TECH TALKS Later this spring we’ll be reprising several of our TECH TALKS that were so successful a couple of years ago. We hope to offer speakers and some 1:1 tutoring times for folks needing help with their smart phones, I-Pads, lap-tops, Kindles/Nooks, etc. Topics may include: General use of device; Facebook/Twitter; E-mailing, use of the Cloud, Pinterest, Skype/Face Time; etc. If you know of a tech geek who would volunteer to speak/teach, call us!
Have you been to lunch at the Senior Center lately?
We’re doing our own cooking and the meals are pretty tasty! Everything from meat loaf to chicken and noodles to Chinese pepper steak and lots more! Suggested donation is $2-3, but if you can’t afford that, put in whatever you can afford. Menus are posted a week ahead. Call in a reservation at least 24 hrs in advance (preferably more). Come join the fellowship!
Wii BOWLING FUNDRAISER
Hey, all you bowlers! The Senior Center is having its first-ever Public Wii Bowling event on Sunday, April 12, 2015 at BUFFALO WILD WINGS! The folks at BW2 are letting us use their big screens, and we’re looking for teams of two (and as many as 32 teams!) to participate. Entrance fee is $10/person. You can pay this yourself or solicit pledges (which we encourage– at so much a pin) to help raise money for the Senior Center. In fact, there will be a $30 gift card to Texas Roadhouse for the person raising the most money through pledges for the Bowlathon. Pre-register your team by visiting the Sr. Center or send in your registration and fees. See button Below (Registration Form Button). You’ll be assigned an initial match time (between 1:00-3:30 depending on the number of teams). If your team wins your foursome, you’ll bowl again during the Championship round. High score total wins. Prizes will be awarded. BW2 is also giving us 15% of all money spent on food & drink during the tourney, so bring friends to cheer you on! Come on! Register!
5:00pm April 27th
$7.00 includes a light supper, an evening of playing cards and door prizes
DAN’S FISH FRY
We’ll be hosting another Dan’s Fish/Loin Fry on Sat., May 16. Please mark your calendar so that you can help! We’ll need lots of people to give just 1 (or more, if you like) hour to work a 1-hour shift. Lots of different jobs are available. AND, of course, we hope you’ll by a ticket (and bring friends) to eat!
Upcoming books for Book Club are:
April "A Girl Named Zippy" by Haven Kimmel May "Born Again" by Charles Colson June "Ghost Boy" by Martin Pistorius
(Bad weather or unforeseen circumstances could cause an adjustment in the months and their books.)
We borrow the books through Marion Public Library’s Interlibrary Loan (with the great help of Shirley Mooney). You have a month to read the book and then return to the library. We have some great discussions and read some great books.
It is OK to sit in on a discussion even if you haven't read the book.
