Hello everyone! Surprise! Last week, folks were swimming, wearing shades and shorts, and having picnics. This morning it’s cold, and we need heavy coats, fire and soup. Oh well, it’s not our call. It’s the Master’s hand at work. Isn’t our God so very amazing? It’s nice and warm here at the center. Come join us for warmth, friends, nice warm food and much more. Come join in all our fun. No appointments necessary, just come on over!

Wednesday, April 11, we will head over for Senior Games in Fayetteville and we are praying for our participants. This is a plus for our North Carolina Seniors. Engage at every age. Stay busy!

We are working on our volunteer program here at Garland Senior Center. We will probably be showing our appreciation for our volunteers April 27. We do appreciate our volunteers. Our Older Americans Month is on May 24. Please plan to join us for a fun filled day. Everything is free. We are so excited! Foot care folks will be here on April 23 around 10 a.m. Keep that date and bring insurance and/or Medicaid/Medicare information. May 25 is the fishing event for our Garland Senior Center participants. Everybody who is interested in participating in our fishing event must register before May 20. We thank you all for your participation. Lots of things going on here at the center, please take part.

Linda Hill and Mary Smith will be presenting “Positive Approaches to Life” on April 26 at 10:30 a.m. This is to help people with low self-esteem and anybody who would like to learn how to always see the brighter side of things. Join us for some good tips.

Josephine McKoy is a part-time employee here at the center along with being a vigilant volunteer, she wears many hats. Josie is here every day and is very, very dependable. She’s very passionate and treats all participants as family.

Words of wisdom: Wisdom can only be gained through humility; for the arrogant have no way or desire for it. Wisdom is the helmet that protects us from the flowers of temptation. Wisdom may be gained at any age but trials of life teach the most enduring lessons. As always, I want to encourage all my readers to Live, Laugh and Love!
