Mary B from Area VI Agency on Aging will be at the center Nov. 17 to go over Medicare Part D information regarding medication plans. If you are interested, please call and schedule a time to talk with her.

The Senior Center will be having a Bake Sale at the 4-H Bazaar on Dec. 9 at the St. Ignatius High School Gym.

The center is collecting coats, scarves, mittens/gloves and socks for elementary and middle school kids. We are accepting new and slightly used items to help keep kids warm during the winter.

Thanks to all who played bingo Nov. 4; the next game will be in January.

The Mission Valley Food Pantry needs plastic grocery bags, empty boxes that will hold up to 30 pounds and cartons that will hold a dozen eggs. We are also in the need of volunteers to help clients from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays. 

Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy a meal at the center at noon Fridays and Tuesdays and 5:30 p.m. select Wednesdays. Menus are available via email, mail, or at the center. If you are interested in a take-out meal, please call 406-745-4462 by 10 a.m. and leave a message.

Main dishes include: Thanksgiving dinner, 5:30 p.m. Nov. 15; turkey-noodle soup, noon Nov. 17; and beef spaghetti, noon Nov. 21.

We invite you to become a member of the Senior Citizen Center for a fee of $10 a year. You can join us at any age.

Gentle Yoga meets at 1 p.m. Wednesdays (call 406-253-0177); and Foot Hill Club gathers at 1 p.m. on the second and fourth Wednesdays for snacks and cards. 

The center has a computer available for public use from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays; and several personal-care items are available to share. The facility is also available to rent.

If you need help with transportation, respite and home health services, or other information, call the friendly people at Lake County Council on Aging in Ronan at 406-676-2367.
