Volunteer of the Month
This month we’d like to give thanks to Aneta Giltner. Aneta (pronouced Anita), is one of our newest Trip Office volunteers. However, she is not new to volunteering around here. She had been working at our front desk since June. She was doing such a good job, that Executive Director, Penny Lilburn, asked her to switch to the Trip Office, where we really needed her. There she helps member with Trips, giving information, and receipting money. She enjoys it, but she doesn’t get to interact with people like she did at the front desk. Therefore she is hoping to start volunteering an extra day so she can help out at the front desk again, as well. Originally from Pennsylvania, she married Thomas, who was in the Air Force, who was then transferred out west. They ended their tour of duty at Norton with their daughter, who gave them two grandkids. Thanks Aneta for all the good work.

Description: With a song in my heart I behold your adorable face. Just a song at the start but it soon is a hymn to your grace. When the music swells I\'m touching you hand It tells that your\'re standing near, ... ... I always knew I would live life through with a song in my heart for you. - ‘With a Song in My Heart - Lorenz Hart In memory of Mitch Miller, leader of the famous ‘Sing Along with Mitch,’ who died July 31st, we’d like to spotlite a group that help keeps the singing spirit alive. Singing isn’t something just meant to be listened to. It’s something to do, and the Happy Notes singing group takes this to heart. Every Monday morning from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. the Sun Room is filled with the sound of joy as they sing their hearts out. They sing songs of long gone days. Back when music had melody and the lyrics were something every age could sing and were...well, lyrical. They harken back to the days when families and friends would gather around the piano and belt out memories. They sing the same songs, but each song holds a different memory for each person. But there is a common bond. They are all having a great time. Don’t worry if you don’t know the words. The group has songbooks for people to follow. The only requirement is that you have a good time. All are invited to come on in and all are welcome! Remember what Ella Fitzgerald once said. “The only thing better than singing is more singing.”

Last month we held our second Bunco Blowout. Once again it was a sold out event Now we have Bunco every Friday, but this was a special event. Normally the group plays with 7 tables, but, for over $400 in prizes, the number of tables increased to 10 full tables, with 40 players. We even had a waiting list for hopefuls.
Even with a normal crowd the group is loud. However with the extra people we were surprised we didn’t get any noise complaints from the neighbors! For our game prizes were handed out for the most buncos (Vi Webb), most games won (Jean Murtaugh), 2nd - 4rd place, and the least amount of games won (Linda Winn). Thanks to everyone who came out, win or lose, to have a blast playing bunco.
