The Duncan Senior Citizens Center is staying busy in the month of November.

The center is holding weekly activities for all those in the Duncan community who are 55 years of age and older.

“These events are a great way for the senior citizens to socialize,” Shufeldt said. “It is also a great thing to give these people something to do during the day.”

Each Monday and Tuesday starting at 8:30 a.m. the center will have a ceramics class. Following the ceramics class, at 9 a.m., will be an aerobics class on Monday for those looking to stay in shape and a weaving class on Tuesdays.

Beginning at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the center will host a quilting class.

Along with the quilting class, the Stitching Memories Quilt Guild will meet at 6 p.m. Nov. 16, at the center.

Duncan Regional Hospital Home Care will give blood pressure and blood sugar checks from 10 a.m. to noon, Nov. 18.

“These blood pressure and blood sugar checks are a great thing for these people to get taken care of,” Shufeldt said.

“It is important that they know about their health and this is just one way we can help them with that.”

The annual Thanksgiving potluck luncheon will be Nov. 18. A ham and turkey will be furnished by the senior citizens center for the meal. Those attending are asked to bring a vegetable, salad, dessert or other food to complete the feast.

Shufeldt said that she hopes to have a good turnout for this year’s meal.

“This meal is just a time for us to share with friends and family and express our gratitude for all of our blessings,” Shufeldt said.

Due to low attendance, and a financial crunch the senior citizens center has decided to hold one potluck each month. The potluck luncheon will be the third Wednesday of each month.
