28 Thursday, January 30, 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette Senior News i ii, iii ii i i Tt00tVXti SENIOR NEws ......... (702) 482-6450 Hello to all our/fiends. Winter has just begun and we are already tired of it. Guess we'll have to undergo an attitude adjustment period. Here we are wishing it was spring. No such luck for awhile. But all in all, many of our Seniors are beginning to shake the colds and flu virus and are able to return to the center. Our meal count has dropped a bit but that's understandable. Even our roads have been slick and icy and driving has been a challenge. Sometime it's better to stay home than to drive under such conditions. i iii S00M/00P00KE WELI00ILLING LLC Well Drilling Complete submersible Pump & Water Tank System Installed Power Pedestal (200amp} Trenching for Power and Installing Waterlines from Well to Home 00..00ptic Systems Includes: Pete.

Thank you to John Young for his donation of$10. Also a special thank you to Rick Casey for all the table and chair work, they're getting to be a bit much for me. During and after the question was brought up, "Why do we need to have fund raisers" it gets more complicated than just that simple question and there will be a notice put out to explain this more completely. The center is not completely supported by Nye County, and with the budget cuts of the last two .(2) years it has hurt us financially. We provide all the fixing for the salad bar, as well as purchasing matt of the paperproducts that the center uses. It was necessary approximately 3 months ago, or more to cut off the cleaning of the center, as a paid position, in order to help save money. This was then done by a volunteer worker. This is also an expense of the council. Any improvements that are not considered capitol projects are also funded by the Senior Coun- cil. PE'I'T money, if any is left, is for capitol projects only. This is the main reason for fund raisers. It may be necessary for us to spend additional funds to keep the center running in the manner that we wish. Anyone, and all, are invited to attend the Council meeting to help with input on making these decisions that affect all of us. Join us at the next council meeting. Minutes of the council meetings will be available in the future for your review.
