This month I decided that I had given our readers enough information on things to do to help continue to get as much enjoyment out of life as one can even though as we age, we do not have the energy or ability to do all the things we did when we were younger!!! So I decided to share a birthday card I received from my sister that is so appropriate for those of us who have reached “The Wonder Years”! The following is a great definition of what we are faced with in our wonder years!

  1. I wonder where I put my glasses?
  2. I wonder where I parked my car?
  3. I wonder why boys call me “ma’am?
  4. I wonder if I paid that bill?
  5. I wonder when that appointment is?
  6. I wonder why I bought bok choy?
  7. I wonder why everything hurts?
  8. I wonder why it’s so hot in here?
  9. I wonder why it’s so cold in here?
  10. I wonder why I said that?
  11. I wonder if I locked the door?
  12. I wonder what that policeman wants?
  13. I wonder what the speed limit is?

And now to finish with a cute senior joke!!

A senior citizen said to his 80-year-old buddy…….
I hear you are getting married! Yep.
Do I know her?  Nope.
Is she good looking?  Not really.
Is she a good cook?  Naw she can’t cook.
Why in the world do you want to marry her then?  BECAUSE SHE CAN DRIVE!


May 16 was “Senior Day” at the Great Lakes Mall. Thank you to all who attended & supported our “Senior of the Year – Connie Pachete”. Connie joined the Center in 2007 and was elected as Treasurer of our Board in 2015. She continues to hold that position.

Connie generously gives her time – from making our deposits and paying our bills at the Center – to serving meals, selling raffle tickets, answering phones, and helping with the Chinese Auction – just to mention a few of the jobs that she graciously does for us.

Connie has been married to Lou Pachete for 50 years. They have 3 children, 3 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, and a special 4-legged baby “lab” named Ty.

Connie retired from the Lake County Auditor’s Office after 30 years of service.

Please congratulate Connie on being our “Senior of the Year”!  Thank you, Connie, for volunteering at the Senior Center!

Don’t forget that June 18 is Father’s Day.  I’d like to wish everyone a “Happy Father’s Day”.
