June 2009


It is with a sad note that we must announce that Arnold Rowe past away last month.  Our condolences to Marge and family.


During May, we heard from Rita DiClemente and her show “This is your life.”  Very interesting and detailed.  Furthermore, Rita was the guest speaker for the Memorial Day Ceremony held in Hollis.  Her speech was OUTSTANDING.  Many people also were surprised to learn she was an USAF veteran.


Members also participated in a Scavenger hunt.  And to think some of us threw away some of those “old” treasures.  Little did we know how valuable they were.  We also had a great lunch at the HBMS.


As you know, some of the seniors got together to “sponsor a child.”  Her picture, Alexis Rose, is shown below.  Thanks to all the seniors who sponsored this little girl.


We also held another AARP Defensive Driving Class in the “Barn” with several members in attendance.



Activities for the months of June and July.

-          4 Jun: MOW + Blood pressure.  This will be the last MOW for the summer.

-          11 Jun: Seniors Picnic, with a magic show.  You shouldn’t miss this event!

-          16 Jun: HBMS lunch

-          18 Jun: Bring your own lunch

-          25 Jun: VT Country Store tour.  You must “pre-paid” in advance NTL 4 Jun 09.  Call Rita if you wish to go.
