Hello August! The weather seems to be a daily surprise lately. Just remember, if it is hot and humid, you can do your outside activities in the early morning or evenings hours to avoid the strong sun.
The Senior Center is open Mon -Fri from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. If you need a place to cool down, come on in and relax for a while. You can read a book, use the computers, or just sit on the couch and stay cool.
The food drops happening this month are the Golden Grocery Giveaway Program (senior cheese box) which will be on Tues., Aug. 22, from 10 – 11 a.m. The Together We Can Food Pantry will be on Thurs., Aug. 24 from 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. They ask that you bring ID to show you live in the county and a banana box if you have one. If they run out of food, they will be gone before 2:30. Both food drops happen at the fairgrounds.
The council’s monthly board meeting will be on Mon., Aug. 14, at 1 p.m. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
As of July 11, all Project Fresh booklets have been given out. There has been a request for more books for the county if they are available.
There will be a Cooking for One class at the Center beginning Wed., Aug 16, from 1 – 3 p.m. Then continuing every Wed. at the same time for a total of 6 weeks. The class is free, but you must register ahead of time. This is a class with a small, with a limited number, so register right away. To register, call Lyndsay Dalke at 989-344-3264.
The exercise class is still happening on Tuesday mornings from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. It’s a fun class with some great music. Come join the fun!
August has two full moons for us to enjoy. The first full moon, also called the Sturgeon Moon, will be shining for us on Aug 1. The second full moon, called the Blue Moon, will be shining on Aug. 30.
There is always at least one thing to be grateful for daily. Have a spectacular month and keep smiling! Pass on the smiles to brighten someone else’s day too. When we smile at others it can cause them to smile too.
A small kind gesture goes a long way. We are all struggling with something.
