Ava Senior Center

We have a lot of things going on the next two weeks. We are always looking for volunteers to help with our Meals On Wheels program. Every Monday night is music from 6-9 p.m. Come and listen to some great music and enjoy the air conditioning. Do you like to play cards? On July 21 we will be having a pitch tournament starting at 12:15. Come for lunch then stay and play cards. Don’t forget to call the center for the foot clinic on July 23. This is by appointment only.

Don’t forget you can come daily and have lunch with us. Check the paper for our menu or facebook.

On July 14 the board held their first meeting after electing new members. The following were elected: President,-Jerry Huffman and Vice-President-Ron Tost. All member were in attendance, as well as, Administrator, Bonnie Evans.

During the new business it was suggested that a weekly drawing be held for a free meal for individuals who pay for lunch at the center. One individual cannot win more than once a month.

Also reinstated was the birthday free lunch on the first Wednesday of the month in which the individual’s birthday falls in that month.

We will also be starting a program honoring our volunteers. This will be called Volunteer of the Month and their picture along with a write up will be posted at the center and also be posted on our facebook page and in the paper. This is a way we can express how grateful we are for our volunteers.

Don’t forget we also have the Oats bus available. Be sure and call the center for the phone number if needing transportation.

Our hours at the center are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. Our number is 417-683-5712.
