Well another week has past, and I have things you might want to know. The White Pine County Library will have the outdoor book sale on Saturday, August 1, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the County Library. The Senior Center will also be selling the All Class Reunion Commemorative glasses at the book sale.  hese glasses are also available at the Senior Center, so stop by and pick one up. Proceeds for the glasses benefit the Senior Center.

RSVP will be distributing this year’s farmers’ market coupons for low income seniors, at  the Senior Center from Monday July 27-July 29 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., to those that meet the qualifications. Thereafter you will be able to get them at the RSVP Office, 311 Murry Street from 1:30-3 p.m. starting Monday, August 3.

You will need to present a Nevada ID or a Nevada Driver’s License showing a White Pine County residence in order to receive coupons and you must sign the self-certification form at the distribution centers.

I would like to have the winners of the Bridge Group, Bingo Group and any other activity we have going on at the Center. It would be great to mention these people every week. You can give the names to Chris or call John at 775-289-6323, before Tuesday morning.
