I found out that people really do read this article each week. I had two people ask me what happened to “Seniors on Sixth.” My excuse is that I was on vacation for a week and then was just too busy, or maybe it was lazy, to get it written last week.


I will catch you up on things that have happened since I last wrote.


Eighteen ladies went on a day trip to Iowa Falls on July 12. We shopped some of the great stores on their main street; visited their remodeled theater, which is the oldest building on main street; ate a great lunch at the Princess Café; took a one-and-half-hour boat ride on the Iowa River and stopped in to see the converted Carnegie Library building before heading back home. (It is now a beautiful place for the Chamber office with a small museum in the lower level). A big thank-you to Heather Pedersen, the driver, and Rolling Green Village for letting us use their bus to help with transportation.


While I was gone, the waffle committee served a delicious breakfast on July 16 and all other activities went on as usual — Yoga classes, women’s coffee times and Hand and Foot cards.


We will have congregate meals at the Center through Aug. 10 and will then have a little break until school starts later in August.


Stay tuned next week for details about our potluck day on Aug. 13.
