KIM’S KORNER NOV. 2018
BURRR It is cold outside. My! My! We went straight from hot to cold. It is that time of year where we try to stay warm and inside – at least for me and probably for some of you too. Fortunately, there are many programs in Shelby County and at Shelby Senior Services where you can help in this weather! Shelby County is great at coming together and helping people to get what they need.
Here at Shelby Senior Services, we have many opportunities to come together and keep warm. During November, when we are thinking about Thanksgiving and all that we are thankful for, I think about all the people that may need a little helping hand. We try to make sure that seniors have food; we offer congregate meals at the Shelbyville Horizon Center five days a week, and one day a week at the centers in Waldron, Morristown and Fairland. We also deliver food to people 60+ who are shut-ins every other week. We also have our Senior Food Pantry open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10-12 so that seniors can come in and get healthier food options. In November we are having our Holiday Bazaar on November 17 and the Shelby County Council on Aging is having soup available as a fundraiser for them. So there will be many soups to choose from and lots of goodies to be had that day also.
There are many other opportunities for people 60+ to come in and have a meal, visit and participate in one of the groups that meet at Shelby Senior Services during the month. Many of these things are made possible by the generosity of our volunteers, Seniors and the staff of Shelby Senior Services. The coffee is always hot! Please come in and see what is going on any day of the week. We welcome you and welcome your ideas.
