Senior life

The center would like to thank the Chief Petty Officers Association (CPOA) who again put on a delicious holiday dinner at the Coast Guard Base.  About 100 seniors attended the luncheon.  Shown here are Jean and Charles Barber in their holiday wear.

Monthly activities continue at the center for the rest of December, with some special events added to the calendar. 

Veronica continues with Yoga each Monday morning as Deb does Tai Chi on Wednesdays, while Jodi, on Thursdays, conducts a yoga class.

This Friday will be the center’s Christmas dinner with a menu of Cornish game hens, yams, Brussel sprouts and a special dessert. 

The Golden Tones will lead us in some Christmas carols.  Come early for a good seat as we do expect a crowd. Call KATS 486-8308 for a ride to this event. 

That same day at 6 p.m. the KATS bus will be taking seniors on a tour of the town to see the holiday lights.  Sign up at the center as seating is limited. 

We will have an ice cream social on Dec. 30 at 1 p.m.  You don’t have to come for lunch to enjoy an ice cream treat.    

We also expect several different groups to come to the center to carol and also bring cookies.  

The center will close at 1 p.m. on Dec. 24 and be closed on Dec. 25.  The center will also close at 1 p.m. on Dec 31 and closed on New Year’s Day.  

 

REMODEL IN

JANUARY

Beginning Jan. 13, the kitchen floor will be replaced.  This floor is from the original building in 1985 and is cracked and needs to be replaced.  The center received a competitive grant for this project, which will take between one and two weeks to complete.  During that time, congregate and home delivered  meals will come from the Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center.  

The menu has been established and will be published in the January newsletter.  There will be an entrée and salad but no soup during the remodel time. 

We appreciate your patience during this construction period. 

We want to thank all the seniors who brought toys to give to the Kodiak Women’s Resource & Crisis Center.  And to all a very merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
