Special to the Reporter

How ‘bout those Rangers? Our own Jimmy McKinney and his wife got to go the final game of the series and said it was the most amazing sporting event he has ever attended.

Don’t forget to come in costume this Friday, Oct. 29, and bring your carved, painted or decorated pumpkin. We will be having green slime punch and some classic Halloween music to enjoy as you strut around in your costume. Judging will take place at 11:30 a.m. and prizes will be awarded for best costume and best pumpkin.

It’s finally here. Cow Patty Bingo is this Saturday, as well as the bake sale, cake/prize walk and quilt raffle. It all starts at 3 a.m. here in the center parking lot. We will be handing out candy to all the little trick-or-treaters during Project Safe Treat as well.

That dreaded time is coming again, the time when we have to turn our clocks back. Set your clocks back next Saturday night, Nov. 6, or you will find yourself an hour early for everything on Sunday. In the meantime, try to enjoy the little daylight we have left.

Calling all chess players. We have at least a couple of chess tables going every Monday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to… whenever. If you want to play, just drop in.

Tai Chi class is still going and there are a few openings left. Please come and try it on Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. The cost is $10 per class.

Our next Sam Moon trip will be on Saturday, Nov. 13. We will leave the center at 9 a.m. and plan to eat lunch nearby.

Sam Moon has purses, costume jewelry, wallets, wigs and hairpieces, luggage, etc. at wholesale prices. Start making your Christmas list and join us.
