This will be a short newsletter as your editor/photographer and his wife have been on vacation for most of September. But, I will try and bring everyone up to date as to the September happenings and what is scheduled for October.
During September, there were various events to include musical serenades, scientific quizzes and yoga exercises. At our last meeting of the month, we had the our Chair Yoga exercise group get together and “stretch out.” This is a great way for seniors to stay limber and have fun. We also had the Nashua Seniors “Silver Lining” singing group perform for us (see photo). This 12 member-singing group is simply outstanding. Be sure to hear them at the upcoming senior variety show on 6 November. You can get tickets for the variety show by calling the Nashua Senior Center.
Our last meeting was also the monthly business meeting. Along with birthday announcements, we had cake and ice cream.
Business meeting highlights:
- Past meeting minutes were read and accepted.
- Treasurer’s report was read and accepted.
- We still need to do a membership drive. A chairperson is needed.
- The Hollis Seniors checking account is being moved from the Bank of America to Santander.
- We are now paying in advance for MOW. This seems to be working well.
