Daily hot lunches for those 60 years and over began again April 14, 2021. Due to the pandemic, it is brought out to your car in a To Go bag. Lunch MUST be requested by noon the day before in order to be on the list to get one when you drive through. Call the Center to reserve a lunch. Lunches may be reserved for multiple days. For those who can afford it, a donation of $2.50 per lunch is appreciated and allows the program to stay sufficiently funded along with local, state, and federal support. Make checks out to Valley Services.
Once we are again fully open, we offer help to anyone learning how to use the PC/computer, Ipad/tablet, or cell phone. We can help with hardware connections as well as software like Office and Apps like Facetime or Facebook. We will have scheduled walk-in times or you can call to make an appointment. Learn how to get more out of your devices. Happy to help!
One of our most attended activities! When pandemic rules allow, BINGO will be scheduled again three times a week. Cards were a nickel each and all proceeds were given away as prizes. More specifics when we start up again!
We have monthly Euchre and Pinochle Tournaments. Before the pandemic, Euchre was the last Tuesday and pinochle the fourth Thursday of the month, both at 12:30 p.m. We had weekly mahjong games. And we had an annual Card Party, which was a great fundraiser for the Center. Stay tuned!
Tai Chi was scheduled Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10am and was even held outside before winter set in. Stay tuned for that to restart!
Line dancing was held every Wednesday at 9:30 am to 11:30 am. Beginners are always welcome, and the more experienced are happy to help new dancers. The session, however, is more intermediate dancing than a class for beginners. New dances are taught most sessions. Do come and try it out; it is good exercise, very social as we always have a good break, and it is good brain work!
Each month, dinners from various cultures were featured. We have featured Hungarian, Polish, Italian, Mexican, American, Irish, and more.
At various times of the year, events are held, such as Caroling in the Park, Easter Egg Hunt, Halloween Trunk or Treat, Spring Chalk Art Walk, New Years Eve Frog Drop. Announcements are posted for these events so check back regularly!
Various organizations hold meetings or events in our Center and all are welcome to attend, for example, a monthly AARP, a youth group, a Red Cross Blood Drive, a Meet the Candidates evening, and others. Check this site for dates and times!
We have had Pie and Cake contests, participate in the Mustard Seed walk, sponsor a fall craft show, and help with the annual Point Place parade. We had an annual Card Party where people rent tables of 4 and can play any legal game with their party. There were drawings, food, and donations from businesses to fill the prize baskets. We usually ran out of tables!
Two shuffleboard courts are painted on the floor of the main meeting room. Stay tuned for dates and times for shuffleboard play.
We have a wall in our hallway full of books to share. Just take what you would like to read and bring any good books to donate when you have some. There are also board games and jigsaw puzzles to borrow and return when convenient.
