What are we up to?
For several years we have had a printing cash register sitting upstairs gathering dust. We are delighted that Bob has accepted the challenge and figured it out! In the next few weeks, please be patient as our volunteer cashier team adjusts to the new machine. Why are we changing? The new machine will be able to tell us how many specials we sell, how many pieces of pie are purchased, and help Dos figure out how many entrees to make so that we don’t run out!
We ordered a new bingo machine a couple of months ago. It has to be manufactured and it is taking far too long! We will keep checking to see if it is ready yet.
We are looking for a new way to store the sound system in the corner of the main room – maybe something triangular that will fit right in the corner....let us know if you have any ideas on this, and if you understand the technology so that we can give up some of the equipment.
Katie and the craft people are going to obtain a large, lockable cupboard so that they can permanently display items for sale. Christmas is coming!
We are looking for one of those spinning display stands so that we can tidy up all those pieces of paper on the reception desk. The pamphlet rack seems to be working!
We have been moving things around in the kitchen to make storage more efficient on baking days. The latest acquisitions are a small lazy susan, and a muffin display case. Now we are looking for a better way to display slices of pie!
As soon as our stock of plastic straws is used up, we have a supply of paper straws on hand.
Our copy of The Seniors’ Charter fell off of the wall and the frame couldn’t be repaired. We bought a new frame and the Charter is back on the wall in Jessie’s Room.
If you have suggestions for how to improve our Society, and make the Centre even better, please write out your recommendation, sign it, and put it in the suggestion box near the menu board.
