ARLEE — Here it is the last month of 2023. We’ve enjoyed the bounties of Thanksgiving, the friends and families around the table the many stories of the past and, of course, always so much to be thankful for in our lives. Now we are on to preparing for Christmas, which includes, shopping, sending Christmas cards, baking pies and cookies to share, and hear and singing the many carols of Christmas. We will be decorating for Christmas and you are invited to help us. We ar ever so thankful for the many delicious meals that Dustin, Randy and Marti prepare in the senior kitchen. Pre-Thanksgiving dinner was absolutely the best. The many recipes they share make the tastiest surprises to our senses. We continue to invite you, your friends and family to share in our meals here at the center on Mondays and Wednesdays at noon and on the second and fourth Saturdays at 5 p.m. for a small cost of $4 or $5. Our tip jay is truly appreciated by our cooks. Please call 406-726-3213.

The month of November brought the demise of our hot water heater, so after Jerry and Cherie Garcelon researched, Drew Hendrickson got one and installed it at the center to our sanitation standards up to par. We thank the Tiensvolds for redecorating and reorganizing the layout of the center. The flowers in front have brightened our center summer and fall. It brings a new perspective to us as we enter for meals and friendship. We are blessed in all that our board members have to share with us and appreciate all that our local Food Bank and Commodities give to the community and us.

In November we shared our center with the veterans for their annual Veterans Day spaghetti meal and enjoyed visiting with those who have served our country. We continue to pray for peace not only in the world, but in our community and families.

We continue to have our monthly board meetings and if there is any subject you feel needs to be addressed, please contact us. We also rent out our building for use and have an agreement for you to sign. Arlee seniors welcome you to our center this December. 

Arlee Seniors Board of Trustees: Cherie Garcelon, Betty Shoemaker, Anne Stewart, Lillie Willison, Judy Miller, Patty Tiensvold, Marie Gillette, Gladys Brown and Jerry Garcelon

For meals, please call 406-726-3213 on the day of the meal by 9 a.m. Include your name, phone number and the number of meals you wish and whether you wish to dine in or take-out.
