SENIOR CITIZEN NEWS

Congratulations to Laura McComas from Seaman who won our door prize during the Adams County Fair.

August is right around the corner. This has been a rather interesting summer weather-wise. August normally is the hottest month of the year so remember to try to stay in the shade during the hot hours as much as possible and stay hydrated. We all tend to grumble about the weather but bear in mind, winter is just around the corner and we will be wishing for warmer weather again.

If you do have to be outside, wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing and don’t over-do your chores or activities. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke can happen to anyone but the elderly can be more susceptible. One way to beat the heat is to come in to the Senior Center and “chill” with us. We have a big screen TV, play cards on Thursdays, there are puzzles to work, Gentle Chair Yoga classes and Tai-Chi classes to take, or just come in to relax in the cool air. We always welcome anyone to stop by and visit and offer suggestions on how we can serve you. Call or stop by to find out what activities are going on that may interest you. We hope to see you soon.

The West Union Senior Club will try one more dinner/meeting on Aug. 14. They are hoping more people will show an interest in keeping this Club active with participation and possibly taking the opportunity to hold an “office” position. If not, this Club will disband. The North Adams Club has already disbanded and it will be a shame to lose the West Union Club as well. Please show your desire to have one day a month devoted to having some fun, enjoying the fellowship of others, fixing a dish or treat to share with others, and help to keep this club active.

The Summer Cooling Program continues through Aug. 31. ABCAP is still making appointments for the summer cooling program. This program can provide assistance to qualified individuals on your electric bill. If you would like to make an appointment or if you have any questions, please call ABCAP in Winchester at 1-800-233-7891.

HEAP (Home Energy Assistance Program) is now a year-round program. Many of you will begin receiving your State applications for the 2015-2016 season. This federally funded program is designed to help eligible Ohioans off-set some of the cost of home heating this winter. Here at the Senior Center our emphasis is placed on reaching the elderly, 60+, home bound and/or disabled. We will receive applications soon and our Out-Reach Aide may be able to assist you with applying for State Assistance Only. For more information call Teresa at 544-3979. Please note that you must call to set up an appointment.

The Adams County Senior Citizens are continuing their fund raising with products from Rada Cutlery, an American made cutlery. We have catalogs at our office for you to look through at your convenience. We appreciate all those who have supported us in the past and ask for your help to support us for a wonderful future.

Random Acts of Kindness- This week’s suggestion: Be a genuine Person. Make an effort to be a genuine person. When you say you will do something, do it. When you ask someone how they are doing, wait for them to answer and really listen to them.

Just a Thought: “There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” ~Edith Wharton (1862-1937) Novelist
