Greensburg Adult Center hosts annual game day


Jamie Snoddy from Crown Pointe Senior Living Community then led the group in a rousing game of hangman, featuring actors and actresses from the 1950s. Other games and prizes were provided by representatives from Aspen Place Health Campus, Skybird Manor, Arbor Grove Village, Heritage House, The Waters of Batesville and Hickory Creek. Anyone wanting to play games at the center or host a game for next year’s event is invited to contact Diana Robbins at 812-663-2232.

Arbor Grove Village provided donuts and danishes in the morning, Morning Breeze Retirement Community provided snacks throughout the day and Aspen Place Health Campus provided a delicious homemade lunch of lasagna, salad, and garlic bread.

Game day organizer Diana Robbins said the various facilities in the area for seniors are wonderful about participating in the event, which happens once a year and is usually in September.

In October, the Greensburg Adult Center will hold their big fundraiser for the year. October 25 will be the annual fall harvest dinner at the center, which is open to the public at a cost of $8 per person. Robbins said they usually serve more than 300 people.

In December, the Adult Center will hold a craft day where community members can come make crafts during the day-long event, many of which make wonder gifts. Also in December will be a cookie exchange.

Robbins said the Adult Center has several activities that they could use volunteer assistance with and invited anyone interested to contact her or Jerry Schwendenmann at the Greensburg Adult Center. She added that if there was something that one wanted to see at the center to please let them know.

Additionally, there will be a new electronic sign in operation soon that will advertise Adult Center events. The newsletter is $7 per year and also includes all Adult Center events, games, recipes and general information. To sign up for the newsletter, contact Robbins at 812-663-2232.
