Rain date Tuesday, October 13
October is usually when we start Medicare signups and of course, go to the State Fair. This year we are going to have a drive through event that brings both of these things together. Drive through and get your contacts for what you need to know about this year's Medicare sign up PLUS grab a corn dog. After receiving your information packet and corn dog, you can then visit with experts on your Medicare sign up questions - all in the parking lot of the Senior Center, at a safe distance. Hope to see you there!
Halloween Mask Decorating
Thursday, October 8, 11 a.m. - Mask Pick-up
Friday, October 30, 11 a.m. - Decorated Mask Showing
Since we can't have our annual Halloween party, this year you can come by and grab a paper mask to decorate. Decorate your mask and then come to our drive through event on October 30 to show us your mask and get a spooky treat. If you aren't able to pick up your mask on October 8, just call 972-731-1465 (any week day in October, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.) and Annette will meet you outside with a mask. We can't wait to see what creative ways you can decorate your mask!
Need a chuckle at the end of your week? We have a suggestion. Check out our Senior Facebook page on Friday's for our joke of the week. Have a joke you want to share? Email it to Annette. Videos or written are both accepted. Each week a random joke from staff or members will be featured on the page. Come on and share your silly side with us all!
We would like to create a page to honor our Senior Center members who have served in our military. Please email Annette and let her know the following. If you would prefer to call with the information or drop it by in person, call 972-731-1465 weekdays from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Thank you for your time and service.
- Your name
- What branch(es) of military you served
