Young At Heart
Welcome February, it means another month of fabulous fun, fellowship and food at the Blaine senior center. Welcome, everybody, join the crowd, here is a really great place to explore new ideas, encounter lively discussions, exercise with the weight-training equipment, borrow books, videos, and puzzles and devour delicious hot cooked meals within a circle of both new and old friends.
February has a full month of activities, but remember that the center will be closed February 7 for floor cleaning and also Monday, February 16, Presidents Day.
A very nice thing about February is Valentine’s Day and the center will be celebrating that special day on Thursday, February 12. The special Valentine lunch will be at noon, with the very special entertainment of the Bellingham Norwegian Male Choir.
Here is your opportunity to have your photo taken alone or with a friend or spouse, or maybe even your favorite pet. Have it your way.
Just a reminder – the 2009 annual membership fees are due. The center offers members who are 50 or older so many activities for such a low membership fee.
