We now have a nice smooth parking lot and even have parking stripes. It looks great right now, but will be covered in snow in a month or so, I think. It’s feeling more like snow every day.

The Winter Sale moved out of the sale room on Saturday and the Halloween Sale moved in on Sunday. Then, the first of November the Christmas Sale will move in. We have been getting so many donations that we haven’t seen the back of the sorting area in months. Keeps us busy and out of trouble.

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.
