Thursday, April 20 @ 1:30pm Visiting the Biltmore is as close to time travel as one can experience. The Biltmore Estate was created by George Verderbilt. Plans began for the 250 room Biltmore House, its four acres of floor space, qualifying it as the largest private home in America. The home is still privately owned by Vanderbilt’s descendants. Because of the continuity of the family’s ownership, the Biltmore House is still filled with the original furnishing, art and artifacts. Join Joyce Ohrmundt of Nationwide Travelers for a Travel Showcase focusing on the spectacular Biltmore Estate, Asheville, NC and Blue Ridge Mountains. Free and open to the public. Please preregister at (920) 686-3060. See page 12 for the full trip itinerary.

You don’t have to stop your daily walks due to cold, snow and ice. Walk safely and keep your routine with the Safe Winter Walking Program. Please be sure to bring clean, dry tennis shoes for walking. Free and open to all who wish to participate. The last date of the Safe Winter Walking Program will be on Friday, March 31. Thank you to all who have made this season a success!

Enjoy “50 Reasons to get out of bed in the morning”, a fun little book created by Judy Sigman, who was a “senior” student at Silver Lake College in the 1980’s. This book was Judy’s first attempt at writing and was a culmination on a number of courses she had taken at the school. Currently, Judy serves on the Board of Directors of the Manitowoc Symphony Orchestra. If you enjoy reading the “50 Reasons to Get Out of Bed in the Morning”, stop in at the Senior Center! We have some copies to give out, which Judy so graciously donated to the Center!

Do something you’ve never done before… Who cares where it will lead? Well, the authorities just might, I suppose—use a little caution. Just get out of bed in the morning and do it! Remember, it has to be something you have never done before in your life— something you’ve always wanted to do, but have always put off doing. You might even want to research this project, in order to really accomplish it. And, if you do it with enough style and energy, some day what you’ve accomplished may become the project that somebody else will be researching. The Senior Center offers many different classes and activities you are sure to find something new to do!

Baby-sit for working parents...Could you use a little extra income? Here’s a good— maybe perfect—way to earn it. Babysitting allows working parents to pursue their careers while you have the fun of pursuing their children. And it’s a very nice feeling to know your needed (nice??’s essential). If you want the extra action to go with the extra income, you're almost sure to get it—this job is guaranteed to keep you on the move! Should you be willing and find it more convenient, offer your own home. Remember, an “offering” in this sense is not a child-proof your place first. You could always volunteer in a school classroom too!

Those we love don’t go away, They walk beside us every Day.

All ladies are welcome to join the Lakeshore Red Hatters. We meet the 2nd Friday of every month at 1:30 p.m. at the Senior Center. The hostesses for February were Shirley Oswald, Bev Gilbertson and Delores Boeckman. They served a delicious tea. The February birthday was Irene Kotarek. The guest speaker was Lynn Kaminski from the Manitowoc county Health Dept. She talked about all the services provided by the health dept. Some of them were restaurant inspections, inspect hotel pools and whirlpools. Children’s immunizations, provide radon testing for homes, support for breast feeding mothers, work with WIC programs and many others. March committee are Joyce Morrison, An Smaglik and Marilyn Neumeyer. The lunch for March will be on Thursday, March 16th at Friar Tucks at 11:30am. It was discussed and decided not to have monthly reimbursements. We will have a Rummage sale at the March Sale. We will have general and Red Hat merchandise. Proceeds will go to the treasury. If you want to sell something on your own and keep the money, you must stay with your merchandise. We will have the Silver Lake Art Students at the April tea to help us become artists. Sounds like an exciting tea. I can hardly wait. We now have a collection of addresses of all Red Hatters. If you missed the February tea call, Carol Parker is at Shady Lane. She broke her leg. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers. If you can, visit her. Funny Bone Ticklers A Red Hatter was Celebrating her 72nd birthday. Her young grandson called to wish her a happy birthday. He asked her how old she was, and when she said 72 he was very quiet and then asked her , “Did you start at one?” Have a great Red Hat Day, Terry

Tuesday, March 21 @ 1pm Hacksaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WW!!, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal. There are some very graphic scenes of violence and gore in this movie.

Thank you to our sponsor, HomeCare Health Services, for providing refreshments during the movies!
