March 2017

 

Well, February was a “snowy month” to say the least.  We were snowed out for 2 of our meetings. 

 

First we had our normal “meet and greet” along with a pizza party.  So the first week was great.  Then, our next 2 weeks were lost to good old snowy wintertime.  Ugh!!

 

At our last monthly meeting, which was our business meeting, we incorporated our previously scheduled book swap.  So, not all was lost. 

 

I am happy to say that we are still having our Chair-Yoga every Thursday starting at 10:15.  So come a little early and enjoy these various relaxation techniques. 

 

Business meeting highlights:

-         Past meeting minutes were read and accepted.

-         Treasurer’s report was read and accepted.  All funds have now been transferred to Santander Bank.

 

Old Business:

-         We still need to hold a membership drive.  A chairperson is needed.  Any volunteers? 

New Business: 

a.       It was decided that we would hold our 2017 Christmas party at the Alpine Grove restaurant in Hollis.

b.      We now will be looking at having our summer picnic here at the Barn.  Stay tuned for more information.

 

Activities for the Month of March:

-         2 Mar:  Meet and greet.

-         9 Mar:  TBD

-         14 Mar:  Town voting at the Barn.  7AM-7PM.  Be sure to vote!

-         16 Mar: Let’s have a St Pat’s desert pot luck.  Bring your favorite “green” desert for all to share

-         18 Mar:  Hollis Town meeting at the High School, starting at 10AM.  Remember, this meeting is on a Saturday!

-         23 Mar:  TBD

-         30 Mar:  Monthly meeting along with birthday cake and ice cream.

 

March birthdays: Denise April, Kathleen Bastille, Jim Belanger, Nancy Bell, Patti Burke, Mark Marden and Evelyn Muzzey.

 

If we forgot someone, it is because we do not have your birth month for our database.  Please see Bob Fiero to update your information and renew your membership.

 

Future activities:

Hollis Town Band Pops Concert April 2nd

Enjoy a variety of music from original arrangements to classic marches as well as an array of delicious desserts at the 56th Annual Hollis Town Band Pops Concert Sunday, April 2nd at Alpine Grove, Rte 111A Hollis.  Doors open at 1:30PM. Tickets are $24 and include the concert plus a dessert buffet.  Tickets are available from Hollis Band members or by calling 603-883-2448.  

 

AARP Safe Driving Class 10-11 April

An AARP safe driving class will be held 10 and 11 April 2017 at the Nashua Senior Center, from 9AM-12 Noon each day.  Please call the Nashua Senior Center to register at 603-889-6155.

 

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.

Please let me know if you have suggestions for activities you are interested in for the group.
