2OThursday, Novemher 20,. 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette Senior News TONOPAH SENIOR NEWS , (702) 482-6450 , by Irene Cessna We began our week with some rain, snow, wind, fog and occasional sun. But in spite of it all, the weather is quite pleasant for the middle of November. Friends and relatives gathered together on Monday, Nov. 10 to say good-bye to one of our outstanding community leaders. Our dear friend, Florence Robinson passed away on Friday, Nov.7 at Washoe Medical Center following a brief illness. The entire community was in shock hearing this sad news. Florence was a very special person. She devoted many years of her life to the Nye County School system, was very active in many community organizations and was aloyal supporterofthe Senior Center. She served for many years on the Senior Center Project Council and endless hours of volunteer work for the betterment of the center. She touched many people along the way with her strength and unrelenting generosity. She is gone now, but not forgotten. Memories of her are etched in our hearts and she will be truly missed. Our love and prayers are with her family in their time of sorrow. A great lady and a true friend. The annual Chrismaas Bazaar event is being held at the Convention Center on November 22.

Highway 372 around and see just how much time and energy is spent keep- ing the center going for you. A good job is done by a very few. At the Veterans Day celebra- tion the senior center had a table to sell ice cream (and it seems to have been enjoyed by all). There were two seniors that manned the table all day. There was relief by two who help when ever they can, al- though they are not seniors. We had an excellent day and sold out. Most were little ones and ice cream cones. You all know how good the banana splits are. Where were you? Congratulations to Chris and Clarey Filter, they now r have a great, great great grand baby, the fifth generation. We need help. We now have shelving for our shed, and we need someone with a hammer and nails. I am sure you have the picture. We will celebrate Thanksgiving on November 26.
