This smoke is sure not good for the head and lungs. I feel for the firefighters out there all day in it. I’m getting bored of hanging out in the house. At least it cooled down for a few days. We do have masks at the  center if you need one, and I am sure there are other places to pick one up. 

The senior of the month is Jenne Schmitz. Congratulations.

Thank you for the paper bags. We can always use them, and it’s good to have a few set away.                                                    

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.
