Senior Center is first-class

My friend Abby and I rode our bicycles to the Blaine County senior center on one of our fleeting beautiful spring days a few weeks ago. We had decided to start embracing our senior status and explore the center. We were quite interested in the soda fountain. They have been updating the building and grounds and right off the bat we were impressed.

We were warmly welcomed when we entered and were given the tour. They have a state-of-the-art exercise room with a variety of excellent machines. While we were there, an exercise class was in session. There was a large TV in the room giving instruction. I asked what they were doing and was told they were "walking to Hawaii." Once they reach their goal, they get a luau.

They have a movie night once a week, and along with a recent movie they get popcorn and a drink for $1. They have bingo several times a week. Various classes are offered. Amazing lunches every day for $4 if you are a senior and $6 for everyone else. Any age is welcome to come into this wonderful facility and take advantage of what is offered.

I'm writing to support the senior center and urge all of my friends and future seniors (we're all on the same train) to support this valuable facility that is right now in the community. It is an important part of our valley and we are planning to use it, especially the soda fountain and then the exercise room. Check it out. Contribute, volunteer, support. Thank you.
