Hello neighbors. It’s that time of year when we tend to stay in because of the weather or the flu. It’s a good time to catch up on your reading. Fortunately our branch library is still open, but the new Logan County library is still closed. There is a lot to be done when moving such a large inventory.
You can always pick up a couple of magazines in the checkout counter at Dollar General and they have a small selection of books both paperbacks and hardbacks. You can purchase newspapers or rent a movie and order a pizza at Minute Mart. Try to get out about once or twice a week.
We are fortunate to have places to go and visit with friends or make new ones. New Friendship and New Life churches have their quilters. Scrap bookers gather at Sisterhood Embroidery. This is a good winter project, putting together all those photos you took during summer vacations.
Our Senior Center is open 9 am to 1 pm Mon.-Fri., with activities available. The coffee pot is always on, so you can drop by to visit. There is a limited variety of books available here as well. I dropped off three that I had finished reading and picked up three more.
Sue Ellen Browning will be disappointed in me. I still haven’t started a new jigsaw puzzle. But there is always something to do. Yesterday was the first Rook tournament. Another one is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 24. All you Rook players have been asking for this so come on out.
The weekly schedule always has Bingo and potluck lunch on Wednesday. Also available are Dominos, Rummy, Skip-Bo, corn hole games, and movies on Friday.
The first dance of the year is tonight from 6 – 9 pm. The band Old Habits is her to start off our New Year schedule. A potluck meal will be served. Cost is $3.00 per person and doors open at 5:30 pm.
Next week’s schedule begins with a potluck breakfast at 9:00 am followed by Dominos. On Tuesday at 9 am we begin with an introduction to crocheting followed by craft time and the knitting of scarves. Bingo and lunch on Wednesday and Coffee with Chief Ron Mills who will answer questions and offer safety tips. Rook tournament on Friday followed by movie and popcorn. Lest we forget, free line dancing classes pm Tuesday 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
New visitors to the center this week, were Judy and Gary Jones who stopped by to pick up an events schedule and stayed for coffee and fellowship. What a delightful couple. Gary has a great mustache, kinda looks like Hercule Periot. Although they are longtime residents of Auburn, Judy says their only claim to fame is their daughter Chris Cooper. Proud parents I’d say.
Tai Chi classes begin on Tuesday Jan. 28, taught by Community Action of Bowling Green. This will be a six week class meeting twice weekly on Tuesday and Thursday at 9:00am. Tai Chi for arthritis originated in ancient China and is an effective exercise for health, now practiced throughout the world. Tai Chi consists of fluid movements that a relaxed and slow in tempo. It can be practiced almost anywhere and is suitable for just about anyone.
In case you haven’t noticed when driving down East Main, we now have an Auburn County Club on the left just L & M garage. There is a sign out front but no membership rates listed. Don’t know if you have to be nominated for membership or if you just pay a fee to join. At present, it is not known if a golf course or putting green will be added, although there does seem to be enough land for a tennis court. One important note, be sure to park headed in the right direction. Officer Mills will, at the very least come in and ask you to move your vehicle. You might want to have a designated driver for this purpose.
That’s all folks! Have a blessed day.
