From Your Manager


Wishing you a very prosperous and healthy New Year!

We successfully completed our election and we welcome the new Board members. Wishing our new President Ted Heimbach success in his new position.

I would like to thank Buster Guth for all his support and guidance over the years. His dedication and contributions have made this Center a wonderful place to be. Buster will still be working with us at the Center as he will continue to be a Board member.

The Newsletter, which is quarterly, may not have items in it which were added or changed since it was printed. To help everyone, we will have a one page update at the beginning of the 2nd and 3rd months of each quarter. This will be available at the front desk. Please be sure to check the easels in the lobby for changes, as well.

Our Center was transformed over the holiday season into a Christmas delight with the help of our decorating team - Carol & Rod Shultz, Linda Godshall, and Faye Lachmann. Thank You!

There are many activities and programs coming up. They are described throughout this Newsletter. And please let me know of any comments about the Newsletter - your comments are important to the Center.

Summer is over and now it’s time to enjoy the beautiful Autumn colors.

Our picnic turned out really well. Everyone enjoyed Big Guys Food Truck. We will have a picnic every year. If you have an idea for next year’s picnic come see me or Debbie. Big thanks go out to the following Volunteers for all their help: Carol Tyson, Frances Lange, Sue Overbaugh, Carol Shultz, Rod Shultz, Pat Strogis, and Ted Heimbach.

On a separate page of this Newsletter, there is a copy of the Bingo game I created for you to play. My goal in creating this game is to get our members more familiar with our center. Rules and prizes are on the Bingo page. Go have fun and good luck. The winners will be announced in the next Newsletter.

Also, don't forget the Holiday Cash Raffle on November 19, and the Christmas Banquet on December 13.

From Your Newsletter Editor


Here is the first issue of our quarterly issue! We hope you like it - it has been reorganized and it is easier to follow through the three months.

As a third month is now included, there will always be items missed, as things change or are added post-printing. Please keep checking the Center lobby for items posted, as well as our website ( ), or call the Center. Also, another great place to keep up to date is by attending the Membership Meetings on the third Wednesday of each month at noon.
