Young at Heart
By JoAn Newby
Welcome to December and the wintery month of festive celebration.
Now in this most wonderful time of the year, our hope for each one – an abundance of cheer, if any are lacking just come over here, the Blaine Senior Center has plenty to spare.
Yes, the Christmas season has finally come with all the beautiful decorations filling the room, and a great Christmas tree all beautifully trimmed, with Christmas music playing and goodies consumed.
What a pleasure it was trimming that tree with 60 elementary students singing with glee. December is busy as December should be.
Mondays have the easy line dancing for newcomers at 9 a.m. and the easy line dancing class at 10 a.m. Tuesdays will have pool, the stretch exercise class and computer class at 10 a.m. An interesting study on prayer and dream interpretation will be meeting at 10:30 a.m. Our sing-along group meets and sings at 1 p.m.
The painting class with its great beginners program will return in January. Wouldn’t it be nice to start a new or renew an old hobby? Come and begin the New Year right. Remember Toni’s open house at the Blaine Senior Center on Tuesday, January 1, 2008.
Bring food and games and most especially yourself and have a good time of fun, food and fellowship.
Wednesday is a day for china paintings, computer class, bocce or beanbag baseball, table games, and card games. Come learn a new skill, your friends will be so envious. The creative writing class has been growing, growing, growing, with very interesting stories for everybody to hear. This is a great time to write those stories of your own. Your family and friends will appreciate them.
Thursdays is the day for stretch exercises, computer classes, perhaps bocce ball or bean bag baseball, a blood pressure check by the friendly fire department, table games, bridge, and at 6 p.m., pinochle.
Fridays have another Bible study, at 10 a.m. Our theater group meets Fridays at 1 p.m. and a new skit is in the wings.
The pancake breakfast will be Saturday, December 15 and begins at 8 a.m. and ends at noon. Come to eat pancakes or french toast and other good things, or perhaps volunteer at the Blaine Senior Center.
The Christmas dinner and December birthday party will be Thursday, December 20.
The Blaine Senior Center will be closed December 24 and 25, however the Unitarian Church will be providing the community with a great Christmas day feast on a donation basis. You can bring your whole family and have a merry time.
Have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year !
