My riddle for you this week is: what kind of money do the snowmen use at the North Pole?
The center is now open for lunch and activities.
Here are the guidelines they will follow:
- Meals on Wheels customers are always served. If you are not comfortable eating inside, curbside meals will still be offered and served from 10 am to 10:30 am; reservation is required. Also, if you are having lunch at the center, let Teresa know the day before.
- If you are sick or have been exposed to COVID, please do not come to the center.
- Everyone is encouraged to wear a mask and it will be provided if you do not have one.
- We will follow CDC guidelines for social distancing. If you have any concerns or questions, you can call the center at 304-372-5151.
The schedule of indoor activities and lunch is as follows:
- Monday 9:30 am to 10:30 am: Crafts
- Tuesday 9:30 am to 10:30 am: Bingo
- Wednesday 9:30 am to 10:30 am: Exercise
- Thursday 9:30 am to 10:30 am: Bingo
- Friday 9:30 am to 10:30 am: Exercise
Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to noon.
We will respect social distancing in our activities. Bingo will be played with paper cards that can be thrown away.
Charley Smart and Ann Thaxton were the lucky winners of the bingo combination on January 4th. They split the price of the $ 10 suit between the two of them.
The center will be closed on Monday January 17 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Friday January 28 for training. A reminder that the food box pickup at Bethel Baptist Church will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 12 from 10 a.m. to noon, and the senior meeting will be on Tuesday, Jan. 18 at 10:30 a.m.
Carmen and I gave a craft class on January 3rd. The old people painted terracotta pots to look like snowmen. They decorated them with grandma’s earmuffs and glasses. They were the cutest snowmen I had seen in a long time.
The Farmer’s Almanac has predicted a “Season of the Shivers” for the winter of 2022. Guess we’ll have to wait and see. The Almanac has an 80% accuracy weather forecast rate. As of this writing, the meteorologist is predicting 3-5 inches of snow for our area.
The January moon is called the wolf moon. The full moon will be on Monday January 17th. It is believed that the full moon in January is known as the Wolf Moon because wolves were more likely to be heard howling around this time.
I want to remind you of the bad weather policy of the Jackson County Centers. When Jackson County schools are closed due to bad weather, senior centers are closed. If school is two hours late due to bad weather, senior centers will be open but vans will not run. When Jackson County schools are closed or delayed due to inclement weather, meals will not be delivered.
I leave you with the following verses:
Psalm 86: 1 Incline your ear, Lord, listen to me, for I am poor and needy.
Psalm 86: 2 Preserve my soul; for I am holy: you my God, save your servant who trusts in you.
Psalm 86: 3 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I cry to you every day.
Answer to the riddle: hard money!
