The birthday dinner on Wednesday, Aug. 15 started out with Eleanor Hart playing the “Doxology” and “Happy Birthday to You” songs for the 64 patrons in attendance.

Birthday guest included Robert Bennett, Loretta Thomas, Betty Sjostrom and Verne Wagenaar. The hostess, Hazel Zier, provided each birthday person with a smiley face glass filled with candy.

The birthday cake was provided by Shirley and Cliff Groombridge from the Reese & Ray’s IGA bakery in Hardin.

First Interstate Bank provided the cost of the meal ingredients for the Hardin and Lodge Grass senior centers for the birthday dinner. The volunteer from the bank in Hardin was Sarah Noyes, who helped serve the meal.

A 50-50 drawing was held as a fundraiser for the Seniors Association. The winner of $41 was Patty Nordquist. She graciously donated the funds back to the Association.

Music during the dinner was provided by Jerry Metcalf and Jessy Espinoza, whose donation of time and talent for our enjoyment was appreciated.

Next month’s birthday dinner will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 19. You may sign up at any time before Sept. 18.
