Methow Valley Senior Center

The Christmas Sale room is filling up fast. It will be ready for the first big sale on Nov. 17. There are lots of new things and anything else you can think of. If you need a tree early, stop by — we have an abundance of them.

On Sunday (Nov. 11), the Senior Center is sponsoring a free dinner and program for all veterans and a guest, starting at 4 p.m.

The way the wind has been blowing, I was hoping it would blow all our leaves away. Well, it did, but now we have the neighbors’ leaves — can’t win for losing.

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.
