Canajoharie Senior Citizens enjoy programs

Thursday, July 10, 2014 - Updated: 1:18 AM

CANAJOHARIE -- The Canajoharie Senior Citizens have enjoyed some excellent programs, presentations and visitors in the past few months. 

Sheriff Michael Amato presented a program on the history of the Montgomery County Jail. 

The seniors joined Arkell Hall residents May 16 when Senator Cecilla Tkaczyk discussed raising sheep and processing the wool, which she did on a spinning wheel for the crowd. 

Canajoharie Mayor Francis Avery provided an update on Canajoharie on May 30.

John Snyder, of the OFA, presented an informational talk on June 13 called "How Can I Drive Safer, Longer?", which stressed ways seniors can maintain their eyesight and keep cognizant of the effect of their medications, also pointing out that exercising and keeping in shape is important for driver safety.

A representative from Price Chopper Pharmacy spoke to the seniors on June 27, talking about available medications and home delivery options.

The winner of the mystery gift raffle, a fundraiser, was Joan Cimino. The seniors decided to wait until September to hold another raffle.

The seniors were fortunate to receive a donation from the Canajoharie-Palatine Community Chest, which will help fund a second bus trip this year. The seniors traveled June 17 to the Glen Falls House in Roundtop for a meal and program, "Impersonation of Elvis". A second bus trip is planned for September. Details will be announced soon.

Plans are being made for the annual summer picnic, which will be held Friday, Aug. 22, at Arkell Center.

Boxes and cards are still being sent to the servicemen and women oversees. Additional names and addresses are needed. Contact Emily at 922-8422 if you know servicemen or women who would enjoy them.

Mary Simpson, sunshine chairman, was commended for doing an excellent job sending cards to members.

On June 27, the seniors were pleased to welcome two new members. All seniors over 55 in the Canajoharie and Fort Plain central school districts are welcome to attend meetings, held two Fridays a month at Arkell Center. Meetings in July will take place July 11 and 25 at 1 p.m.

Call Dorothy Morrison for additional information.
