Virus news, activities and more for seniors. What are seniors doing during their virus stay-at-home time?
Most senior-related events in the town of Lyons have been either cancelled or changed due to CODIV-19. Words to the wise: Don’t overreact, be prepared, and remain calm.
The Senior Center will serve lunch on December 20 and 27. Exercises are cancelled on December 24 and 28. The Walt Self Senior Center is open to residents on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve to make their own fun. Don’t sit home alone! Neighbors are serving a free “Fifth Monday Supper” at 5:30pm, on Monday, December 31st (not a potluck). Oskar Blues & Grill has changed its lunch date to Wednesday, January 8, at 11:30am, instead of January 1st.
Were you out enjoying the Holiday Season this past weekend? The weather was more mild than we have had in years. A steady crowd wandered the aisles of the Christmas Bazaar. Most people I talked to said they bought themselves a gift! Next came the many varieties of chili offered at the Lyons Community Church, and ditto on the thousands of cookies offered at The River Church cookie-and-cocoa booth in Sandstone Park. The parade favorite was the Alice in Wonderland float, that included many residents dressed up as Cheshire cats. What was your favorite? Did you bring your grandkids for the fireworks? I sat next to two other seniors, and we shouted out loud our “Ohhh’s” and “Ahhh’s” just like when we were kids.
