News & Updates from the Spokane Tribe Senior Center

"As the old year retires and a new one is born, we commit into the hands of our Creator the happenings of the past year and ask for direction and guidance in the new one. May He grant us His grace, His tranquility and His wisdom!" - Peggy Toney Horton

The 21st Annual Elders Luncheon is approaching quickly. It is on the calendar for Thursday May 4, 2017 @ the Wellpinit High School Gymnasium. We are always looking for volunteers for this event. If you can help we would sure appreciate it.

We have seen the notices in the Rawhide about the SCAMS that are going around via phone, e-mail, snail mail, etc... Please remember that if its too good to be true its most likely a SCAM. Do your research before giving anyone your personal information or money!

The Senior Program has been short staffed since the end of December. Thank You for being patient with us. We hope to be back to full staff by February 2017.

If the person delivering your meals does ot feel comfortable driving through your driveway because of the snow you will be notified and those contracted to plow driveways will be notified. One driver got stuck in 2 different driveways. We are Thankful that there were shovels and someone there to help push her out.

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!

Are you interested in becoming involved with the Elders in our community? If so, please stop by the Senior Center and inquire about becoming a part of the Elder Advisory Committee. This committee meets once a month every 2nd Tuesday 10am @ the Senior Center. Unless noted otherwise.

Tuesdays are scheduled craft days but feel free to come to the Senior Center daily to work on crafts. A lot of material has been donated and there are sewing machines available to use.
