Calling all seniors

I don’t know how many of you are aware of the desperate situation the San Manuel Senior Center is in.

At one time we had 75 paid members. Last year we had only 15, and nine of those were board members or spouses.

We have lost so many members. Some have gone to be with the Lord, some have gone to retirement homes, some to live with their children. The rest of us are not in the best of health. We would love to have new members. Come on, guys, it’s only $15 per year.

The LDS Relief Society stepped up to give us a hand with donation for a yard and bake sale. They also donated a king-sized, handmade quilt which we are selling tickets for to be raffled off before Christmas.

Thank you so much LDS Relief Society! We made $397.30 at the yard and bake sale, despite the weather not being so great.

I want to give a very special thank you to Sharon Mathews who organized the sale and worked tirelessly. Also a special thanks to Chuck and Jan Kincaid, Sister Davis, Joan Loy, Genevieve Swandt, Jeanie Woods and all of you who helped.

/s/ Maxine Gillespie, San Manuel Senior Center
