If you still need to FILE YOUR TAXES and/or APPLY FOR THE PROPERTY TAX REDUCTION (CIRCUIT BREAKER), time is running out. Monday March 24th and Monday April 7th are the last two days that these services will be offered at the Kuna Senior Center. The policy is first come first served on both days, be sure to put your name on the sign up sheet as soon as you arrive. The list will be cut off after about twenty names since that is the quota that AARP can see in their time frame. It will be best if you get your name on the list no later than 9:30 or 10:00.
Some of you may have noticed that our front windows no longer have winter scenes painted on them, about time, right? Thank you Corey F. for your window washing service, we appreciate you! There are a few more paintings that need to be washed off which will be done this week.
We are sprucing up our center!! In a few weeks, our new round tables and padded chairs will be arriving. The round tables will make visiting during lunch much easier for folks. The padded chairs will be more comfortable than our plastic patio chairs have been. We hope our seniors will like our changes. We feel confident that the new outlay will also work for our bingo games. As we get older, change is not always easy, but with time, most of us do adjust to change.
A couple of our seniors got together this past Saturday to clean out our flower beds that are in front of our center. We removed dead plants and bushes, swept the patio and raked up pine needles. Last spring we planted mostly perennials which hopefully will return. As soon as we figure out what can be done to improve the drip lines, we will be adding more color in the flower beds and walk way.
SPEAKER: Nancy Alec will be at our center before lunch on Monday March 31st to speak to us about carbohydrates. I know I myself will greatly benefit from this topic since it is so easy to forget how we should be eating, or not eating.
