Oscoda Senior News: May

Hooray for May! We all know Michigan weather is unpredictable at times, but hopefully the cooler temps and the rain will be leaving soon. The week that seemed like summer was certainly a surprise in April!

It was very nice to have a warm, pretty day for Easter. It is also good to see things beginning to bloom and turn green. We’ll see what happens, but we are wishing for sunshine.

Some dates to make note of in May. National Teachers Day on May 2, National Nurses Day on May 6, and Armed Forces Day on May 20. These three service professions are always deserving of praise.

May is also when we appreciate our mothers. Mother’s Day is May 14 this year. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there and the dads who have been both.

Memorial Day is May 30. Take a moment to honor and remember all those in the Armed Forces that made the ultimate sacrifice of their lives for us.

We would also like to congratulate and ask the rest of you to congratulate the grads from Fairview and Mio Schools. Over the last few years, these students have had to deal with so many challenges and changes in their high school lives.

The food drops happening this month are The Golden Grocery Giveaway Program (formerly called Senior Cheese Box) will be happening on Tues. May 16 from 10 – 11 a.m. The Together We Can Food Pantry will be on Thurs. May 25 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. They ask that you bring an ID to show you live in the county and a banana box if you have one. If the food runs out, they will be gone before 2:30. Both food drops happen at the fairgrounds.

The council’s monthly board meeting will be May 8 at 1 p.m. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

May 10 will be the last day the Senior Center will be offering to-go meals.

Our exercise class is still taking place on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. You can join in any week, meet some new people, and get yourself moving.

We have been happy to have those that registered and have been attending the Tai Chi class at the Senior Center. We hope to be able to continue offering these and many other classes here.

May’s full Moon, also called the Flower Moon, will be shining for us on May 5.

There is always at least one thing to be grateful for daily. Have a marvelous month and keep smiling! When we smile at others, it can cause them to smile too. The world sure needs more smiles, positivity, and kindness. A small gesture goes a long way.
