Palo Alto Seniors Take Pride In Center

By Staff | Nov 22, 2011

To the Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to visit with the readers of this fine newspaper for a moment to bring you up to speed on the Palo Alto County Senior Citizens group.

I’m certain you have noticed some exterior changes at our entry way in down town Emmetsburg; thanks to a grant from the Casino, I think it is very nice and it will certainly help in the winter by keeping a lot of cold north wind from sweeping through the building. We have a new sign out front. It is really sharp, thanks to Kay Hofstad for doing it for us. We are constantly trying to improve the facility to make it more efficient in heating and cooling and accessibility for handicapped folks. The facility is available to all for meetings, special events and family gatherings. All we ask is that you leave it as you found it. Also, we would appreciate a small contribution for use of the facilities.

While I have your attention I would like to invite you to our annual fund raiser at the VFW on Sunday, December 4th, starting at 8 a.m. We certainly want to thank the VFW for the use of this fine facility. We would also like to thank the Kiwanis for their efforts for the fund raising events in our community.?You do a great service for your community and we want to thank you for it.
