Senior News: December
The Christmas Party
Wasn’t that a great party? With close to 300 attending, everyone had a great time … one of the best parties ever! Lunch was prepared by the Senior Nutrition Lunch program of Placerville and it was delicious. We thank our local Rotary Club of El Dorado Hills for donating and preparing the outstanding banana splits. They were so good. We also thank our El Dorado Hills Fire Department staff for serving lunch and cleaning up. They always do such a great job. I hope everyone is enjoying the Christmas holiday as much as I am. It is cold and brisk, but warm weather is on the way.
Our next big party will be the Valentine Party on Friday, Feb. 8. Call the Senior Center at (916) 358-3575 soon to make your reservations.
Thank yo for our beautiful new tree
Sincere thanks go to the El Dorado Hills Firefighters Association for purchasing the beautiful new redwood as the “unofficial” Christmas tree in El Dorado Hills. El Dorado County grounds crew staff planted the tall new tree at the Senior Center along the boulevard. This effort required a crane! Thanks to the financial support of the association members, we were able to get an eye-catching specimen that was decorate-able this very year. The Fire Department spent many hours on Thanksgiving weekend lighting the tree. We hope you can drive by after dark and catch some holiday spirit.
Senior Nutrition lunches
Delicious and nutritious lunches are served weekdays at noon, at the El Dorado Hills Senior Center, 990 Lassen Lane. For seniors 60 and older the suggested donation is $3, all others $5. This is a great place to have lunch, meet new people and visit with friends.
Coming in January
If you haven’t been to the Senior Center yet, join us for our brand new Senior Center Orientation Meeting the first Wednesday of the month. We will serve you a continental breakfast, tour you through the Center and tell you all about our wonderful programs. We like to think we have something for everyone! Please call by Dec. 31 to hold your spot as time is short with the New Year holiday closure.
In January we will also have ukulele lessons, a new painting class begins, potsticker workshop, an AARP Mature Driver Course and Bob Billingsley, one of our favorite speakers is bringing “Ageless Joy is Possible.” Also Dr. Ron Simms will present his free Lunch and Learn Program, “Strengthen Your Immune System.” You can also learn to make delicious chocolate truffles; just in time for Valentine’s Day we are offering a Truffle Making Workshop. Call the Senior Center for dates and details at (916) 358-3575.
The Senior Center will be closed Tuesday, Jan. 1.
Robert Euer, Joan Eyre, Annette Kruth, Carol Waller and Senior Center Staffer Janet Kenneweg all celebrated birthdays in December. We hope had a wonderful birthday!
