Another big THANK YOU to Shepherd Premier’s Steve and Theresa Maskrey for treating many of our seniors to Harvard Radio Station’s chicken dinner fundraiser at Joe and Tammy’s! Our group was well-served by one of the “Two Bald Guys and a Microphone” (Tim or Deek) who’s program airs every Monday morning on 101.3 FM 6am-9am. Tune in to this positive, encouraging, informative and humorous way to start your week!

Make and Take
Laura Zaraza of Stampin up is here one Monday of every month (check your calendar) to lead us in making beautiful hand-made cards. Anyone can do it! It takes about an hour. We have excellent conversations while creating one-of-a-kind greeting cards. Please join us.
SLEDDING & SNOW
Watch for our first good snow storm and the sledding to begin out back! Please remember to wait until the plows have had a chance to make our roads and parking lot safe. Then the Senior Center will open for families to warm up. Hot chocolate, coffee, tea and cookies will be available for purchase. If you would like to join in and help serve, please look for the volunteer sign-up and we will call you. Time frame? “When The Weather Outside Is Frightful”!
