I don’t have much news this week but I do want to remind you that next Monday is our usual potluck day. I will be out of town, but you will be in good hands with Judy Craven, who will introduce our speaker and fill you in on several announcements. Thanks also to several people who volunteered to be hosts in the kitchen this month. We could not pull this off each month without someone taking that responsibility.

Jennifer Garst , Promotional Director of the Story County Community Foundation, will be our speaker this month. You may have noticed the article in last week’s Journal about the large amount of grant money to be given again this year by the SCCF. Their allocations committee gives special consideration to nonprofit organizations who do community betterment projects. The Nevada Senior Center fell into that category when we received a grant from them in 2010 to help pay for our sound system. She will likely tell you about many other projects which their committee supports each year.

The only other reminder I have is about Carroll Kotouc’s birthday party at the Center on Sept. 12th from 5-7.
