Senior Center News

The R & R Railroad has been busy at the Hardin Senior Center. The two R’s, Richard Chapple and Richard Stern, have on display a Polar Express-type of train track set within a winter village. Chapple says they had a lot of fun building the exhibit – it’s made mostly of junk and garbage, but they let their imaginations go.

The creation on display, as well as the time travel railroad display that Chapple has here, are enjoyable to the viewer and dreamer. Stop in and take a look.

Condolences are sent to the family of Carol Bowers from the senior center. Carol was an intricate part of so many lives. She had faith in the younger generation to succeed with their talents. She enjoyed being around people and always had a warm smile to share. May your hearts hold the warm, happy memories of a wonderful woman.

We are enjoying the lunch visits from the Big Horn County Historical Museum staff each week. There’s plenty of interesting conversation and we get to keep up on each other’s happenings.

Monday, April 9 is Cherish an Antique Day. We would like you to bring an antique to share, along with the story behind it.
