A Message From Your Manager

September / October 2019

Well, our Center is up and running once again, and the place is really jumping! The new paint scheme in the lobby looks is dressy and professional, all offices and activity rooms have been renovated, the carpet in the hallways and lobby has been replaced, and all classes and activities are running once again. If you haven’t been in since the burst pipe, I hope you’ll stop in and check out the new look.


We are scheduling new programs, presentations, and special events. Look for information in the bi-monthly Newsletter and the flyers and posters in the Center. Keep informed on what’s going on and join us when you see something interesting or try out the new classes or activities.


On August 27 we held a Memorial Celebration for our dear friend, Buster Guth. About 130 members, family, and friends enjoyed a delicious lunch and wonderful music, and the chance to meet new friends. We even had a few take advantage of the invitation to dance! I think Buster would have enjoyed himself. We still miss him, but will always remember the time and   effort he put in to make the Center what it is today. Thank You, Buster!


I encourage everyone to become a more active part of the Center. We need your suggestions for new classes, programs, and trips.


The Thrift Shop will reopen on a normal weekly schedule, with a half-price day on September 3, from 9 to 1, so come over and check out all the newly added treasures.


I look forward to an active and productive Fall at the Center, and wish you all a happy Labor Day weekend. I you think this year or summer went fast, just wait as we gear-up for the impending holiday season!

A Message From Your Assistant Manager

 September / October 2019


Hope everyone had a wonderful summer! We are so fortunate to have a beautiful patio where we can just sit and enjoy nature and our friends. If you haven’t had a chance to sit out on the patio, I suggest you do. There is almost always a wonderful breeze, and it is just a nice place to sit back and relax.


Grand View Hospital will be at our Center on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 for our quarterly Nutrition program, Healthy Holiday Entertaining. They will be in the dining room during lunch to present their program. If you would like to eat that day you must sign up in Copilot the Wednesday before by 11:30. We eat lunch at 11:30. If you do not know how to order your lunch in Copilot, you can ask me and I will show you or someone at the front desk will help you.


I would like to encourage people to come play Bingo the first and fourth Wednesday of each month. Joe Marcavage is our Bingo Caller. Joe will keep you in stitches all during the games. He’s a real comedian but most of all he loves calling Bingo and he loves all his players.


I would like to once again thank all our Volunteers. We couldn’t run this Center without you. I am also a Volunteer at other organizations and I truly know the dedication and commitment it takes to be a Volunteer. You guys are the best!
