Young at Heart

By JoAn Newby

The Blaine Senior Center had a great October complete with the trimmings befitting the giddy month of brightly colored foliage with its mizzles and drizzles and equally friendly gusts of wind. We saw Halloween coming and aptly celebrated with seasonal treats and colorful, creative costumes.

So here comes November. Stretch exercises classes on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, Bible studies Tuesday and Friday mornings, bridge and painting class on Tuesday afternoons. China painting and writing class appears Wednesday mornings, and Pinochle, Scrabble, etc. is in the afternoon. Our kitchen is receiving a new coat of paint, box lunches will be served on the 5th and 6th with a surprise lunch being served on Friday. The center will be open Saturday morning for pool games and strength training.

Our pancake breakfast will be on the 15th. The waffles have been a hit, and the rumor is that biscuits and gravy may be served – maybe.

Thanksgiving dinner with roasted turkey will be served on the 20th. The American Legion Post #86 will serve a scrumptious community dinner on Thanksgiving Day – try to be here.

Still another future big happening is the “Second Annual Homemade Arts & Crafts Christmas Bazaar.” The big days will be Friday and Saturday, December 5 and 6. This event gives home crafters an excellent opportunity to display and sell some of their beautiful home crafted work. This is a strictly homemade craft show all items must be home crafted, nothing commercial can be allowed. Tables for the show can be rented for $25 with a special price of $20 for senior center members. Come on in, home crafters and learn more about it. Pick up an application at the senior center office. We hope you can join us and have some fun while making some pocket money.

We will be having a “Walk Down Cookie Lane” on Saturday, December 6. This is a path leading to tables laden with a variety of delicious homemade cookies. Customers will fill a box with cookies of their choice, and pay by the pound. Questions can be referred to Sharon Neem, 332-7562.
