Hilltowns Senior News for Thursday, April 17, 2014
Our April 12, meeting of the Hilltowns Seniors was packed, as we had to make room for more.
They must of heard of the great time we were going to have.
We started off by singing happy-birthday to Elsie Turon; she will be glad when this birthday is over. We also sang to Claudia Nedesky, Fred Wilms and Jim Croote. Then we sang happy-anniversary to Dave and Claudia Nedesky. Dave missed the first singing, so we had to do it again. A get-well card was sent to Gladys Bailey.
The trip to Corning Glass was discussed with everyone having a good time. Some of the girls made pendants and showed off their finished product. Everyone agreed that the blowing glass demonstration was their favorite. It was amazing to see a beautiful bowl made in fifteen minutes.
The only disappointment was that a lot of the dishes and ornaments they had for sale were from China.
Our next trips to the Glen House and The Beaches are filling up nicely.
We are still looking for someone to do the anniversary dinner. Also, the June meeting needs a kitchen committee.
It was announced that 14 people from our organization attended the Senior Expo in Albany. They found it very interesting and came away with some new ideas and a full stomach.
Our entertainment was the arrival of the Easter Bunny with a basket filled with goodies. Thank you, Jessica for helping us out. Jessica is a student from Berne-Knox-Westerlo that volunteers for parties for kids of all ages.
Also, we read a poem about baseball and sang, “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”, followed by an egg tossing contest won by Ruth Snyder. Come to find out, Ruthie played softball for Schoharie High School.
Don’t forget the NEAT dinner April 21.
I wondered why the Frisbee was getting bigger and then it hit me!
