Senior Chatter: Exciting Times at the Senior Center

Lionda Spragg

The end of October saw the Senior Center literally jumping with fun and games. It was decorated for fall and Halloween. On the 27th we held a fall festival. At 11 a.m. the games began. We played miniature (tiny) golf, musical cookie walk, ring toss and corn toss, cornhole and also Plinko. Lots of prizes were won.
Kim ran a photo shoot with us sitting in the big rocking chair. You can see the pictures on the big screen in the dining room.
Door prizes were provided by Western Sugar, Queen Bee and the Senior Center. Lovell-Kane Museum showcased pictures of sugar beets, harvest and campaign on the tables. Linda Schwope won the quilt raffle. We all had a good time and good lunch also.
Then on Halloween the Red Hats, witches and spooks came out to lunch. It was our usual chili and cinnamon roll Halloween menu. The cooks did a wonderful job, and then they judged the costumes. Lots of candy appeared for our own trick or treats.
Now we are gearing up for Veterans Day on Friday, Nov. 10. The American Legion will officiate, and all veterans will be acknowledged and their lunch will be compliments of Bank of Lovell. Quilts of honor will be presented, and our favorite singers will be present from Lovell Elementary.
Next – Thanksgiving. The Center will serve the traditional dinner on Thursday, Nov. 23, $3 donation for seniors and $5 for non-seniors. You must sign up ahead of time for this event so we don’t run out of pie. The Center will be closed on Friday, Nov. 24.
The Center is thriving – quilts are being turned out and conversation and friendships are the order of every day. Come join us. It’s fun!
