The Winlock Olequa Senior Center has a lot of wonderful things to offer our community. Many of you may not know that you can rent the building for any events needed. They also offer many services for the seniors in our area. I wanted to give a sample of the meals they cook for the community. On Wednesday, they will have chicken strips, tater tot’s, mixed vegetables and peaches. On Thursday, it’s cooks choice, Joanne Parkison informed me this is the day she decides what to cook and experiencing her food as a kid, I can guarantee you it will be great. On Friday, they will be having meat lasagna, garlic bread, pea’s with pearl onions, mandarin oranges and brownies. They also offer sewing times, pinochle, bingo and many other fun things to do where you can sit and meet new people. I admire Gary and Joanne Parkison for their dedication to the senior center. They take their volunteer times seriously, they are always there and as Joanne has said, “I enjoy my seniors” and it shows in everything they do.
I also thought it is time to call out to all the granges in our area. If you have event that you would like published in the Town Crier, please give me a call. With summer being right around the corner, I want to give everyone a chance to have their information published in our local newspaper. If you have an event you would like put in the Town Crier, please feel free to give me a call at (360) 785-4193. No event is too big or too small. It will give your organization the opportunity to highlight what is going on and the needs of our community. There is no cost to have your information published. We are here to serve the community and I am always excited to get more information out to those of us living in the area.
On Thursday, the Winlock Olequa Senior Center is having their Pinochle and Bingo day at noon. On Friday, they will be celebrating their birthday for the month, along with their commodities program. On Sunday, it’s time for the wonderful potato bar. Please come out and check out the Winlock Olequa Senior Center activities.
