May 2017

 

On a sad note, one of our long time members, Dan Sherwin, died at the end of April.  Our condolences to Dan’s family.

 

This will be a short newsletter as your editorial staff was on vacation in the Netherlands and Belgium. 

 

We started the month with a potluck lunch, (so many wonderful selections) and a presentation by Reverend Rasmussen.  She presented an overview of her life in Europe where she spent 10 years at various locations.  Great travel log.

 

Then there was a spring hat show.

 

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.

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.

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:

AARP Safe Driving Class 22-23 May 2017

An AARP safe driving class will be held 22 and 23 May 2017 at the Nashua Senior Center, from 9:30AM-12:30 each day.  Please call the Nashua Senior Center to register at 603-889-6155.

 

Senior Picnic:  1 June 2017 at the Barn.

 

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.
