In this game show, a panel of celebrities received questions and responded with partial answers. Contestants then tried to complete their answers by filling in the blanks. In our version, we will see if our contestants can match each others' answers.

AARP Driver Safety Program, Monday, May 20 & Tuesday, May 21. This program is designed for drivers age 50 or better, and will take place on Monday, May 20 from 12:30 to 4:45 p.m. and Tuesday, May 21 from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. The cost for this two-day program is $12 for members of AARP and $14 for non-members.Fees should be paid by check and made out to AARP. Class registration may be made in person at the Senior Center, by phone, or by mail.
Note: AARP membership, which cannot be processed the day of a class, is not required for class registration. There is no "behind the wheel" driving performed in this program. Drivers age 55 or better must attend both classes to receive the state mandated three-year automobile insurance reduction. Many insurance companies are giving insurance reductions to drivers age 50+ with the same attendance requirements. Those less than age 55 should check with their insurance company to see if they are entitled to the three-year insurance reduction. Class enrollment is limited to 25.
Culture Day Veteran's Panel, Wednesday, May 22 at 1 p.m. In honor of Armed Forces Day, there will be an informal patron panel discussion of those who served in the U.S. military to share stories and to talk about the good and challenging experiences faced while in service. All of us have benefitted from the dedication and sacrifice of our uniformed men and women (and their families), but many of us know very little of what life was actually like in the military. If you are interested in being a part of the panel please let us know, and also feel free to bring in any pictures or memorabilia to show the group. This should be a very interesting event.
May Birthday Bash Karaoke, Friday, May 31 at 1 p.m. Karaoke Jockeys Sam and Dave are back with their fantastic selection of songs, so come sing along! You are sure to find something to suit your musical tastes. Individual and group performances are encouraged! Remember you do not have to be celebrating a birthday to come celebrate with us. Cake and beverage served. Please register for this program by calling 898-3807.
Computer Classes and General Use. The computers are available for general use Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. unless the lab is reserved for programmed activities. Currently classes are held on Tuesdays in the lab. To use the computers you must sign in at the Senior Center front desk.
Volunteers Needed: Do you have a flair for design? Can you turn regular everyday household items into a work of art? We are looking for individuals to assist and instruct make-it/take-it projects. Please call 898-3807 if you can help.
