That is such a terrific facility and filled with Medical and other staff who are the terrific facility.

On Monday Feb. 18, President’s Day it will be three on three competition in basketball and more for grades three through eight, come spend the day. The giving campaign for financial assistance scholarships begins March first. Be loved, be generous. The Battle of The Bulge is in progress.
All the proposed and nominated officers and board members — new and reinstated — reported in December were installed at the January meeting.
We are good to go for another year. It appears the Y’s Folk will be involved in several YMCA activities through out the year.
The Y’s Folk association meeting on Feb. 18 will be a potluck noon lunchen followed by a business meeting and a program aimed at and for we old folks.
Two gentlemen will come share their activity, report what is new and leave us well informed. The are Lyle Hoxtell and Mark Tysver. Lyle has been the Coordinator on Aging for Ottertail Co. Public Health Department, now in the Government Services Center, for many years. He plans to fill us in on what is new and important for “we old folks.” The health insurance and drug benefits are constantly changing. Lyle was born and schooled at Ortonville, Minn., to U of M Morris for college and then to Luther Seminary in St. Paul to become a Preacher all before he went to get a Master’s degree at NDSU. He worked in ND Human Services at Jamestown for 19 years. Lyle is a real people person who will be retiring the end of June this year.
Mark is Program Manager for the Nine County area up in North West Minnesota, a part of the total 21 county area known as; “The Land of The Dancing Sky- Area Agency on Aging.” His office is on So. Mill St. here in Fergus Falls.
He will be talking about some more Senior Issues, a contract on Title Three and other program developments. Mark is from the Carlisle area, schooled in FF and a BA degree from Moorhead State College. He worked 25 years in Nursing Home Administration and has 12 years in his present position. I suggest you come, guests invited, and take notes.
We play bridge on Monday afternoons.
