OSCODA COUNTY- Welcome September! We have entered the “ber” months. This means the days are beginning to approach summer’s end. September is my favorite month. We usually still have warmth during the day, but it is cooler at night which is perfect for sitting around a nice bonfire. However, we have also experienced some September’s that were still very hot and humid. If we have one of those this year, remember you can come to the Senior Center and cool down in the air conditioning.
The food drops happenings this month are the Golden Grocery Giveaway Program (senior cheese box) will be happening on Tues. Sept. 19 from 10 – 11 a.m. The Together We Can Food Pantry will be having a veggies/produce box on Thurs. Sept 7, and then the regular box on Thurs. Sept 21. Both drops are from 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. All food drops happen at the fairgrounds.
I have received an email from the Project Fresh Program Manager saying they had some coupons they could still give out. I told them to please send me what they could. This is not a guarantee that more coupons will be sent, but I am hopefully. If I receive them, I will get the word out on our Facebook page as well as the Up North Voice. If you have already received coupons, please know that individuals who have not received any coupons yet will have first dibs on getting the books that do come. Once they have been taken care of, I will put it out on the outside sign at the Senior Center. Thank you for your patience with this.
The exercise class is still happening on Tuesday mornings from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. It’s a great class with awesome music. Come join in!
The Harvest Moon for September will be beautifully shining on Sept. 29. I hope you get to see it!
There is always at least one thing to be grateful for daily.
Have an amazing month and keep smiling! Pass on the smiles to brighten someone else’s day too. A small, kind gesture goes a long way. We are not alone; everyone is struggling with something.
