June 2016

 

It is with sadness that I must report one of our long time-cherished members, Terry McKay, has passed away. 

 

At our first meeting this month, we had our normal meet and great.

 

On our next weekly meeting, we traveled across the border to the Outback Restaurant in Tyngsboro, MA.  (Ok, just across from the Pheasant Lane Mall-really not that far!)  We had a section of the restaurant to ourselves that made sharing so much easier and inviting.

 

At our next meeting we had a great brown-bag auction.    There was something for everyone; ranging from candles, to key holders to even toilette paper.  A most enjoyable fun time with lots of laughs for everyone.

 

Our last meeting was the monthly business meeting.  Along with birthday announcements, we had cupcakes and ice cream. 

 

Business meeting highlights:

-         Past meeting minutes were read and accepted.

-         Treasurer’s report was read and accepted.

 

Old Business:

-         We still need to do a membership drive.  A chairperson is needed.

 

New Business:

-         Plans were made to visit the Currier Museum and the Zimmerman House.  Members need to make a commitment no later than 9 June.

-         The “printed” newsletter will not be published for the months of July and August.  But, look for updates via email.

-         There will NOT be any Meals of Wheels during June, July and August.  So, please bring your own lunch when we have meetings at the “Barn.” 

 

Activities for the Month of June:

-         2 Jun:  Seniors picnic

-         9 Jun:  Open meeting and social time

-         16 Jun:  Miniature golf at the Amherst CC and Lunch at Hampshire Hills.

-         23 Jun:  Tour of the Zimmerman House and the Currier Museum.

-         30 Jun:  The Tea Lady from Brookline

 

June birthdays: June Madeira, Noreen Morley, Don Ryder, and Sharon Shay

July birthdays:  Pam Arpin, Janet Defeo, Dorothy Harnish, Susan Laurenson, Basil Mason, Sheryl Ryder, Janice Shedd, and Pat Walsh

August birthdays:  Florence Baker, Jeff Carrier, Clarke Davis, Ken Labaugh, Jacqueline Marden, Mary Mellgard, Jane Nichols, Richard Nichols, Cheryl Piekarski, Mary Ann Swanzey, David Weber and Virginia Wilkins. 

 

If we forgot someone, it is because you didn’t provide your birth month for our database.  Please see Bob Fiero to update your information.

 

General:

1.      We have a business meeting the last Thursday of every month (except Thanksgiving).  Be sure to attend. 

2.      The SVTC bus service has gotten better.  If you have any questions, call Nashua transportation at 880-0100 Ext 1.  And you can visit the SVTC web site at www.SouheganRides.org.  And if you have not registered with the “blue bus”, please do so by calling the above number.

3.      Senior notification.  The Hollis communication center has a procedure in place by which seniors can be registered for Health and Welfare phone calls.  Forms to register for this service are available from the Communications Center.

4.      For members that have Charter Cable service, the Hollis Public Service Channel is Channel 191.  For those with TDS, it is Channel 12. When there is “bad” weather, please check the appropriate channels for school closings and/or delays, which will mean there will be no seniors meeting.

 

Future Senior Activities:

1.      A trip to the Zimmerman House in Manchester along with a trip to the Currier Museum is planned for June. Transportation and lunch is on your own.  The cost is:  $18.00/pp to tour both places or $15.00/pp to tour only the Zimmerman house, or $13.00/pp to tour only the Carrier.  It is planned to eat lunch first (in Manchester area) and take the tour(s). More information will follow.

2.      Our annual picnic will be held in June. 

 

Please let me know your suggestions for future activities you would like to see or do.
