Ava Senior Center

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July and enjoyed time with family and friends.

We have a busy month and would love to have you come and enjoy lunch with us. We will be welcoming new board members at this month’s board meeting on July 14 at 12:15 at the center. We welcome Ron Tost, Teresa Tost and Jerry Huffman. I am going to try and write about what is going on each month at the center. Remember to stop by for lunch at 11:10 a.m. We try and start serving around 11:20 a.m. Check the paper for weekly menu’s or come and visit our facebook page. Search for Ava Senior, we post daily menu’s and activities that is going on that day.

On June 29th the seniors were blessed with some great music from Haley Beard. She sang four wonderful songs. It’s great to see the kids come and perform for our seniors. We appreciate it, Haley, you did a great job.

Remember to come over and have a meal with us for a small fee, coffee is available too, but visiting with friends is free. Our menu is subject to change without notice.

We want to wish all of our seniors a very happy birthday and hope you have a wonderful birthday. The activities this month are Monday night music from 6-9 p.m. If you haven’t had a chance to come down, please do, they have a great variety of music. Come and be part of our pitch tournament on July 7th and 21st or come and play pinochle on July 15th at 12:15, along with a foot clinic by appointment on July 16th and 23rd and get your blood sugar screening on July 20th from 9:30-10:30. So as you see we have a variety of things for you to do at the center along with a free book exchange.

Watch for information about our silent auction at the center. We also deliver meals daily and we appreciate our volunteers who take time out of their day to make sure our seniors have a hot meal during the week and meals for the weekend. If you would like to volunteer to help deliver meals, please, contact us at the center. We also have the OATS bus that goes to Sprinfield and around Ava. Call for more information.
