Notes Enjoying a nice lazy Sunday, watching the snowflakes fall and the birds in the feeders. It feels nice to have the Christmas Sale behind me, so I can relax. The sale was great — thanks to all who shopped with us. It is about time to give the money to the students who we pledged money...

Notes This month is going so fast — only four more days left of the Christmas Sale. So just about everything is $3 a bag now. Monday (Dec. 21) is our last day for meals at the center before Christmas, and on that day we will have Santa, goodie bags and a gift exchange. If you...

 Notes That was a good old-fashioned snowstorm on Saturday. It didn’t seem to slow down too many shoppers for the sales. The Christmas room is getting well picked-over but there are still plenty of items to look over — lots of toys, gifts and decorations. We will be having our senior Christmas party on Dec. 21, which will...

Notes We still have lots of sheets, towels, bathmats and pillows, and other whites. If you missed out on the first run there are still plenty to choose from. The Christmas Sale is going great with new things coming in every day, and there will be lots of great items out for the next big sale...

Notes The Christmas sale got off to a great start on Saturday. We were busy from the time the door opened until it closed. New things will be put out as soon as there is for room on the shelves for them, and there is another big sale on Dec. 5. We have an overabundance of sheets,...

Notes Please, if you have donations for us, bring them when we are open if you can. Our midnight shoppers are at it again, and they steal anything of value. So try not to enable their habits and addictions by leaving things while we are closed. The Veterans Day meal went well even though the...

Notes I just received word that another of our long-time members has passed away. Donna Lasater  passed away on Saturday morning (Nov. 7). She was our board secretary for many years and took all the notes in shorthand. We all missed her when she wasn’t well enough to come to the center. Our condolences to...

Notes I’ve been gone for a week so am not sure what has happened around the center. But I know we had a great trip to Montana, seeing grandkids and great-grandkids and touring Yellowstone Park, and thinking we got home over those passes in the nick of time. Old man winter is not far away,...

Methow Valley Senior Center Notes We have been busy planning the Veterans Day Lunch. It was originally planned for Wednesday, Nov. 11. Then, due to the planned PUD power outage on that day, we were scrambling to get everything rescheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 10. All changes have been made and are in place for the...

Notes Well, if nothing else we have proven to be entertaining. So we were told by a lady from Canada. Four of us were trying to put a Halloween costume on the mannequin, which is not an easy task – you have to take her arms off, stuff them in the sleeves, and then try...
