Seniors start new year

The Mapleton, Chapman and Castle Hill Seniors started 2020 with a fun and enjoyable meeting on Monday Jan. 6.  

 

The seniors returned to the Mapleton Methodist Church for its twice-monthly potluck after holding its Christmas party at Governor’s Restaurant in Presque Isle.   At the Dec. 16 meeting, there was good food and a Christmas Yankee Swap led by member Terry Sandusky. All of the gifts were Christmas decorator items that could be displayed and used at Christmas.  

The first meeting of the year featured more good food and a rousing set of Bingo games.

Caroline Ballerstein reminds everyone over age 55, you are invited to attend and join the group.  It is a traditional potluck lunch, so bring something and enjoy the lunch prepared by very experienced cooks.  

The next meeting will be at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 20, at the Mapleton Methodist Church.
