POLSON — Time to begin the “Rites of Spring,” like digging out your umbrella and rain gear, if you can remember where you put them.

April showers bring May flowers, as the old saying goes. I say April showers bring more showers, and if it lets up enough to plant your garden, you should.

Come in and see our new carpet at the Polson Senior Center. This new heavy traffic variety will last longer and be easier to maintain. Most of the recent upgrades and repairs have come from the estates of deceased members of the Polson Senior Citizens. We are grateful for their generosity and  thankful for your continuing  support.  

Free tax filing assistance is available on Mondays or Thursdays from now until April 13. Come in or call for an appointment and pick up a filing information packet.


Some members are interested in a regularly scheduled “board game night” in which a number of games may be offered, such as scrabble, cribbage, Yahtzee, Uno, Chinese checkers, etc. There would be separate tables for separate games. If interested in an evening of board games, leave your contact information at the center.
