Senior center to hold final picnic in the lot

Published 7:01 am Sunday, October 16, 2016

At noon on Wednesday is our last picnic in the lot for the year.

This year we moved our picnic to the west side of the building for a more protected area. Plus, there is easy access to the dining room just in case the weather does not cooperate.

We will be having your choice of hamburger, brat or hotdog, potato salad, chips and dessert for only $5. No need to sign up; just follow your nose and join us.

On Friday is a potato bar in the coffee shop. You will get a baked potato with all the fixings and cream of broccoli soup for $5. Afterward join us for a free jewelry-making class at 2 p.m. on Friday. Sara’s sister Lisa and niece Chloe will be here to show you the latest techniques in making jewelry.

If you have some beads at home or want to make ear rings to go with that special outfit, come prepared. There will be all materials available if you would like help making your own. There will be a nominal fee for materials we provide. Please sign up for this fun class by stopping by the front desk or calling 507-433-2370.

You may not be old now, but if you’re lucky, one day you will be. We look forward to seeing you at our many programs at the Mower County Senior Center.

Don’t forget our coffee shop where every day you can have homemade soup for $1 and sandwich for 50 center. On Tuesday we will be serving tator tot hotdish for only $2.
