Adams County Senior Citizens News

Please be advised that person(s) unknown have been making prank phone calls to local citizens and using our agency name and telephone number. If you receive a phone call from our agency after 4 p.m., even if your caller I.D. shows our agency’s name and number, it is not from us. Please call local law enforcement to report the call as they are aware of the situation. Thank you.

We are still having technical issues with our telephone system. We are working to rectify this matter as soon as possible but in the mean-time, if you are unable to get through, please keep trying to reach us. We are in office Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m.

A huge thank you to everyone who ordered flowers during our fund raiser for our agency’s Tai Chi instructor, Teresa Carr, so she may continue her training and education to bring more to her dedicated participants.

We are continuing our raffle for a set of geese pillows, donated by Judy Shipley that are perfect for decorating your home during spring and summer. Tickets are 2/$1. The drawing will be held on April 1.

We are asking for volunteers to help organize the “All-County Senior Citizens Day” in May. Various duties and skills are needed to make this day a success. On March 2 at 2 p.m. we will have a question/answer session for anyone interested in participating in making the day a memorable event.

Do you have a unique talent or skill and would like to be entertainment for the All County Senior Day event on May 17? We have a lot of singers and musical talent lined up but we would like to invite those individuals who may like to show our seniors something that may spark an interest or possibly something that they could do as a hobby. Anyone interested in participating, please contact us at 544-3979.

We have State HEAP applications for the 2015-2016 winter season at the Senior Center. We have an aide to assist any senior 60+ will filling out their State HEAP application for State assistance only; however, this is on a very limited basis. Please call Teresa at the Senior Center at 544-3979 to schedule an appointment. Thank you.

Need to laugh a little? Did you know that the average four-year-old laughs up to 400 times per day but as adults we’re lucky to crank out about 15 laughs a day? What do kids know that we have forgotten? Research shows that there are numerous health benefits to humor and laughter. Here’s a few things laughter can do for us:

-boosts the immune system and releases natural painkillers

-helps respiratory/cardio system

-relieves anxiety, stress, tension, and eases the grieving process.

Those who laugh together create stronger relationships and everyone knows it’s more fun to share a funny moment with someone than it is to laugh alone. Remember, laughter is not just for kids, it’s good for all of us.

Just a Thought: “It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” ~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
