The month of September started off with a bang (or should I say a movie). We had even more excitement as the month went on. We also added 2 new members.
They are MaryAnn Stawasz and Mary Willis.
Come by and say, “welcome” at the next meeting.
At our next meeting, we had a lecture and demonstration by Lucy DesRoches on “The Wonderful World of Make Believe.” This centered on hand-made doll clothes made by Lucy, who is a master seamstress. This allows little girls to enjoy “make believe.” Even “big girls” in the audience were enchanted.
At our next meeting Stan updated us on the “blue bus.” It should be noted that the blue bus has had an extension to its schedule. It now operates 5 days a week, from 8AM to 6PM, Monday thru Friday. And along with transporting folks to their medical appointments the “bus” now makes trips to shopping areas. See below about how to register with the “bus” if you have not yet done so.
At our 4th meeting of the month, we were presented with a detailed explanation regarding ServiceLInk by Jasmine Harris from their Nashua office. ServiceLink is a clearing house for seniors with questions ranging from Medicare, transportation, housing, and drug purchases to just about anything that seniors may have questions about. You can call ServiceLInk at 1-866-634-9421 or at the Nashua number of 603-598-4709 or visit them at their web site of www.ServiceLink.org.
Seniors were also busy at the Hollis Old Home Days. We set up our information tent and displayed our various activities.
We then had our monthly business meeting. But, that is not all. The day after our business meeting a group of us (14 seniors) took a bus trip, which was arraigned by Nancy Bell, to the Castle in the Clouds. We explored the Castle, had lunch in the horse stables and had desert in Wolfeboro, NH where we almost caught the ferry. It was a great day.
Check out our web site to see recent photos of the above activities.
