Oscoda County Senior News

OSCODA – Hello fall!

I don’t know about you but I am extra excited to see the leaves change this year! I hope it’s spectacular.

Here is what going on in September:

Sept. 2: A full moon but we are having an assessment done here at the center so that will be an interesting day0

Sept. 7: The Center will be closed that day- as I’m sure most of Oscoda County will be – lets hope for some great weather to help us celebrate the end of summer!

Sept. 13: Grandparents day!  I’m not sure how many of you have grandparents – but I know nearly all of you ARE grandparents so HAPPY GRANDPARENTS DAY! Enjoy! I can’t hug you physically – but I hugged each and every one of these news articles to send to you.  

Sept. 14: Monthly Board meeting here at the Center at 1 p.m. until further notice. Come see the process behind the curtain.

Sept. 22: First day of Autumn, and the monthly-food-senior-cheese-box distribution from 10-11 a.m. at the fairgrounds.  (Why is everything happening on the same day?  Weird!) 

Sept. 24: Rite Aid will be here to do a flu shot clinic from 11 a.m. To 12 p.m. at the Center.  Also that day is The Together We Can Food Pantry food drop at the fairgrounds from 11:30 a.m. To 12:30 p.m. 2:30.  They would also like me to let you know they have an extra food distribution on Sept. 10  (which is also the day of the V.A. meeting… I’m sensing a pattern.)

Every year we have 4 topics we must cover in our news articles: “How food choices affect chronic illness”, “Food safety at home and when dining out”, “Food choices at home” and “Emergency preparedness – what to have on hand”. 

My belief is our God given bodies are created to sustain life on Earth.  Maybe we should be looking for clues to health from the planet we were created to live on. Not a lab.  Just a thought.  Have a great month.  See you in October!
