Join the seniors club
Are you 55 or older? This is a magic number! If you are 55 or older, you can:
• Join the fun-loving Sugarloaf Seniors Club and get to go on a few trips, or get out to eat at a variety of restaurants.
• Ride the free bus which runs this Friday, May 27 to Glens Falls for a day of shopping or appointments. For bus seats, call Laura at 623-9281 by Wednesday and give her directions to your home. To join the Seniors Club, call Norma at 623-9245.
• Receive discounts and special privileges at various stores and institutions.
The age of 55 also means you're young enough to volunteer for hometown projects and to get to meet many of your neighbors.
On a personal note
Cliff Dureau of Sky High Road and Geri Howe of Warrensburg have recently returned from a weekend trip to Long Island. They attended the 40th anniversary party held for Geri's daughter, Patti, and Les Marro, and also the celebration of grandson Ryan Howe's 8th birthday. Both Cliff and Geri visited many family members while in the Long Island area.
Charlotte Wood of Rte. 28 recently enjoyed a family dinner with her grandson and family, Donnie and Sue Stone and their children.
The season's first little hummingbird was seen fluttering around looking for a feeder on Thursday, May 5. He was a bit early, so we scurried to find a feeder and mix up some sugar and water, but he had flown off, still looking for a place to eat.

So please let them know where to go and the best time to stop by or call. To do so, call 623-9014 or 623-2062.
