Welcome to March and the official arrival of spring on the 20th.  I am sure we are all looking forward to warmer weather and longer days.

One of our members shared a photo of her crocuses blooming in her yard already.  My thoughts this time of year focus on what I want my garden to look like this year.  While some of my flowers come up yearly, gardens always need work to look their best.  At the Center, we are fortunate to have a lovely patio and garden area to enjoy when weather permits. While my garden needs some work, our garden needs a major fixup.  Unfortunately, it has been neglected during the time we were closed.  I am looking for interested members to volunteer their time and gardening skills to improve and renovate our planters around the patio. Anyone want to get some dirt under their fingernails?  Someone want to head up a new gardening committee.

Our biggest event is Big Bingo on March 19th. It is an important fundraiser for the Center. If you are attending, thanks. Bring your friends.  Members have already volunteered to help but we can always use more volunteers.

Many activities and special presentations are coming up in March and our newsletter is full of information. See what is coming up and plan to attend.

Hope to see you at the Center, enjoying each other and our many activities.

Sharon Brzoska, President

It is time to renew your membership for 2023. We encourage you to renew and invite a friend who might be interested in joining.  A 2023 membership form is available on our website under "Forms" or at the Center.  Membership cost is still only $20.00.    We have a lot to offer in the way of activities, special events and programs. 


When the weather is bad please call the senior center after 7:30 AM and listen to the voice mail message  before venturing out.  The voice mail message will indicate if we are closed.   The best way to find out if the senior center is closed is to call first (610-265-4715).
