Here we are in August and on the down side of summer. It just doesn’t seem like summer is going to be over in around a month. But the girls who are working on the Winter Sale are getting prepared so you can have warm clothes this winter.

There will be no dance in August. There will be one in September, none in October and one in November.

If you need to call the bus for a ride, you need to call the new number as we can not take these calls at the center anymore: 1-800-635‑4391.

Please remember that we cannot sell items like kids’ car seats, walkers, used bike helmets, TVs or and printers as we can’t prove they work and we end up throwing them in the garbage.

Also remember that if you are stealing things off the front or back door areas you are on camera and will end up on our senior center Facebook page.

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

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.
