Blue Ridge Senior Center Update
USDA Offers Utility Loans


Blue Ridge Senior Center Update

It was a slow start to 2005 – frigid weather and lots of snow. We were closed on several occasions due to the stormy weather, and we had to cancel some of our planned events.

We did start our annual dart tournament. The schedule is all made out and people have started throwing. Good luck.

We were able to have our soup and sandwich day. Nettie Swingle and Alice Hall took charge of the sandwiches and they served several delicious varieties. The homemade soup, bean and vegetable-beef was prepared by Lena Ricker and Audrey LaHoda. It was great. Thanks to all who helped. There was a good turnout and all enjoyed the day.

A long list of birthdays; those celebrating in January are Sarah Flynn, Mary White, Ruth Kowslewski, Ruth Clift, Roberta Bailey, Neil Wescott, Sharon Potter and Gene Parmgardhen. Hope you all had a wonderful day.

A large group were out for the flu shots. Although it was later than other years, people were grateful to receive them.

Free tax assistance will once again be given. The sessions will held every Friday during March. But, you must call ahead and be put on the schedule. Call the Blue Ridge Senior Center at (570) 879–2896. This way you can mark your calendar as to the time and our experts will be waiting.

As I mentioned it was very slow this month, but cards and dominoes were played. Council meeting held. Exercise and blood pressures taken. Hopefully the weather will improve and we will be able to get out more.

‘Til next time, take care.
