Three August birthday girls attend Senior Center dinner

Andersons celebrate 59th wedding anniversary
The birthday dinner girls for August were Elaine Malensek, Betty Sjostrom and Rachel Parker. The hostess and hostess helpers were AnnaBelle Rogers, Vi Lazz and Kathy Koch. Vi provided a lovely centerpiece for the guests’ table of sunflowers and a door prize for the lucky winner, Betty Sjostrom. AnnaBelle appreciated her friends’ help.
A happy 59th wedding anniversary greeting was given to Mr. and Mrs. Ardell Anderson on this day as well: Aug. 16, 2017.
The First Interstate Bank volunteer who helped serve the meal to our patrons was Violet Hankel. The bank donates the cost of the birthday meal ingredients for the Hardin and Lodge Grass Centers each month. Their contribution is much appreciated and is an important part of the Council on Aging’s meal program. As well, it is a way to pay tribute to our elders in the communities.
A 50-50 drawing was held and Karen Johnston was the winner. She donated the $31.50 back to the Seniors Association.
Richard and Kris Clausen were awarded the sealed bid for the barbecue grill fundraiser of the Association’s on Aug. 16.
The birthday cake was donated by Shirley and Cliff Groombridge and was made and decorated with sunflower yellow at Reese & Ray’s IGA bakery in Hardin.
The musicians Jerry Metcalf and Jessy Espinoza provided good music to listen to during dinner. We appreciate these guys helping to make the day special.
The Seniors Association has donated to the Council on Aging meals and transportation programs this month. Their ongoing fundraisers and support for our Senior Center are an integral part of us being here for our seniors in Hardin.
Our dear friend Vicki Lautt passed away recently. She had lived in Hardin, raising her children here with husband Gilbert. She worked for many years at First Interstate Bank. Vicki was a beautiful lady and cared for everyone. Our sincere sympathy and condolences are sent to her family.
