They can be reached by phone at (509-682-2712.
It is important that members of the Chelan Senior Center attend this Friday's general meeting and pot luck starting at 11:30 a.m.
This is your opportunity to vote for and elect a new slate of Board Members. Positions open for election are Chairman, Vice Chairman and At-Large Position A. Members must have their dues current to vote or to nominate a member from the floor.
This is an important opportunity to select the candidates that will lead you in the year 2013.
Following the elections there will be the monthly pot luck luncheon. Please bring your favorite dish.
A reminder that we are selling the "Family Ties" cookbook for $15. These favorite recipes were gathered by members and friends and make excellent gifts for children, grandchildren, friends and neighbors. The cookbook is available at the Senior Center or by calling 682-2712.
Last Saturday we hosted the Third Annual Holiday Bazaar to a full house of vendors and shoppers. Those attending found a great selection of gift items ranging from dog treats, soaps, antiques, jewelry, Santa ornaments, comforters, candles and a selection of goodies to eat.
How many of you went home with fresh cinnamon rolls? The weather was perfect for shoppers. Amy Torres said volunteers from the Little Stone Church helped with cooking and serving meals.
"I could not have gotten it done this morning without them," she said.
The Senior Center will provide rides to the Little Stone Church Christmas Cantata to be performed on Saturday, December 22 at 2 p.m. Please sign up at the center so rides can be arranged. This cantata is a must for those that want to enjoy the music of the true meaning of Christmas. Call 682-2712 for further information.
Chelan Station Re-Runs
There are not too many Holiday shopping days left in the month and the Re-Runs is packed to the brim with rooms of colorful bargains. Shop in comfort, browse through the many rooms of gently used furniture, lamps, books, knick knacks, holiday decorations and just about anything you can imagine.
Shop on Wednesday and get an additional 10% off the already low prices. There is one room full of furniture such as table and chair sets, dressers, hutches, computer tables to name a few.
Proceeds from sales benefit the Senior Center and help fund its programs.
Re-Runs is easily found on the Chelan Falls Highway just over the railroad tracks and before the Beebe Bridge turnoff. Look for the large signs that say "Second Hand Store."
Hours of business are Wednesday and Thursday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and extended hours on Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Donations are accepted during business hours.
Please do not leave items at any other time. If you have a large quantity of goods to donate or need a pick up for larger items please call Barb or Patty at 682-9808 to make arrangements.
Its not too early to think about making that News Years resolution to start exercising. Classes are held by Linda Hollier on Monday and Wednesday from 1 to 2 p.m. Learn the proper way to warm up and stretch properly to avoid injury.
Find out what exercises are suited for your individual needs. Enjoy the company of others that have a desire to improve their health through a free program sponsored by Lake Chelan Community Hospital and conducted by licensed Physical and Occupational Therapists.
The exercises are designed to improve strength, balance and mobility for the senior community. Each Friday Jim Szymanski leads a group of individuals through a more mobile game of balloon volleyball. Watching this group perform makes on wonder who is getting the most exercise: the students or instructor.
For those that want to exercise by jumping up and down every time they throw a strike then they should come join an energetic group of bowlers on Tuesday afternoon at 3 p.m. It has been a pleasure the last two months to have a group of third and fourth graders from Moe Afters Program to join in and bridge the generation gap. I have observed a fine time enjoyed by all.
The tables continue to be filled at noon Monday through Thursday as word has spread about the delicious meals prepared by Amy Torres and her group of volunteers. Senior Meals is a community effort and would not be possible if it was not for the volunteers in the kitchen, the dining room and those that use their own vehicle that deliver daily meals to those unable to attend the center. If you have a calling for serving, please call Amy at 888-4440 and inquire as to how you may be of service to the community.
Meals for those over 60 are asked to donate $3.25 per meal. If you are unable to donate you are still encouraged to enjoy a hot meal. There are still several free meals available for first-time diners. Just sign up at the door and let us know you are new to the meals program. Those under 60 can still enjoy lunch for only $7.50. Still a bargain in today's market.
Meals are served at North Shore Bible Church in Manson on Friday. Please contact Kathy Miller at 687-3377 to reserve a place.
