Now here is April again. Even though April has a moody reputation, it also should bring more of those sunny days and the sensation that we are indeed gliding toward pleasant green meadows, bright flowing streams with banks of brilliant blooms. Soon there will be gardening and bocce ball on the fresh green lawns. March displayed its tame and wild side. April though at times fretful and turbulent should somewhere relent and continue bringing us on toward those pleasant Northwest summers.
The Blaine senior activity center always had an abundance of regularly scheduled activities, stretch exercises, weight lifting, china painting, oil and acrylic painting, table games, card games, pool. The writing class meets Wednesday mornings and provides a wonderful way for life stories to be written. Everyone has a story to tell, and it is there to help do just that. Writing is a valuable way to express one's thoughts and share with them with others. You will find encouragement and fellowship in this group, give it a go.
There is such an abundance of interesting activities for April. Would you like help with your tax return? Assistance is available, call or come to the center to schedule this free service and pick up your packet of preparation information.
