Full slate of trips planned for 2011

It may have been the invite for a coffee party to meet friends who, too, are feeling housebound, or maybe they came to check out what plans we have scheduled for this year. Whatever the reason, it was great seeing you all.

Names were drawn for prizes and should come to the center to claim your prize.

Winners were: Leon Jacobson, Shirley Lewison, Mary King, Louise Anderson, and Donna Oehlers. Susan Davis was drawn for the questionnaire on future travel.

The yearly calendar is now available along with a listing of travel for 2011. These may be picked up in the message box on the south side of our building (outside). Just a reminder that all trips are open to the public, and discounts and a monthly newsletter go to our members for joining our beautiful center. (I know you're all not old enough, but we have the youngest seniors around.) Thanks to all of you for coming. And thanks also to all of you who helped work on this yearly event. What a fun event.
