Medina County Nutrition
and Transportation News
This article is being published for
the information of every Senior
Citizen throughout Medina County.
It's a message urging every Senior
Citizen to take advantage of all that
is being offered them through our
nutrition programs and other state
and federally funded projects.
The government, through the
Texas Department on Aging, has
designed this program solely for
the aging population of this coun-
try. It offers every Senior Citizen
the opportunity of getting away
from their homes and enables them
to visit with friends as well as make
new acquaintances. It offers a place
where they can participate in many
activities such as arts and crafts,
domino games, bingo, quilting and
exercise classes. More importantly,
it offers a good nutritional meal at
noon time five days each week,
Monday through Friday. It will
even provide transportation to and
from the Centers.
This is all solely for Seniors to
enjoy and there is no charge. We
do offer you the opportunity to give
a $1.50 contribution for the meal to
help defray expenses of preparing
Seniors, please remember that
this program is in no way charity.
You are given the opportunity to
make a contribution, therefore,
when you pay for something it is
We are presently serving ap-
proximately 325 meals daily
Wow! have we been busy. Residents
hav; indeed been working hard and also
enjoying all kinds of activity.
Wednesday was greenday as we cele-
brated SL Patrick's Day a little early. A
party in the afternoon found residents
enjoying Irish Bingo and wondering who
was going to win the Irish Sweepstakes.
Ortie Sanford had the winning ticket.
Following the party everyone enjoyed
Irish cupcakes and Shamrock shakes.
During the day the staff enjoyed a Lepre-
chaun hunt and Carolyn Lutz found the
St. Paul Lutheran Church women
helped residents celebrate their March
birthdays on Thursday. They brought
delicious homemade cakes as did Mrs.
Holzhaus (Margaret Tondre's sister) and
we all had a good time deciding which
throughout Medina County and
Lytle. We know that there are a
number of Senior Citizens in every
city in Medina County that should
join the 325 already being served.
We believe you would enjoy get-
ting away for a few hours to enjoy
the fellowship of others and to par-
ticipate in the fun that is being en-
joyed by those who are attending.
We feel that if you come one
time you will not miss another day
and we assure you that it will help
you in many ways.
Remember, it is your program,
we want you to take part in it and
to make every effort to tell a neigh-
bor or friend to join you at one of
the Centers near you.
We know that many of our Sen-
iors do not take a local paper and
will not read this article, so we ask
you to share it with your neighbor,
or tell them about the program and
what they are missing by not at-

pating in the nutrition program is to

dential. This is only for record pur-
poses and is a one-time request.

ideas that might help us to get this
message to every Senior Citizen in
Medina County, please call our of-
fice anytime between 8 am and 5
pm. Our number is (512) 426-2395,

nity to worship. Participating thus far this
month have been St. Paul Lutheran, First
Methodist, Church of Christ, First Bap-
tist, First Independent Baptist, St. John's

Residents have found they will not
have enough items for a big Easter sale on
March 23rd. We had so many orders to
fill that time just ran out. We do invite you
to come by and see the things we have.
These rabbits and eggs might just be what
you're looking for to complete your
Easter basket or centerpiece.
