Senior Center News

Let’s do it! The center is trying to quickly fill a bus to head to the “Spring into Harmony ’14” being held in Gladstone on Saturday, May 10. Why not join us for a fun-filled bus trip to enjoy entertainment by The Munising VanGuards Chorus, Remnants Barbershop Chorus, Next Generation Quartet and Gracenotes.

Cost is $17, which includes transportation and a ticket to the show. The bus will be departing from the senior center parking lot at 4:30 p.m., allowing us time to stop for dinner (on your own). Please contact the center as soon as possible allowing us time to make final arrangements. Why not invite a few friends?

We have three rooms available for our upcoming Kewadin Sault/ St.Ignace/Hessel Bus Trip. If you are interested, please contact the senior center as soon as possible. The cost is $80 double occupancy which includes: transportation with Kewadin, accommodations at Sault casino, small breakfast, dinner buffet, $50 in coins, $10 added to your playing card and a $10 deli voucher.

The added bonus on Wednesday is if you register as a player before playing and put 50 points on your card, you will receive a $15 gas card, along with getting double points all day. Senior Day at all casino sites is on Thursday.

The bus holds 56 passengers on a first pay basis, which is non-refundable. The senior center is not responsible for any changes made by Kewadin.

The Creative Writing Group met on Wednesday afternoon this week at the center. If you are interested in writing short stories, drop by and check this group out. Betty LaPointe is the instructor, and we sincerely thank Betty for giving of her time. The May meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 30.

Our next Monthly Potluck is scheduled for Thursday, May 15. Entertainment begins at 4 p.m. and dinner will be served at approximately 5 p.m. We are asking for your help on entertainment ideas. If you know of anyone who would volunteer their time to entertain, please give the center a call at 341-5923.

There is still a definite “chill in the air” so why not stop by the gift shop at the center and check out all the beautiful handmade hats, mittens and scarves in every color you can imagine. We also have a large selection of handmade baby quilts and afghans, baby sweaters, bibs and dresses, knitted slippers, kitchen towels and potholders, cross stitched lighthouse pictures and bookmarks. We also have a display of handmade purses, book bags, dolly diaper bags and other wonderful gifts that would be perfect for any occasion. The gift shop is open during normal working hours.
