00urs00ay, 00ayT,00O000 ity Tri-CountyNews. Kimball, MN Commun i%, - .... II _ HH Tidbits Talk about a month that went fast! Fall prevention was the topic discussed this month. Most of us know that most falls occur at home. Fall-related injuries, along with falls are on the rise among adults who are over 65. Currently, Min- nesota ranks third among states in the number of fall-related deaths. Those who fall learn quickly that a fall can change their lives forever. Stay safe and independent in your home by following these sim- ple suggestions.: Keep walk-ways clear. That includes not parking items on stair steps and knowing where your pets are sleeping or lying down when you&apos;re walking. Don't use throw and scatter rugs. Brighten up your apartment or house: use night-lights in bed- rooms, halls, and bathrooms; keep a flashlight and your glasses within reach of your bed. Take a night-light and flashlight along if you're spending the night away from home. Keep a small flash, light on your keychain (I would have appreciated knowing that a few times in the past). Diners were delighted to find cute little "chicks," made by the Kimball Kruisers 4-H Club, at each place setting for the Easter dinner. The ham, O'Brien potatoes, green bean casserole and lemon cheese- cake made for a delicious meal. April is National Volunteer Rec- ognition month. Generally, most celebrations are held during the third week of the month. At the Senior Dining site here, a volunteer party was held April 13. I cheated, or should I say, I was conservative, as I added yellow napkins to coor- dinate with the Easter decorations we already had. The volunteers played a game, "As Ole is to Lena." I gave them a name, and they had to list a name that went with it. Example: Dag- wood - Blondie. Monica won the prize for having the most correct. Following that game, bingo was played. Volunteers chose their appreciation thank-you gift as they got their first bingo. Anita and Peg were the lucky winners of the two complimen- tary meal tickets from headquar- ters. Peg is the newest volunteer and Maymie has volunteered the longest. The senior dining program was organized to keep costs as tow as possible. This means the program has many more volunteers than paid staff. Kimball has 14 volun- teers at the present time, and only two paid staff. Thank you, thank you, and thank you! Peg, May- mie, Ann, Sally, Anita H., Dorothy, Gloria, Benna, Nancy, Hildegard, Monica, Larry, Reta, and Anita V.

I appreciate each volunteer. My daughter Angle attended the Catholic Charities staff appre- ciation at the Holiday Inn as my guest aga!n this year. We enjoyed appetizers, meeting new people, visiting with people we had met before, and a very good meal of smoked pork chops. Yummy! Bet- ter than all that, was the ventrilo- quist James Wedgewood. I remem- bered him entertaining us years ago at the staffparty. He had some different "acts" this time. He was able to keep the crowd in stitches. Catholic Charities recognizes those who volunteer also. Only a small number of them can attend. At our site, the volunteers' names are put in a drawing and Monica, Peg, Ann, Larry, and Reta were the ones who attended this year. In 2008, there were 3,538 volun- teers who donated 116,286 hours of their time. The number of vol- unteers includes volunteers in all programs Catholic Charities over- see. As we look ahead to May, I'd like to encourage you to remem- ber your mother with some Senior Dining meal tickets. Purchasing meal tickets for your loved one spares you any concern about style, fit or color. It is something they can never have too many of. Just contact me through (320) 398- 2211. May is Older. American Month. To celebrate, May 20, a purple party theme will be carried out with a nice roast beef dinner and apple pie. Special music will be by the St. Cloud Fun Singers. Hope you will join us.
