Special Events/ Calendar Updates

The weather was just about perfect for our first Senior Summer Games. Thanks to everyone who contributed their time to plan the games and to those who helped during the games.  What a great group to work with!!!
The donations from several of our members were really appreciated.  Thanks so much. Finally, many members enjoyed the gazebo and are thinking of other events that could be held there.  Do you have some ideas??  Share them at the next members meeting Sept. 27th at 10:00.

At the members meeting Jeanne thanked everyone who helped with the yard work.  Great job!!

Some Yelm Seniors are helping Yelm rotary fill 200 meal bags for local youths who are eligible for free lunches.  If you would like to help, they work at the Senior Center on Sunday from 1:30 to 2:30.
