Looking forward to a new year at Isanti Senior Dining

Helen Remmers
Sub. Coordinator and Volunteer

At the end of each year it becomes more difficult to figure out what happened to the past year. It is time to think about the coming New Year and enjoy each day for today does not return tomorrow. A great place to enjoy your Monday and Wednesdays in the upcoming New Year is at Isanti Senior Dining  held on Monday and Wednesdays in the Isanti Community Center. Starting at 11 a.m. we can enjoy entertainment some days, Bingo other days, and good fellowship each day we are together for our nutritious meal that is served at noon.

Our Christmas Dinner on Dec. 21 was a colorful and enjoyable time together and we thank all the great Isanti Eighth Grade Choirs that appeared with some wearing antlers, their Director and Principal, and singing all those wonderful Christmas songs as they wound their way around the seniors’ tables. Many thanks for that great treat received from our very own Isanti young people and their obvious joy of singing.

We look ahead now with January Happenings and a reminder to come early and walk the perimeter of the room to get some of that cabin fever worked off and the exercise we need.
