This month we’d like to thank Carol Rosales. Carol is one of our non-member volunteers. Her main job for us is working Senior Bingo on Saturdays. She works the lunch counter serving lunches in between the shouts of ”Bingo!” She also serves as a Friendly Visitor and Phone Pal for the Outreach Program. She also helps out at special events with lunches such as our Fashion Show, Hoedown, and Halloween Party. She currently works for San Manual, so she has known about the center due to our relationship with them. It was because of this that she knew Penny Lilburn. One day she called up and asked if she could volunteer on Saturdays. Of course Penny signed her right up. Shortly thereafter, she also signed up for the Outreach Programs as well. Volunteering is in her blood. Her grandparents did lots of volunteer work and instilled that in her. Thanks Carol for your volunteering spirit. We can’t wait until you become a member.

Description: This month we’d like to shine the light on one of our lesser known classes: Table Shuffleboard. The class is taught by Molly Wright, who began teaching the class with her husband Odie. When Odie passed away, Molly took over the group all by herself. The game involved sliding or shuffling eight metal weights (red and blue) over a waxed table. The different colored pucks are to distinguish teams or opponents. The object of the game is to outscore your opponent by sliding your weights farther into the scoring area than your opponents weight. This is done by either hitting their weights out of the way or off the table, or passing them. You can also defend your points by blocking your opponent from knocking off your weights. Skill is needed as is strategy. Finesse, not strength. The first player to score 15 points is the winner. When more than three players play, 21 points win. Newcomers are always welcomed and Molly is more than happy to teach. The class remains a small yet loyal group of shuffleboard fans, who enjoy the class very much. In fact, when the other classes go on break, her class has decided that they want their class to keep on going. The class is on Fridays beginning at 1:00 p.m.
