The Halloween Sale started last Saturday, but if you missed it there is still a room full of costumes and decorating items.

How about that snowstorm? A little early to suit me. I still have yard work that needs done.

Friday is gift basket day. Come in and have lunch, and try your luck at getting your name drawn.

The Methow Valley Senior center will be sponsoring a free lunch in honor of all veterans on Nov. 11 at the community center in Twisp. The program starts at 11 a.m. If you are a veteran, please bring a guest and join us for a celebration in your honor.

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 1-800-635-4391 for additional details.
