MCK SENIOR CENTER: A feast for $4

Tomorrow (Thursday, July 25) is wood voucher day! I know that it’s been in the paper for three weeks straight but I don’t want anyone who lives in the McKinleyville area to miss out and have to drive to Eureka or miss out on getting wood for this winter.

mckseniorcenterbox.Bring verification of income, a photo ID and verification of residence to get your winter wood. They will be here Thursday, July 25, from 9 a.m. until noon and from 1 p.m.  until 2:30 p.m.

The end of the month luncheon will be held on Wednesday, July 31 at noon. The cost is $4 and for that the Crew will be serving barbecue chicken wings, veggie pasta salad and dessert. Please reserve your space by Friday July 26.

The High Steppers, our walking group, met last Saturday at the McKinleyville Land Trust’s trail area Chah-GAH-Cho. The new trail area is located at the end of Betty Court in McKinleyville. Betty Court is where the Mill Creek Cinema is, behind Kmart. The area is 9.4 acres of forest and prairie with a view of the coast, according to the flyer I read. In the future there are plans for benches, signs, doggie pots and bike racks to make the area more accessible. There are fund raising efforts under way help make the above dream a reality. Another beautiful place to walk here in town.

The Low Vision Group will meet at the Center on Monday July 29 at 10 a.m. The Low Vision Group is not only for those with vision loss but also their family members. The Group leader, Doug Rose, leads lively discussions on how those suffering from vision loss can remain safely in their homes as well as a great resource base for equipment to help those coping with vision difficulties. For family members who do not suffer from a loss of vision, the group will teach you how to help your friends and relatives navigate through a seeing world.

The Friday morning Craft group has disbanded due to lack of interest. If you would be interested in a craft group come talk to me and we will see if we can get something started.
