Covenant Cafe to meet Tuesday, Oct. 19

LOCK HAVEN — The Covenant Cafe, an early stage Alzheimer’s activity group, will be meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 19 from 1-3 p.m. in the parking lot of Covenant United Methodist Church for “Game Day.”

The group will play a variety of games including corn hole, Jenga, Yahtzee, checkers and BINGO. Participants will also complete a Halloween craft and a self-portrait photo in a decorated frame. In the event of rain, the activities will be moved inside the church assembly room where participants will be asked to wear masks in accordance with the Alzheimer’s Association guidance. Guests are welcome and light refreshments will be served.

The Covenant Cafe is a joint venture between the Outreach and Witness Committee of Covenant United Methodist, the Alzheimer’s Support Group and the Alzheimer’s Association.

Participants in this group are given an opportunity to be involved in socially and physically stimulating programs which will help them remain as active as possible. New members are always welcome.

Downtown Rotary Club offers

open house Oct. 26

LOCK HAVEN — I would help my community if I had the time. I want world peace but I’m just one person.

If thoughts like these have ever crossed your mind, try some Rotary magic. Members of Rotary know that when everyone gives a little time and effort, something really big gets done!

The Rotary Club of Downtown Lock Haven invites you to an open house Tuesday, Oct. 26 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Poorman Gallery, 352 E. Water St., Lock Haven.

Stop in to say hello at the informal event, enjoy refreshments, and get a glimpse of “the magic.”

Why Rotary? The club members can tell you. They’ll share a little of their passion for the club’s projects, which include Little Red Libraries, Flags of Honor in Triangle Park over Memorial Day, Angel Lights luminaries in the park to remember 9/11, and gift bags for veterans in nursing homes. The club also co-sponsors the Interact Club at Central Mountain High School, gives a scholarship each year, donates to local causes, and raises funds for ShelterBox to help victims of natural disasters. Rotarians also contribute to the global fight against polio. The latest project is raising awareness about human trafficking.

“We’re looking forward to the evening,” club president Marianne Lotfi said. “We hope to meet new people, and we also invite friends of the club to stop by and catch up a little.”

If you would like more information about the open house or Rotary, please email Lotfi at dlhrotary@gmail.com.
