Hilltowns Senior News for Friday, November 1, 2013
Can you believe it’s almost turkey time? Our Thanksgiving party will be on Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Berne Reformed Church. The cost is $6. Please let Shirley Slingerland know if you will be coming, if you have not already signed up. Also, please bring a food item for the food pantries and a small gift for the Christmas baskets for seniors.
There will be a sign up for the Christmas party at the Thanksgiving party. The cost will also be $6. The Christmas party will be held at the Hilltowns Senior Center on Saturday, Dec. 14. It will be a catered affair.
Our shopping van will be available on Wednesday, Nov. 13, for stops at Wal-Mart and Crossgates and on Wednesday, Nov. 27 with stops at Wal-Mart and Colonie Center. Think Christmas gifts!
On Tuesday, Nov. 26, we will be going to the Troy Hilton for a great Christmas show and dinner. The price of $50 includes everything. The van can only hold 14 people, but you can follow the van if you are taking your own car. We will be leaving from the Seniors Center at 10:30 a.m. I will need your money at the Thanksgiving party or you can mail it to me. Please remember that once reservations are made you must pay. So far 11 people have signed up for the van. Call me at 861-8960 if you have any questions or to make a reservation.
Please remember to get out and vote on Nov. 5.
Thanks for all of your support Seniors! A Happy Thanksgiving and a Happy Hanukkah to all.
