I am late in extending our gratitude to the following folks for all of their help in making our first Evening of Elegance such a wonderful experience…
Thanks to Kelly Gurule for all of your support and advice in planning, executing the plan & donating dishes. Thanks to the wonderful plating and serving team of Michelle Gay, Diann Martinez, Lindsay Meredith, Zach Masterson, Tennie Masterson, and Tom Masterson.

Thank you Nadine Gurule, Cletus Rinebarger and Judy Wiescamp for help with setup, food prep and clean up and Monica Wolfe for being such a gracious hostess.

The Alamosa Senior Citizens are excited to offer a tour to the stunning area of Mackinac Island, Michigan. The trip runs from June 21st - 27th. Cost is $1,949 per person for a double and $2,449 for a single. A $500 deposit is required by March 15th. It’s been said that there are few jewels in the world like Mackinac (pronounced Mackinaw) Island. It’s a place where time stands still, tranquility fills the air and it seems as though you have left the worries of the real world behind. I think that sounds heavenly! Please call to sign up and to receive more detailed information!
Beginning Monday, March 5th at 10 a.m. Lyn Johnson will conduct a Tai Chi Class here at the Center. According to Harvard Health Publishing, Tai chi is often described as “meditation in motion,” but it might well be called “medication in motion.” There is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. And you can get started even if you aren’t in top shape or the best of health. Please call if you are interested in attending.
