Wauneta Senior Center


The Holidays are upon us and the end of 2013 is coming at us pretty fast. December has been a busy month at the Senior Center. Our December calendar shows that we have the building being used for five Holiday parties and family events.

The Board has decided not to do a Pancake Supper or Sunday dinner this month. Instead, the Center will be hosting a soup supper Sunday evening Dec. 15, 2013.

Proceeds from the supper are designated to go toward replacing 45-50 metal folding chairs that are used in the south side of the building. All of the food and ingredients have been donated for the Supper. Please come and join us for chili and chicken noodle soup with tasty desserts.

The Center is still looking for a full time cook with the option of also doing the book work and cleaning or for someone that would be willing to be an assistant cook and work about four hours a day. Training for either position would be available if needed.

I would like to give a big thanks to those that stepped forward to help with the noon meal carry out program. Currently Lela Hamilton, Bert Steinert, Betty McCallum and Allison Sandman are sharing the duties and it is working out great.

Recently the Board has added two new directors. Our current membership is Berneta Steinert, Ruth Petsch, Terry Engell, Betty McCallum, and Joey Large.

Finally, the Center recently received a generous gift from the Brian and Michelle Harchelroad family in the form of a new flat screen TV to be used in the dining area. With this newer technology, it will allow the Center to explore other entertainment options for our over 60 group in the form of movies or informational videos addressing their needs.

On behalf of the Board, Staff, and volunteers of the Center, your support is truly appreciated and we hope that some of you that have not stopped in to visit with us will take an opportunity to do so in the future. The coffee pot is always on.

Have a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year.
