Well, it doesn’t look much like spring today. But I read somewhere there are only 40 more days to spring, and as fast as the months have been going it will be here before we know it. Kazia and her crew are busy hanging some nice summer clothes and adding a few things for Easter. Easter is early on April 1, so the sale is going to start March 17.

There has been some excitement around the center, and some are out with this flu. It’s bad stuff. We have sanitizer all over, so feel free to use it. We don’t want to spread the bug or have anyone get it.

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 $4 for seniors over age 60; the cost is $8.50 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.
