Senior Center expanding activities

The Senior Center continues to expand and add additional activities for Fillmore citizens over 55 years of age. The meeting last week reported on an overflowing computer class with a waiting list. The Book club is starting and bingo and puzzles continue. The craft class meets weekly. An art class will soon be started for beginning artists. The time and date will be announced. Anyone who is interested should call the Center and get on the list.
That Board hopes to purchase a used piano to be available for monthly entertainment and activities. A bookcase is needed to start a free circulating library for paperbacks. Additional furniture is needed for the TV corner. A couch and chairs that are firm, set high and have arms would be appreciated. Anyone with suggestions or donations is urged to call the Senior Center.
The Board has scheduled a workshop to discuss the annual budget for 9 a.m. on August 18th with the regular Board Meeting on Aug. 25th. This workshop meeting will be open to the public so everyone in the community understands about the financing for the Center and activities.
The new Board hopes for input from the community to develop the center into a first rate meeting place for seniors. A monthly calendar is available at senior apartments, civic organizations and churches to keep everyone in touch. Personal copies may be picked up at the Senior Center.
The Board needs chairmen to work out details for Social Services, Entertainment, (trips and special events), Activities (more weekly classes), and Health meetings (blood pressure clinic, health fair, Braille and sight help, diabetes support group). Anyone with an interest in these activities should call Board President Loretta Dunehew 524-1969 or Vice-president Marie Wren 524-4044.
With everyone cooperating in Fillmore, the Senior Center expects to better serve the needs of the older citizens in town. Any questions may also be sent to the Center at 524-4533.
