We are looking for some local people either in the Parsons area or from the mountain area that would be interested in providing entertainment for our monthly Outposts. Our Outposts are covered dish dinners beginning with some relevant readings then the entertainment for approximately 30 minutes before we do door prizes and have a delicious meal. If you sing, play an instrument, dance, or something else to entertain our seniors please call Linda Bonner, Activities director, at 304-478-2423. We would love to have you share your talent with us.
Also, if you would like to teach a class in knitting, crocheting, sewing, etc. we’d love to hear from you. We’ve had a request for someone to do a writing class for us.
Volunteering for a short time will help you and make our seniors happy. Please consider what you might do to help.
