Senior CenterBy Rosalie Hutson

It’s time: The Christmas Room will be open this Saturday (Nov. 23) at 9 a.m. It’s one-stop shopping with gifts for the whole family, and paper and gift bags to wrap them in.

We have trees, stands, decorations, games, stuffed animals, fancy clothes and Christmas sweaters and sweatshirts. There’s also a white elephant gift corner, for the odd party gifts.

Be sure to have your grandkids put their name in for the door prize.

We helped Howard Betty celebrate his birthday Friday. He didn’t really say how old he was – he mumbled something about being 44-plus. Congratulations, Howard.

Our get-well wishes go out to Judith Wall. We miss you – heal up soon so you can come back and join us.

The door prize gift basket will be awarded Monday (Nov. 25). You must be present to win.

Stay warm and healthy – the cold and flu season is here.
