Senior Center News

Did you get a chance to attend CBC this year? The senior center has been hosting a bake sale for CBC years. We all know this would not be possible if it weren’t for the fabulous bakers who share their talent. Our profits this year were $560.90.

As you know, we use all volunteers to work and 100 percent of the profits go to CBC. I sincerely wish to thank Jean Anthony, Jean Louis, Laura Lee Tegtman and Savannah Rose Neadow for working with me.

Those who donated goodies included: Don’a Nelson, Linda Lowman, Jean McCormick, John and Mary Lou Arnold, Denise Warren, Doris Nelson, Rosie and Ray Krall, Helen Barton, Marlene Peterson, Marian Parker, Linda Hamill, Betty Lasich, Edith Greene, Janice Jackson, Victoria George, Guerda Frenette, Jean Louis, Vi and Rose Sundling, Cathy Wise, Laura Lee Tegtman, Ed and Deb Lancour, Vera Cones, Bruce and Rita Rossier, Kristen Anderson, Pat Bosanic and Kim Chartier.

Monetary donations were received from Carol Leny, Clara Goudreau, Laura Lee Tegtman, Rosalie Miller and Betty Harding.

As I got ready to go on stage to present the total, I asked my granddaughter if she would like to sit at the table behind the stage until I did the presentation. Her comment was, “Oh no, grandma. If I go on stage with you I will become famous!” She definitely got a few chuckles for that one.

Request for next year was to have more wheat bread and chocolate fudge, as we hadn’t received any, along with marking what it is that you baked. Once again, thank you to all of our bakers, donators and those who took the time to purchase goodies. Hopefully we will see you all next year.

This past Thursday was our Pancake Supper. Chris Orr and Wade Johnson volunteered their time, allowing everyone to enjoy listening to them play guitars and singing prior to filling their tummies. Great job!

A great big “thank you” goes out to: Mary Burns, Dan and Cliff Barber, Larry Peterson, Joe Jasmin, Carol Stevens, Deb Blandford, Kristin Anderson, Lucille Boyd and Community Corrections. I couldn’t have done it without you! I want to thank Vera Cones for setting up the tables.

Vases/flowers were donated by Shirley Gardapee. We are still looking for vases for the tables. If you have any to donate, feel free to drop by the office.

Miscellaneous donations were given by Patty Fox and Edith Greene. A Crafts and Treasure and Trash donation was received from Marilyn Halling. Bob Ellis dropped by with a Medical Loan Closet donation.

Ray and Fritz Nelson have returned home. They dropped by with gift give-aways for our upcoming events. Donations for event prizes and can be dropped off Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

We just found out the Munising Vanguard Singers will be presenting a “Spring Sing in Munising” on Saturday, May 3, at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church with special barbershop music by: the Grace Notes of the Remnants Barbershop Chorus from Escanaba in celebration of music with The Munising Vanguard Singers.

With this we would like to fill a bus to make it a fun-filled evening. The cost is $15, including transportation and a show ticket. We will leave the senior center parking lot at 4:30 p.m. allowing time to stop for dinner (not included). If interested, pay as soon as possible, allowing time to make arrangements. Why not call a few friends to join us on our evening out!
