Well, the first day of spring wasn’t as nice and sunny as I wanted, but we take what we get. Saturday was Celia’s 95th birthday, which was celebrated at the Senior Center with friends and family. Congratulations!

Items in the Spring Sale room are going to be half off this week, so come in for bargains. Some of the clothes still have price tags on them.

Plans are in the works for the over-80 party, which will be in late May. More on that later.

The rummage room has been super-busy this spring. Now we are closing out the winter wear so we can bring in the summer clothes and then start setting up the Western Sale.

The Thrift Store is open Monday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

The Senior Center is located next to the Methow Valley Community Center on Highway 20 in Twisp. Lunch is served at noon by the Okanogan County Transportation and Nutrition Program on Monday, Thursday and Friday. The suggested donation for lunch is $3.50 for seniors over age 60; the cost is $8 for those under 60. Annual membership dues are $1.25.

Transportation is available locally for the senior lunch program, and for monthly trips to Omak/Okanogan the second Tuesday of the month and to Wenatchee the third Tuesday of the month. Call the Senior Center at 997-7722 for additional details.
