Sept. 13 open house planned

Evenings are getting cooler. Only one more week of Concerts in the Park (where I happily see many of the members from the Herman Prior enjoying the free event) and then like magic we are back into the regular fall schedule.

Not all of our programs start the first week of September so please drop by the center and pick up the calendar, or call us and we can e-mail it to you. We will be having an open house here at the Herman Prior on September 13th from 4 pm to 7 pm. Besides having groups here for sign up to the programs and to answer questions about the classes and services we offer, we are having other groups come in with important information about what they offer. Groups like Services for Seniors, Alzheimers, Daughter on Call, the Fire Department, Age Friendly Committee and Hills Pharmacy. If your group would like to have an information table please let us know! Also, at this time if you have other ideas or classes you would like to have offered here, you can come and talk to us about it. I just received a list today including “Pinterest 101”. Who is up for that?

Excitement is also building for our wine and cheese social in October. We will be soliciting local businesses for door prizes. If your business has anything to donate we would appreciate it for our rainbow auction. In November we are having our annual craft sale at the beginning of the month, and tables are selling fast. And at the end of November we are going to a special Old Time Country Show at the Centennial Concert Hall in Winnipeg called “Christmas in Nashville”. Seats for that are going quickly.

We have already started selling our canned products, which include pickled beets, dill pickles, bread and butter pickles, jams, jellys and apple sauce. Please visit our Facebook page and check it out where a full list of prices is available. Let us know if you have special requests or would like to pre-order, subject to availability of produce, and we are still accepting donations of produce, jars and even any canning equipment.

The number is 204-857-6951 or email

See you at the Prior!

Executive Director
