May 2011

 

The month of April turned out to be a busy as well as an interesting month for us.  We started with our monthly movie, “The Blind Side” which was a hit.

 

Our next activity was a spinning demonstration given by Heidi Cadwell.  She brought her spinning wheel with her and showed us how she produced beautiful yarn from sheep’s wool.  We all enjoyed this program.  Heidi educated and entertained us.

 

Officer Tracy Dunn presented an excellent lecture on senior safety at our next meeting.  This covered both home safety and drug safety.  Officer Dunn also announced that on 30 April, from 10AM to 2PM, there is a free drug “take back” program being held at the Hollis Police Station.  This is an opportunity to for everyone to dispose of any old or unneeded medicines. 

 

As a final note, we are getting ready to take a ”chocolate trip”.  I believe just about all the seats are already taken, but you can check in with Nancy at 603-465-7822 for any open seats.  Looks like we have a bunch of “chocolate lovers”!

 

And check out our web site for recent activity photos.

 

The business meeting was held on 28 April 2011.
