Special to the Reporter
The February/March calendars will be coming out soon and we are making some changes. Exercise will be moving to 10:15 a.m. to make room for a Bible study at 11 a.m. on Monday and Thursday every week. Bunco will be on the second and fourth Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. and scrapbooking will be on the first and third Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We would like to take a group to see the production of Greater Tuna at the Granbury Opera one Saturday in March. Please call or come by to sign-up. Keep reading the center article for further details.
We will have a presentation by Rami Nadir* from the Nucardio Heart Center on a new procedure for heart patients who are not good candidates for surgery. He will be speaking here on Wednesday, Jan. 19, at 11:30 a.m. The procedure is called ECP or External Counterpulsation. For more information you can also visit his website at nucardioheart.com.
*Last week we mistakenly referred to him as a medical doctor and he is not.
The AARP free tax service will be at the center again this year every Friday in February. Please call Sandy at the center to schedule your appointment.
Don’t forget our bluegrass and gospel evenings on the third Tuesday every month. The music starts at 6 p.m. and the potluck dinner is at 7 p.m. Bring your favorite dish and your acoustic instrument, if you play, and come on down.
The Dinosaur Valley Extension Education Club’s monthly speakers will be giving a brief talk at the center each Thursday around 11:30 p.m. The March speaker will be Donna Hagar from the Somervell County Master Gardeners Association.

Our condolences go out to the friends and family of Bessie Peek. Remembering, also, all our folks who have been sick or in the hospital. Just know that you are missed.
If you know someone who’s had an extended illness or been in the hospital or just not getting around so well anymore, we would love to come evaluate them for homebound meals. There is no charge for the meals, but we do suggest donations. Call the center and ask for Jan.
