The Paonia Senior Center received a big, big surprise recently. A couple buying a new home in Paonia recently donated a 73-inch Mitsubishi high-definition television included in their purchase to the center.
"They don't watch TV," said Senior Center board president Lynn Bear. The center was happy to accept the generous gift. "We love donations," said Bear.
Elders from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gave generously of their time in setting up the system. Senior center board secretary Bobbie Selk brought in a VCR and Bear purchased a DVR player so that visitors will be able to watch the dozens of movies and documentaries on DVD and VCR contained in the center's library.
The center is located at 106 Third Street and is open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Nutritious meals are offered at a low cost, and can be delivered to homebound seniors. Call 527-3435 for more information.
