February and the months to come promise to be exciting times for the Jenks Center.
February Packs a Big Punch in 2015
Poor little February is always short-changed. The little guy has only twenty eight days. Of course, he’s bullied once every four years to take on one additional day to make things come out even. In the jingle to remember which months have thirty days and which have thirty one, February comes at the very end, sort of an after-thought. Even when we speak about February, many of us don’t even pronounce the first “r” in its name. Poor little February indeed!
But, wait just a moment. February at the Jenks Center is packed with activities. The good old standards of exercise classes, Eating Together and Keep Well Clinic continue. The Italian and French classes are in place. SHINE Counselors, nutrition information and strength training are all on the calendar as usual. The traditional Texas Hold’em Poker and Bridge card games are being supplemented by a new session of Whist, a forerunner of bridge. Yes, it is tax preparations time again. Music fills the air from the Jenks Chorus, Line Dancing, Dance Fever, Square Dancing and February Follies rehearsals. Sewing and crafts programs continue. As always, the main lobby provides a welcoming space for expanding friendships.
The Jenks Center is taking on a huge new undertaking this month. The first phase of the highly touted “Re-Jenks Project” is in full swing during February. This construction project will transform the Jenks Center into a more efficient, more pleasant and more welcoming facility for Winchester seniors for years to come. Although the project occasionally may require rescheduling some activities, every effort will be made to notify folks in advance of such changes. Watch the Jenks website (www.jenkscenter.org) for last-minute changes. Weekly schedules with room assignments will be posted on the bulletin board next to the coffee credenza in the lobby.
