To prevent the possible exposure to COVID-19, the Hardin and Lodge Grass Senior Centers will not serve congregate meals through March 27, 2020. The Centers will be closed for activities, as well.

Both the Hardin and Lodge Grass centers will offer pick up or home delivered meals only. Pick up meals are ready at 11:45 a.m. Just drive to the front door, we will watch for you and bring it to your vehicle.

Reservations for meal pick ups should be made one day in advance by calling your local center.


Luck o’ the Irish

Blarney stones were donated to the Hardin Senior Center for St. Patrick’s Day by Shirley and Cliff Groombridge. Amy Unruh did a wonderful job preparing them. They were delicious. Thank you. The seniors really enjoyed them.

Unfortunately, we were not able to celebrate the March birthdays in person, we’d like to wish the following seniors a Happy Birthday, Joyce Buckingham, Tom Warren, Rosalind Stern, Patti Fischer, Jean Koebbe, Betty Jean Seder, Kathy Koch and Debbey Warren.


Venturing out

Here’s a couple suggestions to help you get out of the house when it’s appropriate. Remember to maintain a distance from others of six feet or more.

The Healthy Hardin Coalition has designated two walking paths. The starting point for the Custer Park Loop is at the Little Big Horn Center, 317 N. Custer Ave in Hardin.

Walkers can park vehicles in the senior center lot. The walk is easy and on sidewalks. Start at the Hardin Senior Center and go west to Custer Park and back.

The second walking designation is the Historic Downtown Loop, which is 2 miles, easy, and on sidewalks. It goes from the senior center to Reese and Ray’s IGA and back again.

Another suggestion is to take a ride in the country. Highway 47, north of Hardin, is newly paved for 10 miles. At the 6 miles marker is an interesting Historic Site pullout.

On Highway 47 at 20 the mile mark is the Herbel residence. There, the cows are having babies everyday. Park safely off the highway and you just may see the little guys all so pretty and new.

A drive to Yellowtail Dam could be pleasant. Stop along the way at the fishing access sites to see wildlife on the river or stop at the Afterbay to see geese.

Or you can head east of Hardin toward Sarpy and take a big loop trip. The road comes out on Sarpy Creek near Hysham, jump on Interstate 94 to Custer and back into Hardin.

Enjoy the Spring! The Birds are Singing!
