Twenty members and two guest speakers enjoyed the potluck dinner served Feb. 12 at the meeting held for the Granton/Chili senior citizens at the Granton Community Hall. Amy Nigon, benefit specialist from the Aging Office, assisted people who came for Homestead Credit help. She also alerted members on the cuts Gov. Walker wants to make in his budget for SeniorCare, BadgerCare and for FamilyCare. The cuts will affect paying for needed drugs. Following her presentation, Dulcie F. Lilly AmeriCorps representative from Clark County Emergency Management, spoke about winter weather emergencies and winter driving helps, and gave out Vial of Life packages to update our original medications. The business meeting followed. The January meeting was cancelled due to the snow and cold weather, so birthdays for January were also included in the February birthday song. Carol Ayers burnished the ice cream for her birthday.
It was sadly reported one of the group’s members, Milly Faber, died Monday Feb. 9, at the home of her daughter, Bonnie Faber, in Rice Lake where Milly had been staying for the past few months. Milly, with her many musical abilities, and who beautifully decorated the tables each month with her vast assortment of flowers and things, will be missed by all. A memorial service is scheduled to be held May 2 at the living Hope Church in Neillsville. A Memorial will be given to the Granton Library in Milly’s honor. The March meeting will be held Thursday, March 12. Bring a gift for playing Bingo. Visitors are welcomed.
