For more information or to register, call 336-753-6230.
– Bingo ó 1 p.m., Oct. 8. MP Room B. Free. The quarterly Bingo game offers prizes and refreshments. Due to the sponsorship by Inspirations, there is no fee for Bingo this quarter. Open to adults 55 and older and exceptions under the general participation policy.
– Buddy System Training ó 1 p.m., Oct. 12, Multi-purpose Room B. Senior Services is hoping to start a new program and we need your help. We would like to start a program where we match up volunteers with people who are coming to the center for the first time. Many new participants are uncomfortable attending an event because they may not know anyone. We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to meet those “newcomers” at Senior Services for their first event, and help them learn the ropes – introduce them to people, sit with them, etc. If you would be interested in being a Buddy, please attend this training session. If you are interested but cannot attend this session, please call and set up a time for an individual training session.
– Town Hall Meeting: “Who ya gonna call?” ó 10:30 a.m . Oct. 14, Multi-purpose Room B. Panel – Beth Dirks, Davie County Manager, Representative from Mocksville Town Hall, Robert McNath, DOT. Do you know who to call to report a dead animal in the road? What about to report a road sign being down? The panel will answer some of the most frequently asked questions about who does what in the county, and then answer your questions as well. These meetings are open to adults of all ages. No children please.
– Chair volley ball ó Friday, Oct. 16, 1 p.m., Exercise Room. Cost – free
