Ah February, the month of love. It's in the air. At Lowell Center, too.
Let's share the love you have. Join us to assemble Valentines to share with residents of local nursing and rehabilitation centers. We'll meet at 1:30 p.m. Feb. 13 to assemble Valentines and enjoy some sweet treats. Cards will be pre-cut, we just ask for your assistance in putting a few special final touches.
Last year we spread the love with more than 100 Valentines being delivered and hope this year we can make even more. Just imagine the smiles and giggles when they are delivered.
How about taking a spin around the dance floor with your sweetie? Jerry Strack will be providing dancing tunes from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 19. Admission is only $2.50 per person and Valentine treats and snacks will be served.
Love to be ahead of the game? Then let's get your tax appointment scheduled. The AARP Tax Aide Program is designed to provide free assistance for low to middle-income taxpayers, with special attention to those ages 60 and older. Volunteer counselors, trained in cooperation with the IRS, will be available from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Monday and Wednesday, beginning Monday and running through April 9. Tax preparation will take place at the Lowell Center. Appointments are required and can be made by calling 715-422-2776 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Believe in Love Potion No. 9? See if it really works when we travel to Green Bay to enjoy the show "Beauty and the Beav" at the Meyer Theatre on April 26. Lunch will be served at a local Green Bay restaurant, and we'll swing by Taylor Creek for some shopping on our way home. The cost to find out whether Love Potion No. 9 really works is only $87 per person for the day. Call Lowell Center at 715-421-1051 for more information or stop in to sign up. A $15 deposit is required.
Who doesn't love a cold beer? We travel to Fanny Hill on June 11 to see the hilarious comedy "Beer for Breakfast" about four middle-aged buddies reuniting for a "guys' weekend." One of them doesn't show up ? but his wife does. An epic struggle ensues: who is the superior sex? And more importantly, if Doritos are made of corn, why can't they be considered a serving of vegetables? Will Doritos be on the menu for lunch? You'll have to join us to find out.
On the way home, we will make a brief stop at the Norske Nook Bakery and Restaurant in Osseo. Cost for day is $68 per person. Stop in to Lowell Center to sign up with a $15 deposit.
