Serving the Klamath Community through Meals on Wheels
A knock at the door might not seem like a big deal to many of us. But, to a homebound senior, it could signal the arrival of the only person they might see all day or all week long. It brings hope. It brings health. It brings the nutrition and care that will completely make their day. We can’t do it alone. It takes all of us to keep the meals on wheels movement going. Call the Senior Center at 541-883-7171 to become a volunteer today!
If you or someone you know is in need of Meals on Wheels, please register with the Klamath Lake Counties Council on Aging by calling 541-205-5400.

Director's Greeting: The Heart Sustains Us! By Marc Kane, It's hard to say which of the human organs is the most important but I choose the heart because I believe without its production of life sustaining blood all our other parts would not be able to sustain themselves. Our health focus in this issue is all about caring for the heart, and of course much about the heart’s way of having us care for each other. It’s not only Heart Health Awareness Month, but the month that brings us swooning over our loved ones on Valentine’s Day. I love the month of February!This is the month when I celebrate my memories of a favorite story and movie, the Wizard of Oz. We all remember the scarecrow in search of a brain, the tin man looking for a heart and the lion trying to find courage. It’s a fascinating story that reveals how they all must work together. The brain enables us to know who we are and recognizes our diversity. The heart produces the ability to accept our diversity, and it is courage that puts all into play—to take those steps to engage and build relationships that make this a better world for us all.I hope you enjoy this edition and find something here to send you on a journey to sustain your heart’s health in all its aspects, be it to pump blood or to love. Take note of an opportunity at our Lunch’n’Learn series to learn all about caring for your heart on Tuesday, February 14th. And don’t miss poems and stories in our section, Expression of Heart and Mind. As always I remind you here of all the activities at the Senior Center designed to bring us together and keep us connected to each other and community. See our calendar of events on our website at klamathseniorcenter.com/activities or in a printed version of the newsletter that you can pick up at the Center. It has a new section this month with a brief description of many of the activities we offer.A special thanks this month to the Klamath County Commissioners for awarding a grant of up to $135,000 to improve two of our building’s entrances and the appearance of our building. They have taken steps to help us make our building a more inviting and accessible place. These actions also communicate that our commissioners value our services and the importance of our presence in our community. Another project to enhance accessibility to our building will be the installation of a lift from the reception area to the second floor. Construction begins in February on that project.Thanks to Dawn Wallace who recently volunteered to serve on our center’s Board of Directors. Dawn was elected to the board on Wednesday, January 25th. Dawn comes to the board with extensive experience in a human service career. She has also served as one of our Boost Your Brain and Memory class instructors. Two other candidates are also being considered for board appointments at the board’s next meeting on February 22nd. There is always a place to volunteer at the senior center.Come Celebrate Life With Us ! All Are Welcome ! ... See MoreSee Less
