Welcome our 2019 King and Queen!

Congratulations to Whitefish Community Center’s 2019 Winter Carnival Sr. King and Queen! Jim and Sandi moved to Happy Valley in November 1999 after Jim was granted a job transfer from a California Safeway. Both continue to enjoy Montana’s changing seasons and variety of outdoor activities. Sandi worked as a legal assistant for Tom Tornow in Whitefish before taking early retirement at 62. It was then that she discovered Whitefish Community Center, where she was attracted by socialization, friendship and classes. Sandi visits the Center twice weekly for exercise sessions, after which you can find her sitting at the communal table drinking a cup of coffee and nibbling at a pastry. Jim currently

Meals on Wheels

As we look forward to 2019, we want to remind everyone that we are the Whitefish provider for Meals-on-Wheels, a program that provides home delivery of hot nutritious meals every weekday around noon. We also offer lunch in our Community Center dining room for those able to travel to our site. Costs to seniors for these meals are minimal, or voluntary for those on a tight budget. Please give some thought to folks you know that may be interested in our meals. Rather than eat alone at home, invite them to try lunch at the Center. If you know of someone who might benefit from home delivery, we can help you get that arranged. We would love to expand the number of folks who participate in our meal

Book sale!

Come take a look at our tables of books and find some treasures. Paperbacks will be three for $.50 and hardbacks will be three for $1. We have fiction, non-fiction, biographies, and more. Stock up for winter reading – spring and summer are a long way away! These specially priced books will be available all of January, but shop early for the best selection. We are not eliminating our used book sales, just need to start the New Year with a smaller inventory. For those who have donated books, we sincerely thank you. Our used book sales have been an income stream (though a small one) for years! We enjoy offering good reads at bargain prices. For those who have been purchasing our books all along

Quilters Support Seniors

Stumptown Quilt Society recently donated three dozen Christmas-theme placemats to Whitefish Community Center. They will be included in the home-delivered meal program “Meals on Wheels.” Stumptown Quilt members make quilted items every year to donate to charities throughout Flathead Valley. Meals on Wheels for Seniors is one of several programs coordinated through WCC. Volunteers deliver tasty, healthy meals to seniors’ homes, thus fostering the seniors’ independence. (For more information, call 406-862-4923.) Stumptown Quilters Society is open to anyone interested in quilting. Beginners are welcome. The group meets the second Saturday of each month at St. Peter’s Church, 211 Wisconsin Avenue

A new senior living apartment!

The Springs in Whitefish is planning an Independent Senior Living apartment in the vicinity of their current Assisted Care and Memory Care facility, located at 1001 River Lakes Parkway. If you or someone you know would be interested, call Marvin Parker at 863-2682. He can provide information he has collected concerning the project.

It’s a Christmas Dinner, and you’re invited!

On Thursday, December 20, we would love to have you join us for our annual Christmas dinner! We serve at 11:30 am, so plan to arrive around 11:15. The menu, as scheduled, is Yuletide Pot Roast, mashed potatoes and gravy, creamed peas and carrots, dinner roll, and pecan pie bars. A full house of members, friends, and volunteers would be the best way to enjoy our holiday dinner. To make your reservation, call 862-4923. Just leave a message if Kathy or Kim are not available.
