— The holiday season is in full swing now. We all need to take the time to remember our elderly neighbors who are less fortunate. Just taking the time to check on an elderly neighbor will show them that you care and brighten their day.

There are many homebound seniors who receive Meals on Wheels. Many of these seniors must juggle their bills in order to pay for medications, putting food at the bottom of their priority list. You can help homebound seniors by donating to our Feed a Homebound Senior program. If you knew an elderly person was homebound and in need of a meal, would you pay $3 to furnish a meal for them? $3 can feed a homebound senior for one day through the Meals on Wheels program. Please include the name and address of the person who isto receive the donation or, if not listed, the meals will be provided for a needy homebound person.

One meal is $3; 5 meals, $15; 10 meals, $30 and 20 meals, $60. Please mail your check to Billy V. Hall Senior Activity Center, Box 1648, Gravette, AR 72736 with the number of meals and the following information: Yourname, address, city, state and zip code. For info call the Center, 787-5950.

Basket Weaving And Corn Husk Doll Instruction Demonstrations Scheduled Here

A free class on basket weaving, finger weaving and instructions on how to make corn husk dolls will be held Saturday, December 19, at the Gravette Civic Center.

Representatives of the Keetoowah Cherokees will be present to provide free instructions from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The group had been scheduled to attend a pre-Thanksgiving event but circumstances prevented the class from being held, said Kay Roberts.

“Everything is free,” Roberts said, and “everyone interested in these Native American crafts is invited to attend.”
