Fillmore Senior Center News

Blood Pressure Check
The next blood pressure and blood sugar checks will be available on Wednesday June 2nd at the Senior Center from 9-11. This free service is provided by the Catholic Charities of the Ventura Region. It is important that all seniors check these items between doctors’ visits in order to stay healthy. Watch Channel 10 for the regular dates.

Volunteers operate the hostess desk at the Senior Center each day. By signing in at the desk, seniors help the Center record participation. The desk host also answers the phone and keeps track of those wanting to attend classes and making field trips reservations. Anyone who is interested in working at the desk once a week, or once a month, please call Allan Hair who schedules times. 524-4533

Poppy Field Trip
The van trip to the Lancaster Poppy Preserve was a success last week with more people wanting to go than the van would hold. The next field trip will probably be to the Santa Barbara Zoo, so watch the paper for dates. If you have a special idea for a field trip, call the desk and put it on the list for the future.

To keep up with activities at the Center, read the Fillmore Gazette each week and then join us at the Center for lunch, activities for entertainment or education---we do it all.

Braille Mobile
The Braille mobile unit will be back in July. We are depending upon the community to help us find those with sight problems that will visit the unit for suggestions for making their life better. The Braille Institute is arranging for a tape recorder and tapes to be in the library at the Center. Anyone with a sight problem is welcome to come and try the “talking books.” If you are interested in securing a set up for yourself to use at home, the paper work will be at the library and we will help you complete the form.
