Ava Senior Center

Hope everyone has enjoyed the rain and we are ready for some cool weather. Happy Birthday to all our Seniors for the month of August. Don’t forget in September to come and see us for a free lunch on the first Wednesday of the month, in which the individual’s birthday falls in that month.

Next week will be submitting a write up on our Volunteer’s of the Month for August, so be sure and watch for it in the paper. Hope to see you at the center daily for lunch at 11:15. We have a great time with visiting and you can get your name in the drawing for a free lunch.

On August 11 we will have our monthly board meeting.

Every Monday night from 6-9 p.m. we would love for you to come and hear some great music. We always have a great group of singers and anyone can come and play or sing. Monday Night Music proceeds help to sponsor our salad bar three days a week.

This month we have a pitch tournament on the 2nd and 3rd Tuesdays at 12:15. Come and have some fun.

We also have a foot clinic by appointment only. Be sure and call the senior center for more information.

The OATS bus serves our community, so if you need a ride, be sure and call and find out the schedule.

Don’t forget our Meals on Wheels program. We can use volunteers to help with taking lunch to our senior. We are providing a meal on a short or long term basis to homebound seniors, 60 years or older, who are unable to prepare a nutritionally balanced noon meal for themselves, and are unable to attend congregate meal at the center.

Watch for some updates on an event that will help support our local senior center.

During the hot weather, please, check on your family, friends, neighbors and pets.

Come and check out our Facebook page for updates at Ava Senior.

Don’t forget our hours at the Ava Center are 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Call us if you have any questions at 683-5712.
