Happy New Year

2010 is officially underway at the Johnson Center. New Year's resolutions have been made and we look back on the holiday season with fond memories. Our Santa Social was FABULOUS! What a fun day filled with music, dancing and holiday cheer. We want to thank Wilma, Steve and Dick for entertaining us with their tunes from the past during our New Year's celebration. How lucky we were to toast 2010 together among friends.

So far, January has been so cold. Some of us have commented that it is weather for polar bears and penguins. Our favorite song has been "Baby, It's Cold Outside". Despite the cold, we have been staying warm and keeping busy with many different activities. The National Stock Show will be in town and we will celebrate Western Welcome Week during the entire month. Look for Western Week on January 18-22. Be sure to wear your western clothes-----boots, jeans, cowboy hats----whatever you want. There will be plenty of western trivia, games and discussions about the wild west. Country music will be provided by Don Garcia on Thursday, Janury 21st.

Dr. Martin Luther King will be honored on Monday, January18th. The Center will be open as we pay tribute to the great civil rights leader. We look forward to hearing about the life of Dr. King and some excerpts from his famous "I Have A Dream" speech.

Did you know that January 23rd is National Pie Day? What a great opportunity to indulge by having a piece of your favorite pie!!
