Marion Kiwanis

President Sharon Bailey opened the regular meeting of Kiwanis on Aug. 28. She announced that Indiana Kiwanis Governor Judd Roush will be visiting the clubs in the area by hosting a meeting at The Mill in Marion on Sept. 4 at 5 p.m. He will be asking the group to share fundraising and service activities during the past year.

The Community Collection Can was passed to benefit the Boys and Girls Club. Karen Miller announced the Christmas parade will be held on Dec. 7 this year. Bailey announced that the Key Club has a really good start this school year. She has shared the sign-up sheet for the 1812 booth and will urge them to participate.

The officer installation will be held during a regular Kiwanis meeting on Sept. 25. We urge all members to attend. Steve Sharon introduced Mike Crouch to speak to the group at the meeting. Mike is always inspirational and asked each of us if we wanted to be so-so, pretty good, good or elite in everything that we do and how we could strive to be better as a spouse, employee, club member or any endeavor that we take on.

Hostess House Euchre Club

The club met on Aug. 26 at the Hostess House.

A rainy and cloudy day, it was perfect to be inside playing cards. To some of us, any kind of weather is a good day to play cards. With all the practice, we should all be experts.

Unfortunately, the cards are fickle, and practice doesn’t always mean perfect.

It was a fun day with lots of visiting and maybe a little gossip. Laughter and snacks made it a sunny day inside. A special day for me, it’s my daughters birthday.

Winner for high: Nellie Leech; most lones: Judy Pernod.

The next game is Sept. 23 at the Hostess House.

The Wyndmoor of Marion

The Wyndmoor of Marion provides services and amenities to help our residents achieve their highest quality of life in a comforting and caring home. We provide several activities that are geared toward improving and motivating our residents’ quality of life.

Residents begin their mornings with exercise, senior sneakers and get up and go to help with strength and coordination. This week our residents enjoyed playing games such as Scrabble, Slap Jax, corn hole and card games.

Our residents benefit from two weekly outings. Monday, we traveled to Dollar Tree for shopping, and Friday we traveled to Peru to Pizza My Way. Arts and crafts are also offered weekly. This week residents made lighthouses. Skip Bo, match game and fireside reminiscing are some activities centered around memorization to help maintain cognition.

Coffee and chit chat, grandma’s kitchen, and conversation are social events to help residents build relationships with other residents. This week we welcomed Janice and Paul White, who enjoy singing with residents.

Bible study, Bible trivia and church service are offered for our spiritual residents. Finally, everyone’s favorite activity is bingo. This week our winners included Bill F., Norma G., Bea S. and Berneda P.
