Those Crafty Bath Seniors

bathlogolargeBath Seniors have had a crafty April thus far thanks to the efforts of Pat Davenport and Helen McAllister. Mr. Davenport guided groups in the making of beautiful foam craft butterflies and decorated eggs that now grace the senior’s social hall with colorful reminders that indeed “spring has sprung”. The group, under the watchful eye of Mrs. Mac, cut out circles to make more yoyos for the quilt project we will finish this summer.

With the hopeful event of making the BCSC’s church building a historic site, the local council is working with the senior’s to raise funds necessary to submit the proper paperwork and applications to bring it to fulfillment. The first endeavor is to make theme baskets that will be displayed in one of our local banks and offered for sale in a silent auction. So far, baskets or receptacles of some sort have been assembled representing a garden theme, a tea theme, a breakfast theme, an auto detailing theme, a beach theme, a baby theme, a pet theme and a golf theme. There will also be a Highland theme and the seniors are joining to make a “Fountain of Youth” theme basket.

BCSC members also made their first trip to the local library this month. The librarian, Sharon Lindsay, spent time with the seniors discussing the types of books that are on special display this month which includes raised bed garden projects, flower projects, card art and numerous other activities that the seniors can turn into hands-on works of love at the Center.

The group was excited with the information brought by Joyce Nussbaum and P.Y. Henry about the Chronic Disease Management Workshop that will be held for six weeks beginning in May. The interest and enthusiasm to get the first presentation of this program was endorsed by all in attendance.
