You need not be a member to participate in events, programs

-A A +A



I want to thank all my family and friends who came to Tommy and my 50-year Mass for renewing our vows. I was so happy to have our three children and their spouses with grandchildren surrounding us.
Thanks to Father Jim Graf and Dr. David Whitlock for making it a very special occasion. Thanks for so many friends that came and supported us. Thanks to some, although I had said “NO presents, just your presence” that had to have it their way. I figure they know I like to eat.
We are looking forward to getting the pictures and watching the video from the Abells.
It is hard for me to comprehend how many trails I have covered, uncovered, and covered again. I am wondering if the next 50 will go by as quickly as these last 50 have gone.  
I need to clarify that one does not need to be a club member to participate in any events or programs at the Loretto Senior Center. That includes our Friday meals, any classes or programs scheduled, or just wanting to come in to fellowship. Club membership at 55 years entails benefits to entice one to be a member while enjoying programs.
While we welcome all, we may have to prioritize on occasion with age for certain events or program.
You do need to be 55 years young to be part of the Lincoln Trail meals, which are served every Tuesday at noon.
We have scheduled on Tuesdays from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. for anyone in the community that would like to come in and have their blood pressures checked. There will be qualified personnel here to take your blood pressure in our own private medical room.  
Always keep in mind that when there is no school due to snow there will not be meals on Tuesdays. School cancelation does not affect the remaining days of the week for the center being open.
There are still seats available for the trip going into the JFK and Cape Cod area in June on the 21-29. That is on a Saturday through the next Sunday. The en route home attraction is the Hershey Chocolate Factory. Dark chocolate with almonds nuggets here I come. Call me at 270-699-9898 for an itinerary if interested in going north east with us.
Friday, March 7, we will be serving potato soup with ham salad or pimento cheese sandwiches. Also included is dessert and drink. Dine in or take out. If you work within three miles and have five or more orders, there is delivery if you call ahead with your time.
March 18, Carol Baldwin, SHIP coordinator with LTADD, will be at the center at 11 a.m. for questions and to answer your medical coverage needs. All seniors are welcome to attend if you have insurance concerns.
March 21, there is going to be bean soup and corn bread with dessert and a drink.
There is a trip planned to Cincinnati Museum for April 23 to see the Diana Exhibition. Call Loretto Center or me for more details.
If you know nothing or very little about the use of a computer now is your chance to learn. There is a class scheduled for April 2 and 3 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. for those that are a true beginner and want to learn the basics. Cost for the two four-hour day will be $50. That will also include your lunch both days. Class will consist of only six. Deadline to pay and register is March 21.
Lebanon Senior Center is in need of having some new attendees and participation at the center. Lebanon’s center is open Monday through Friday unless there is a snow day or the occasional holiday. They have the hot nutritious meal every day for the suggested donation of $2. There are various programs for those in attendance and bi-weekly blood pressure checks.
Bradfordsville’s weekly lunch is on Thursday at noon.
The phone number at the Loretto Senior Center is 270-865-2011 and my number is 270-699-9898 if you want to verify happenings.
Happy trails to you until we meet again.
