What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Page 18 — BIG TIMBER (MT) PIONEER — Week of Dec. 26 , 2003 • Jan. 1, 2004 H o s p i t a l i t y H o u s e N e w s By MARILYN RAISLAND Senior Citizen Center Director In this season of giving and giv­ ing thanks, we in Big Timber know just what Christmas Miracles are' Just look at Larry Pray and Louie Todisco. Look at the miracle of prayer and support that has brought the community together in Itive for those two souls. My wish for all of you this Christmas and New Year is that through the trials of just living each day. you are able to keep the miracle of Christmas in your hearts and enjoy each day to the max And in the spirit of giving we have been blessed by the generosity of Laura Cowell (for all those lovely Christmas decorations). Tamcla Johnson (for the baby’s breath for the tree) to Craig and Diane Snodgrass (for all the merchandise they gave us), to Cili/ens Bank lor the donation to our Meals on Wheels (MOW) program and to the Church ol Christ lor their donation to our congregate meals program These wonderful people know the Hue spirit of Christmas. So in that spirit I would like to remind you that these donations are lor every­ one. flic donations to the MOW and Congregate Meals funds are for those that might not be able to pay for meals tor themselves, or might be only able to pay part of the meal costs This is so hey can gel a hot. nourishing meal at least once a day. Please let me know confidentially, so we can continue this great serv­ ice We appreciate all of you who brought m aluminum can tabs for the Ronald McDonald Mouse We keep collecting them all year— so keep saving We held our monthly meetings and the reports went as follows. I reported on our insurance Pal Leary has been working hard on our behalf to get our insurance needs sorted out. He has switched our companies, and got us a good rale in the tieal. Area II is behind on getting the reports I send into their computers. It was suggested maybe I could just send them a backup disk and they could download it. (I called and they need to check with someone to see if that will work.) Old Business: Raises for Norma and Marilyn were discussed and it was noted that Area II built raises into the budget for them this year. Norma has never had a raise since she started three years ago and Marilyn has only had one in hes four and a half years This was tabled until the next meeting, while we wait for more mlormation. then the raises would he retroactive to Januarv I 200-1 New Business- The need for a new Vice Chairman and Treasurer and check signer was discussed Lydia llauge giaciously (kicking and screaming till the way actually, ha. ha) agreed to be the new Vice Chairman We will ask John Ronncberg il he would like to take on yet another task by being treasur­ er New check signers will be Lydia Hauge. Byron Manley. Lola Perrins and Ursula Ostneherg. Stall bonuses were discussed and passed. Special session- Jess Karlson asked if he and some friends could use the Senior Center for a free com­ munity dinner to be held in January They would provide all the food and labor but need a building to hold it in. A discussion was held and we could sec no drawbacks to his pro­ posal; it was passed unanimously. Volunteers wanted- There is a plan underway to help the residents of the PMC and seniors in their homes to attend thur local churches on Sunday mornings. We have offered to let them use the senior hus which is handicap equipped, but wc need volunteer drivers anti aides to help transport these people. We hope to gel enough so that you would only need to work one in every six Sundays No special drivers license is needed and training will be pro­ vided. If you would like to partici­ pate. or have questions or input .please call the Hospitality House at 932-5455 We got a notice from the State long term and senior care division and they have asked that we write our congressmen in Washington and ask them not to cut the personal commodities program We photo­ copied letters to them and had them available to sign Louie Strand. Mary Lay and l-erne Prather were the winners of our monthly meal drawing. Willard Busby our Senior Center Inis driver, is doing very well and has Mailed his physical therapy m Columbus. Our Christmas parly was held on December 17. and what a great time we had! Wc started it off by having Norma’s great tomato soup (think 4-B’s) and ground roast beef sandwiches with a delicious pump­ kin delight dessert Then on to the entertainment. Ardus Evers put in a lot of tune arranging the program and getting us all organized. The Kitchen Band had been practicing overtime to get it right and boy were they good! We had u skit put on by Gordon Strand. Ardus Evers jih I Bernice Noor about Ole’ and Lena. Clara Strand and Gordon Sargent, accom­ panied by Ruth Braley. preformed a beautiful duet.
