SENIOR CENTER UPDATE: 04/01/22

Hello members and friends!

I’d like to share a fitting poem I received from
member, Donna Cline:

Planting Your Spring Garden

For THE GARDEN of YOUR DAILY LIVING

Plant Three Rows of Peas
1. Peace of Mind
2. Peace of Heart
3. Peace of Soul

Plant Four Rows of Squash
1. Squash Gossip
2. Squash Indifference
3. Squash Grumbling
4. Squash Selfishness

Plant Four Rows of Lettuce
1. Lettuce be Faithful
2. Lettuce be Kind
3. Lettuce be Patient
4. Lettuce Really Love One Another

No Garden is Complete without Turnips
1. Turnip for Meetings
2. Turnip for Service
3. Turnip to Help One Another

To Conclude Our Garden, We Must Have Thyme
1. Thyme for Each Other
2. Thyme for Family
3. Thyme for Friends

Water Freely with Patience and Cultivate with Love.

 

We’re starting to see glimpses of nicer weather and I know many of us are ready to get out and get active once again.

We’re seeing new and old faces at the senior center and it’s been such a joy and so refreshing! If you haven’t made it in yet, please stop by. We’d love to see you! Please look over the April calendar. There’s a number of great activities to take advantage of.

Looking forward to seeing you! Chenoa

 

To all my volunteers: Thank you so much for all you do for me and the Senior Center! I’m thankful for each one of you!

In continuing with our Volunteer Incentive Program, for the month of March, Jo Wright won the $25 first place gift card and Judy Huffman won the $10 second place gift card. Stop by the center and collect your prize! Consider being a senior center volunteer! There are a variety of ways you can volunteer at the senior center. Whether it’s decorating, cooking, leading or helping with an activity, working rentals, etc., it’s all so helpful and rewarding.

About Us

In 1996, German Township Trustees and the Municipality of Germantown worked together to build a senior center. Nelda and Bob Judy donated the property and a levy was passed.
The grand opening of the center was on April 15, 2000. Today the center continues to be a vital connection between the seniors and their community.

Our Mission

We advocate the well-being and dignity of all seniors by providing health, educational and recreational programs to assist them to lead independent and useful lives.
Programs:

Health – Attend health seminars, health fairs, health screenings, and flu shot clinics. We also provide a Tues/Thurs congregate lunch program.

Educational – Attend classes or surf the internet in our computer lab. Listen to informational speakers on a myriad of topics.

Recreational – We have Euchre, Bridge, Bingo, Mah Jongg, Yoga, Chair Volleyball, Bible Study, specialty events, trips, outings for shopping and dining, theater, and museums. We also have a bus. We have many volunteer opportunities. The center is available for limited rentals as well.

Stormwater Education & Outreach

Stormwater Education & Outreach

Storm water runoff is...any water that is not soaked into the ground after a rain storm.

Consequently, storm water runoff can pick up pollutants while flowing into local streams and rivers. The Storm Water Management Program (SWMP), launched in 2003, is ODOT\'s inter-agency effort to control pollutants in storm water discharge.

 How you care for your lawn can affect your local waterways. Runoff, yard clippings, chemicals, where and what you plant are just some of the components that can create stormwater pollution.

Go to https://youtu.be/b4r88u8euYU for healthy lawn care practices including pollution prevention.

For more ways to prevent stormwater pollution from your lawn, refer to: What You Can Do in Your Yard article below provided by the EPA.

Thank You for doing your part.
