February 2012

 

We started January with several plans that got way laid by the weather.  Oh well it is, after all, winter in New Hampshire.  Regardless of the weather we still had several events. 

 

We enjoyed a great slide show of past Hollis Old Home Days. It was fun seeing some of the old floats, parade vehicles and antique cars. 

 

At the next meeting Honi Glover told of her experiences as a lady driving 18 wheel tractor-trailers.  Remember, Honi started driving when basically driving big rigs was a “mans’ world.”   The tales of her experiences showed that Honi was a pioneer among women drivers.  And the rigs she drove were not air-conditioned, required double clutching to shift gears, etc.  Nothing like today’s big rigs that have bunk beds, air-conditioning, satellite communications, GPS, and every other gadget and convenience.   

 

We finished up the month with our business meeting where members got to voice their recommendations for future outings and events. 

 

Finally, the month had a sad note with the passing of Dot Warren.  Dot was a “fireplug” among our group and she was always ready to step in to help the group.  Our condolences to Dot’s family – Dot will be missed

 

Activities for the month of February

-          2 Feb:  MOW+ Blood Pressure + Movie

-     9 Feb:  The Hollis Fire Department will present several home safety programs

-          16 Feb:  The Hollis School Jazz band will be playing for us. They will start playing at 11:45, so come early and get a seat to hear this group.  I have heard them before and they are GREAT.

-          23 Feb:  Monthly business meeting

 

February Birthdays:  Harold Coss, Mable Geddes, Alex Gondola, Jackie Proctor, Dan Sherwin, Bob Smith, Josephine Stiles and Preston Walsh.

 

General:

1.      REMINDER:  Dues are now due!  Please see Basil for payment.

2.      The Hollis Seniors now have a gateway to post cancellations on WMUR TV, airing 15 and 45 minutes past the hour on Channel 9.  If the weather looks bad, check Channel 9 and the Hollis Channel 12.

3.      We have a business meeting the last Thursday of every month (except Thanksgiving).  Be sure to attend. 

4.      The SVTC bus service has gotten better.  If you have any questions, call Nashua transportation at 880-0100 Ext 1.  And you can visit the SVTC web site at www.SouheganRides.org.  And if you have not registered with the “blue bus”, please do so by calling the above number.

5.      We asked the “blue bus” if they could pick up several members on Thursday for our meetings.  The answer is “YES!”  We currently have 1 member who is using the blue bus service to attend our meetings.  Are there others who are interested? 

6.      Senior notification.  The Hollis communication center has a procedure in place by which seniors can be registered for Health and Welfare phone calls.  Forms to register for this service are available from the Communications Center.

 

Future Senior Activities of interest.

1.      How about a trip to the NH State House to see and hear our State Reps at work?  (We now have one of our own as a State Representative)

2.      How about a trip to the WW II Wright museum in Wolfeboro, NH.  It has been updated and a great place to visit.  Maybe during May 2012?

3.      How about having a TV weather person come and speak to us?

4.      We are going to investigate the possibility of combining some future events with the Nashua Seniors group. 

5.      Look into upcoming classes at RISE.  Some great programs are offered.

 

Please let me know your comments and wishes.
