Kim’s Korner Feb 2018
“Baby it’s cold outside” is an understatement so far this year. As I try to stay warm I am reminded of some important hints to keep in mind — always bundle up and use layers to help keep you warm. In the bitter cold it is easy to get a deep down “in your bones” chill. So try to stay in and warm this winter. If you feel that you need to get out, make sure that you have all body parts covered. Make sure you cover your face with a scarf so that you protect your lungs in the bitter cold. It doesn’t take long to get frostbite! You want to wear layers whether you are at home or coming to the Horizon Center. Also remember to watch Channels 6 and 13, listen to WSVX, or look on Facebook for delays and closures for Shelby Senior Center and the Horizon Center. For the Morristown, Waldron and Fairland Centers please follow the delays and closures of the respective schools.
When you are cooped up in your house in the winter, sometimes wintertime blues or depression can creep in. The Horizon Center is here to help with this. We have many activities available to be a part of and you can choose which ones speak to you and your heart. You can come in and have a cup of coffee and visit if that is what your heart desires. Here at the center you can have a warm meal, participate in a card game or move around a little bit with line dancing. There is something for everyone. We are open to new ideas also. If you need to get out and need a ride, make sure that you call ShelbyGo and have them bring you to the Horizon Center. We also have Waldron, Morristown and Fairland Centers available once a week so you can stay in your community with people you know and get involved also. We also offer a Friendly Visitor if you are in need of someone to help you with the blues. They can come to your house to visit or can offer a phone call to you.
We look forward to serving you in 2018. Please feel free to contact Shelby Senior Services at 317-398-0127, www.shelbyseniorservices.org or on Facebook.
