LITTLE FALLS - The Little Falls Senior Center is busy getting ready for all the coming holidays. Halloween is now past, but it was great fun, live music, dancing and costumes. It all concluded with a wonderful dinner.
Now it's time to start getting ready for Thanksgiving. We go all out with decorations for all holidays. The decorations paint a clear picture of the occasion. Members help checkout garage sales and thrift stores to contribute articles we can use to create the beautiful results. Searching the country roads produce much of what is used in the seasonal arrangements. Starting in the spring there are pussy willows and babies breath and soon after it's time for cattails, bittersweet and pampas grasses, plus whatever catches the eye to use for decorations.
Christmas is a great time to decorate. The ideas can be limitless with so much to choose from. Many volunteers contribute with the new ideas each season.
At the senior center, not only is it for the fun times, but it also is where everyone works together to make money to help keep the doors open. Cooperation and hard work shine through on the first Sunday of each month with pancake, sausage, eggs, coffee and juice for a mere $4.50. This includes all the pancakes you can eat. Thursdays start at 4 a.m. with homemade doughnuts being made. Not just a few doughnuts are made, different groups each week create more than 400 dozen of these mouthwatering treats by 10 a.m. It is a rare week when all the doughnuts do not sell out completely.
New members are always welcome to join, or stop by to enjoy a game of pool, cribbage, pinochle, or even an easy five cent card game.
Everyone is welcome to sign up for the delicious daily lunches that are available. The coffee pot is always on and colorful conversations is always had.
Lorraine and Myron Fafara are members/volunteers of the Little Falls Senior Center.
