Senior Center events in August
For the Antigo Times
We would like to thank everyone for their support at Music In the Park and at Lakeside this past week.
The Center has had a very busy July, so we are going to take it a little easy in August.

•Tuesday & Thursday mornings, there is coffee and conversation from 9-11 a.m. Come out and bring a friend and join in.
•Bingo is on Wednesdays from 1-2:30 p.m. The crowd is getting bigger, so come and play and make some new friends.
•Cards are played on Thursdays from 1-4 p.m. Now they are playing Canasta and Pinochle. Some people have been asking about Sheepshead and Cribbage; if you would like to play these games, let us know and we can see if we can work something out.
