST 31.
   4th Tuesday is August 27—brace yourselves for the Grannies’ special entertainment and look forward to enjoying yourselves with Smoked Turkey Roast, Potato Casserole, Vegetables, Salads provided by the Grannies, and Rhubarb Crisp for dessert. By donation.

    Last Thursday’s lasagna dinner with guests from the Meridian Senior Center was another success. Thank you for everyone who attended—it felt like the old days.

    Monday Lunches started with several “single” fellows wanting a light repast at noon and they got what they asked for: Soup or sandwiches, some fruit, leftovers from dinner, just like home. Anyone is welcome, just drop your donation into the box and join the guys at noon, every Monday.

  Anyone wanting to cook up a pot, slap some nice sandwiches together, or provide your favorite dish for Mondays can call 462-3943 and let volunteers know.

  Granny’s Closet is still sizzling with great summer apparel and everything you might need for those camping and holiday cabin emergencies. There are always nice gifts to pick up for someone, good books to keep cool with and housekeeping necessities. If you like poking about for small discoveries, stop in on Fridays, from 12—5 and Saturdays, 10-4, and take your time.

  The Center is still dreaming about a pool table deal. If you have one you would like to either donate or sell at a good price, why not give us a call?

  The Syringa Club is moving along with its fundraiser Poetry/Prose/Art Book, with contributions by Boise County residents over 50, but the community hasn’t exactly responded with pants afire. Black and white sketches and photography are wanted and essays up to 800 words and poetry up to 40 lines are very welcome. The club is a service-oriented group of women who donate to community organizations and individuals but fundraising is only possible with generous cooperation. If you feel you have something to offer, contact Angel at 462-2511 or

  Yoga class by Shanti happens here every Friday, from 10-11:30. The word is that everyone is loving the classes and Shanti may have to start a yoga/meditation class soon, for serious practitioners. There is no charge for these classes. Bring a mat or rug and come prepared to relax and change your life.

   Ione’s Fit and Fall-Proof exercise classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3 are just what the doctor orders for general health benefits. Men and women are welcome; there is no floorwork unless you prefer to bring a mat and adjust your work-out. This is perfect for the stretch, light strengthening, and balance-work needed for anyone. Classes are free, and plan on staying afterwards for light refreshments.

  The Senior Center building is a good deal for any meetings or events you may have. Prices are reasonable and better if you are a member. Rentals can include the kitchen, and we also rent out tables and chairs for your needs at home.

    Hours for the Center are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 10 a.m. to noon, and whenever Granny’s is open, and whenever we have events. Contact volunteers at 462-3943 or Wifi, books for reading, and movies are available. Stop in and say hi!
