POLSON — We Montanans understand that winter ends on April 15, so here is a reminder that tax filing assistance is available on Mondays or Thursdays from now until then. Call for an appointment. Bring your paper work and a copy of last year’s tax forms. No Fees. Donations always welcome.

St. Valentine’s Day is the day to spoil your sweetheart. Buy a box of See’s Candy, on sale now. Oh, about that comment I made last week about buying my wife a vacuum cleaner as a gift? She showed me how to plug the thing in and turn it on. I’ve been using it. Often. Always. This year it is her turn to vacuum. Maybe.

We recently purchased Super-0ne grocery bags (the green ones). These bags are used for Commodity Food Distributions. Recycle green bags at the Senior Center. 

Sign up for Tai Ji Quan - Moving for Better Balance Classes, taught by Dixie Bisson. Slow and easy exercises to improve flexibility, strength, and mobility. 


Bowling: fun league, pay by the day non-sanctioned, no-tap, Tuesdays, 1 p.m. weekly

Bingo: regular bingo Fridays, 7 p.m. “Playing Card” bingo first Wednesday and third Thursday of each month - help wanted 

Exercise: low impact  M- W- F, 10:30 –11:30 a.m.

Pinochle: eat lunch at the center before cards Thursdays, 12:15– 3 p.m. (or later if you wish). We coach new players, or those who have not played in years. Card playing keeps my hands flexible. Losing tests my patience. All good hands come to those who wait. I have waited long enough. Last week I lost two out of three games. That is an improvement from the week before.
