Seniors On Sixth

Dee Monson

I have several things to make you aware of this week. First, I want to tell you about our potluck program for next Monday, the 14th. We were privileged to have ISU Professor Charles Achter speak to our group in June about his experiences in Egypt. At that time I mentioned that he would be returning in November to share his program, “The Common Man and WWII.” Charles was able to return to Belgium and retrace his father’s path in the Battle of the Bulge and also walk on Normandy Beach. He will share what it was like through his father’s experiences and what he saw 70 years later. I hope you can attend to share in this WWII tribute.

The second announcement I have is that our building will be closed for senior activities, after 10 a.m., on Thursday, and Friday, Nov. 17 and 18. The City has asked to use our building for noon lunch receptions and activities involved with the hiring of the new city administrator. Their e-mail mentioned a public reception on Thursday afternoon, so you might watch the Journal for further information about that.

That last thing I want to bring to your attention involves food. Windsor Manor Assisted Living is inviting all seniors to a free noon lunch on Thursday, Nov. 17 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. This event will be held at the Catholic Church.

And last, but not least, you have probably all received your invitation to the city’s Thanksgiving meal, at Gates Hall on the 22nd at 11:30 a.m. The charge for that meal is $7. I think we seniors are being spoiled with all these kind invitations.
