Senior Citizens of Kodiak, Inc. will be celebrating the Annual Stan and Nita Nelson Barbecue at the center Friday, July 4, right after the American Legion parade. Though the center is officially closed that day we have been holding this barbecue for more than a decade to honor the Nelsons who contributed part of their estate to our agency’s Endowment Fund.

The Nelsons lived in Kodiak for many years and they recognized the services provided by the center and how important they were.

The barbecue will begin right after the July 4th parade with a menu of hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad and backed beans. The event is for seniors only and is sponsored by the endowment fund.

As we roll into a new fiscal year, we have activities to keep seniors busy throughout the summer. We have added a walk each Wednesday and Friday to the activity list of keeping people active. Come to the center at 9:30 a.m. on July 2 and enjoy a walk across the bridge to Near Island or other places.

Other activities this month include chair yoga on Mondays, exercise with Katrina on Thursdays, the movie “Red Tails,” on Monday, July 7 and a button art project on July 9. The international lunch this month will be Thai food on July 25. A birthday lunch and book club will both be held on July 11 due to July 4th. If you have other ideas for activities, please contact Beverly at 486-6181.
