Thank you, Marie Gawf, for taking this project and running with it! We now have this beautiful bulletin board to give people ideas for sharing random acts of kindness. The goal is to foster kindness and goodwill among our participants…. and sometimes, ya just need a hug!!
The class day and time has changed and will be starting a half hour earlier than previously held and will meet on Fridays, so….Fridays from at 12:30 and will end at 2:30
Students have been learning how to create pinch pots, make ceramic pockets and
create all kinds of interesting bowls, cups, vessels, plates, plaques using either red or gray clay rolled on our new slab roller.Students learn to apply their knowledge as they roll flat their own slabs of clay. We’ve had a lot of fun with these projects!
Bridget Moore, our instructor, works with each individual’s pace in an informal, casual classroom environment…..so don’t be intimidated if you lack experience with clay. The instructor will be more than eager to help you get caught up with the rest of the class and jump right in!
Class times: Fridays, 12:30-2:30.
Course fees: $10/day or $35 for the month for ages 50+. $15/day or $50 for the month for ages 6-49.
Group events are welcome and we will be holding special classes over the summer. Ask Kate or Bridget for more details. All ages welcome to join in! Fees vary.
Shawnee Senior Center received a grant for $32,950 from Walmart Foundation’s State Giving Program to fight hunger. The grant will be used to add more nutritional food to the breakfast menu and for dedicated staff for meal preparation, shopping, etc.
Kas Murdock, the Breakfast Coordinator, will now have Melissa Dethrow as an assistant to help her with the meals, prep, clean up and shopping. Kas has been making meals for three years now. Shawnee Milling Company has been providing flour and gravy mix since the program began. Kas’ daughter, Karen Trevino, uses the flour to make homemade biscuits and bread (OMG – amazing!!).
We are so grateful to Shawnee Milling, and now Walmart Foundation for their commitment to fighting hunger among our seniors.
Thank you, Walmart Foundation and Shawnee Milling Company!
