PROBUS Invites, April 12th “Time Management” (Everyone is welcome)
What happened to all the “free time” I was supposed to have when I retired? Did you retire with a list of things you meant to do… but somehow you can’t find the time to do them? Are you interested in managing your time better, now that your time is your own? You’ll leave this one hour talk with specific tool for prioritizing and fitting things in, even when you don’t have a lot of spare time or energy. Guest speaker Susan Lee-Pullen specializes in helping people find time for their creativity.

Volunteer opportunities!

Are you interested in volunteering, and have some background in retail?
The Thrift Shop at the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center is in need of volunteers. The Thrift Shop provides major financial support for the Senior Center, and is a very rewarding volunteer opportunity. Volunteers work a half a day, one day a week. If you are interested in finding out more about helping out in the Thrift Shop, either drop by or call the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center for more information. 206 365-1536.

Birthday Lunch volunteers needed
Birthday lunches are on the 3rd Thursday of each month. We celebrate the birthdays of all current members and their guests in addition to our regular lunch group. The numbers for the lunches can get large (125 in January). Since part of the celebration is to be served, we could really use more people to help us between 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; serving milk, salads, the entrée, dessert. To volunteer, call Jon Ann on Thursdays or Fridays: 206 365-1536

Special Kitchen volunteers needed
Our chef needs more help in the kitchen, preferably with someone who has experience working in a larger kitchen and a fast pace environment. Must have a current food handler’s permit or be willing to get one. The available times are during the day, one or more days a week, to help get lunch prepared and served to the participants. There could be times when there is help needed with the new Kitchen Corner Catering business which offers several catering option and provides funds to support the Senior Center.
