Put-in-Bay Senior Center April 2011 What’s Happening?
I want to start out this month by welcoming back all our “Snowbirds” at the Put-in-Bay Senior Center. You’ve been greatly missed, and we’re glad you’re back. Our winter has been frigid and seemed to last FOREVER! Let’s say we’re all thrilled beyond words to have our ferries up and running!!!!
We’ve added two new programs to our April calendar. First, there’s a Creative Scrapbooking Class every Tuesday at 1 p.m. This will be a perfect opportunity for you to gather up your old photos stuffed away in a box somewhere and create your special scrapbook full of memories. Just think how much fun we can have!!!!!
Our second exciting new program added to the senior center schedule will be Computer Classes for Seniors. Mrs. Cerny will offer classes and the Put-in-Bay Computer Club on Wednesdays, the 6th, 13th, and 27th, at 3:30 p.m. in the school’s computer room. Apparently, we need to “get up to speed” with today’s computer technology. And yes, “You can teach an old dog new tricks!!!” We will learn several computer skills, from basics like Microsoft Word and email to uploading pictures, Skype, and Photoshop. Space is limited, so you will need to RSVP.
This year’s Spring Clean Up for St. Paul’s Church will be held on Saturday, April 9th. Everyone, young and old, is encouraged to come out, take in some fresh air, and pitch in. The Put-in-Bay PTA has organized a hot dog lunch at the Senior Center for all the students on Tuesday, April 12th. Grandparents and parents are welcome to join us. The American Legion Post 542 will hold its monthly meeting and lunch at the Senior Center on Thursday, April 21st. All Vets are welcome to attend.
Put-in-Bay Senior Center April 2011 Annual Easter Egg Hunt
The Annual Easter Egg Hunt is scheduled for Saturday, April 23rd, at Perrys Cave. Festivities will begin at 11 a.m. with a visit from the Easter Bunny himself! And just like last year, our Senior Center will fill over 4000 eggs for this eggs-citing event. Games, refreshments, and fun for everyone! Ottawa County Health Department will be at the Senior Center on Thursday, April 28th, for our monthly 60+ Health Clinic. Please call Candace at the center if you need to schedule an appointment.
And finally, on Friday the 29th, Gina and her team of Physical Therapists from CGA Therapies will be at the senior center for an informative presentation on Fall Prevention. They will be discussing a number of very important issues and offering helpful tips along with answering any questions you might have. Please plan to attend. Wishing you and yours peace, love, and a very Happy Easter.
