The Elders Thanksgiving Dinner was fantastic! We want to Thank the Spokane Tribal Business Council and their spouses for helping serve the Dinner and helping out in the kitchen. Thank You to the Staff from Preservation office who are the first ones to help during our Holiday Dinners. Thank You Pat Austin for the homemade rolls and dumplings they are always a hit. The Senior Staff ~ Chantel Andrews, Alyssa Ford, Elizabeth Butterfly, Wendy Samuels-Peone and Angie Matt for preparing the meal and setting up the dining area. The Elders Advisory Committee for purchasing 8 Thanksgiving Baskets filled with items to prepare a Thanksgiving Feast were won by Frances Shultz, Darla Henke, Cathy Hutchison, Jim Sijohn, David BrownEagle, Donna Abbott, Vicki Rodrigues and Carol Evans. Carol Evans said to redraw for the basket she won and Gloria Allen was drawn. A centerpiece was donated and Charlotte Vivian got to take that home with her. The Head Start kids are so generous when making centerpieces for the tables at our Dinners. A lot of the centerpieces can be found in the windows of Elders homes.
Nora Flett and Ed Hughes will be at the Senior Center every Tuesday and Wednesday at 11 am- 12 pm. to do Elder friendly exercises. We have a small group who that is growing and there always room for more. The Stay Active and Independent for Life (S.A.I.L) exercise classes are great. There is support and a lot of laughter during this time. You are encouraged to attend and be active with peers.
Still trying to find interested individuals!!! There is an Elder who would like to get an interested group of Elders together to start having jam sessions (music) & card games at the Senior Center. If you are interested please let us know so we can get some jam sessions and card games going. Come to the Senior Center and have a cup of coffee and visit and catch up with friends and share some stories with one another.
Staff from St. Luke's Rehabilitation Center will be at the Senior Center to talk to Elders about Senior Safety in the home and Elder Friendly exercises - 1pm - 3pm, please call the Senior Center if you have any questions. Every month we will be having similar meetings, at this time we do not have a schedule but are working to get the dates and times confirmed so that we can share them with you. Please call the Senior Center if you have questions or Nora Flett at 258-7502.
Meals are served at 12pm Tuesday thru Friday at the Senior Center unless otherwise noted. The delivery drivers leave the Senior Center between 9:30am - 10:30am. If you are not going to be home please call the Senior Center before 9am to have your meal canceled for the day.
Thank You to everyone who does call in and/or tells the delivery driver in advance when you will not be home for your meal. This really does help with the morning prep work. Thank You again!
