OTHG 08/04/22

Fried chicken, corn on the cob, mac and cheese, coleslaw, mixed fruit jello, and ham and Navy beans.

The new BINGO game was a success.
ANNOUNCEMENTS OTHG 08/04/2022

• As of August 2nd the Morning Coffee Club began. These will be every Tuesday starting at 8:30. Jannett, do you have anything to announce here? 

• For those days when it’s too hot to be outside, pick up DVDs at the library and stay inside where it is cool.

• Hat Day next week and Shirt Day on the eleventh. (Please wear a shirt on other days also 😁)  On the 28th Bring a Friend and you and they Eat For Free. Yes we are trying to increase membership …  so the friend has to be a qualifying senior. 

• Speaking of shirts … we need to get your orders in because we will place the order this week.

• When you visit our website, please leave a comment if it’s nothing more than, “Hey, GANG” or “Wha’s up?” 

• Merle, do you have an announcement about bingo? We have a new BINGO game.

• Joke:. A retired man now volunteers to entertain patients in assisted living homes and hospitals. He visited one hospital in Brooklyn and brought along his portable keyboard.
After telling jokes and singing songs at patients’ bedsides, he said farewell and, “I hope you get better.” One elderly gentleman replied, “I hope you get better, too.”

• Prayer:.  Be present at our table Lord. Be here and everywhere adored. These favors bless and grant that we may feast in fellowship with thee. Amen

Let’s eat. Any who need assistance go first.
Door prize went to Pat R.

30 for dinner

Tuesday Coffee 08/02/22

August 2nd was the kick off of a Tuesdays morning coffee group. It is scheduled to start at eight thirty and last as long as people want to stay.

This, the first gathering, was attended by only two people and they are board members.

Perhaps we need to better define the purpose of the group to attract more people. And we will continue to advertise it through social media.

We are open to suggestions.

••••••••••••

We had our very first FIRST FRIDAY POTLUCK AND GAME NIGHT on July 1. We ate some good food and had lots of laughs.

••••••••••••

We started the month off with the traditional fried chicken and fixings on our first Thursday meeting of the month..

••••••••••••

The nice red, white, and blue table
decorations were courtesy of the folks at
Our Village, who share the
building with us.

We all had a good Independence Day with no loss of fingers.

••••••••••••

We had a reporter from the Independent newspaper interviewing us Over The Hillers about the club. And as a surprise treat, she played some music on the piano for us.

••••••••••••

Beef stew, red beans and rice, salad, fruit and fresh baked biscuits. Yum!

••••••••••••

On July 18th OVER THE HILL GANG officially turned 24. We celebrated on Thursday 21st with cake and ice cream.
Baked potatoes with lots of toppings
Cinnamon Apple slices and lettuce salad
And, of course, some pinto beans.

••••••••••••

On July 27th Tom and Ella met with the city manager to discuss the use of the building and in preparation for the new yearly contract which takes effect on September first. 

••••••••••••

We also had plenty of games

Do you ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes at the Gang’s building?

Then there is clean up. Doing dishes wash, dry/drain, and put away. Wash or wipe down tables and counter tops. Begin setting up trays and silverware for next week. Give bathrooms a once over. Gather trash and take out to garbage cans.

During the week there is shopping for food, supplies, and prizes.

Your board stays in constant (daily / multiple times a day) touch by phone, email, and text messaging to make sure that we are on the same page and pulling in the same direction.

If you are of a mind to pitch in and help, it’d be appreciated.
