ST. IGNATIUS — Thank you to the people that put on the Christmas carnival and tree lightening. It was great to see kids having fun and the reindeer were fun.

Thank you to all that have donated coats, hats, gloves, and socks that have been taken to the local school to be given to those that don’t have warm clothing. We will continue to collect such items until Christmas.

I am sending out a plea for the Mission Valley Food Pantry. They need plastic grocery bags and empty boxes that will hold up to 30 pounds and dozen eggs cartons. If you have four hours of time on Tuesdays and Fridays, we are in the need of volunteers to help clients from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You are welcome to come to the St. Ignatius Pantry at 203 Blaine and check things out on the days we are open.

We invite anyone to come and enjoy one of our meals or call for a takeout. Please call 406-745-4462 by 10 a.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays and by 2 p.m. on Wednesdays. Meals times are listed below. Menus for the month are available in the entryway of the center.

—  Friday, Dec. 15: noon - beef barley stew, homemade bread sticks, salad, dessert

—  Tuesday, Dec. 19: fish (tilapia) Veracruz, rice pilaf, salad, dessert

— Wednesday, Dec. 20: 5:30 p.m. - Christmas dinner - ham, mashed potatoes with gravy, veggie salad, dessert

If you could have some type of activity that would help with the winter blues, call us with your suggestion and we will see what can be done here at the center. If you would like a craft night or afternoon, maybe a movie night, coffee hour during the day, call us and help us put this together.  

We invite you to become a member of the St. Ignatius Senior Citizen Center for a fee of $10 a year. You can join us at any age.

The Foot Hills Club meets the second and fourth Wednesday at 1 p.m. for snacks and cards.

Gently Yoga is taught on Wednesdays at 1-2:15 p.m. If you are interested, please call Bonnie Kiser at 406-253-0177. Her rates are five sessions for $60.

We have walkers, a commode, a shower chair, a wheelchair, a high-rise toilet seat, 4-prong canes, regular canes and a transfer bench to loan out as well as XXL Depends to be given out. No cost to the items that are loaned out.

Our St. Ignatius Senior Center is open to being rented. If you are interested, please call 406-745-4462 and leave a message. 

If you need help with other areas of your life such as: transportation, respite, home health services, and  other information call the friendly people at Lake County Council on Aging in  Ronan at 406-676-2367.
