ST. IGNATIUS — Come have fun and get a big start on the holiday cheer at the St. Ignatius Christmas Carnival, Dec. 2 at the high school. At 5:30 p.m. we will have the lighting of the Christmas Tree with chili, hot drinks and cookies served at the Good Old Days Pavilion. There will be live reindeer, the Parade of Lights line up and caroling. Come join the fun.

If you need Christmas goodies, come see us on Dec. 8; we will have a Bake and Craft Sale at the Senior Center from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The 4-H Bazaar will take place on Dec. 9, between 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the St. Ignatius High School Gym. Come and see what goodies we have. Any donations are welcome.

The St. Ignatius Senior Center is collecting coats, scarves, mittens/gloves and socks for elementary and middle school kids. We are accepting new and slightly used items. Help us keep kids warm during the winter.

I am sending out a plea for the Mission Valley Food Pantry. We need plastic grocery bags, empty boxes that will hold up to 30 pounds, dozen egg cartons and if you have four hours of time on Tuesdays and Fridays, we are in the need of volunteers to help clients from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You are welcome to come to the Pantry at 203 Blaine and check things out on the days we are open.

We invite everyone to come and enjoy one of our meals or call for a take-out. Call 406-745-4462 by 10 a.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays and by 2 p.m. on Wednesdays. Times of meals are listed below. Menus for the month are available in the entryway of the center.


Friday, Dec. 1: noon - homemade biscuits, gravy with sausage, fruit, dessert

Tuesday, Dec. 5: noon – lasagna, garlic bread, green salad, corn; cookie

Wednesday, Dec. 6: 5:30 - roast beef, carrots and potatoes, salad, dessert

Friday, Dec. 8: noon - chicken dinner, zucchini fries, salad, birthday cake

Tuesday, Dec. 12: noon - pulled pork sandwiches, coleslaw, apple dessert

If you could have some type of activity that would help with the winter blues, call us with your suggestion and we will see what can be done here at the center. If you would like a craft night or afternoon, maybe a movie night, coffee hour during the day, call us and help us put this together.  

We invite you to become a member of the Senior Citizen Center for a fee of $10 a year. You can join us at any age.

The Foot Hills Club meets the second and fourth Wednesday at 1 p.m. for snacks and cards. Gently Yoga is held on Wednesdays at 1 to 2:15 p.m. If you are interested, call Bonnie Kiser at 406-253-0177. Her rates are five sessions for $60.

We have walkers, a commode, a shower chair, a wheelchair, a high-rise toilet seat, 4-prong canes, regular canes and a transfer bench to loan out as well as XXL Depends to be given out. No cost to the items that are loaned out.

Our St. Ignatius Senior Center is available for rent. If you are interested, call 406-745-4462 and leave a message.   We will call you back with the information you need.

If you need help with other areas of your life such as: transportation, respite, home health services, and other information. Call the friendly people at Lake County Council on Aging (LCCOA) in Ronan at 406-676-2367.
