Senior Citizen News
County seniors have been
busy this week.
On Monday, a group went to
John Day in the new senior
bus to attend the Area Agency
on Aging meeting.
On Tuesday several went to
Pendleton for the C.A.P.
Board meeting. On Wednes
day at 1:30 p.m., a large
delegation went from Heppner
to join others from Irrigon at
the monthly Senior Citizens
Advisory Council meeting at
lone. After the meeting, all the
visitors shared the evening
meal with the lone seniors.
Just last week I listed the
names of six youth who are or
were employed under the
Around About
Cont. from page 5
Irene Swansori, whose bef ore-Morrow home was near the
campus, came there to wait until Steve and I finished our
assignment at 9 p.m. She feels sentimental about that sector
of Salem, the old McKay Mill, the millrace, the streets,
campus and state buildings. Irene said that Salem is more
than twice as large now than it was during her girlhood there.
She had been visiting many members of her own family and
had agreed to ride back to Heppner with us.
Sunday morning (about 2 a.m. as we three came south
from lone), we came upon a very recent accident at the
corner of Mollahan's Ranch and Bunker Hill Road. We all
feared that possibly some young people coming from the
rodeo dance might be involved as unfortunately proved
true. Rev. Tollefson insisted on staying at the accident scene
to be helpful with his Heppner-acquired Emergency Medical
Technology training while Irene and I came on to our homes.
He admitted during his final worship service Sunday
morning that he didn't get to bed until 5 a.m. and then was up
again in just a few hours and into a very busy day.
Because this must be turned in before the completion of
the voting on the county and hospital budgets, I cannot
comment on the results which I am anxiously awaiting. Both
Jimmy Carter and I shall be most disappointed if voters
haven't done their civic duty and used the sacred ballot
boxes. I hope that after Jimmy gets back from Japan, we will
both stay at our own white houses and catch up with local

ment and Development for

since learned that one of the
boys listed, Wayne Eckley,
has been replaced by Dan
Keister, Lexington.
This week, I am feeling
more lucky than usual. To get
details about how lucky I have
been, you need to hear the
stories from Inez Erwin about
my astonishing good luck in
Anyway, I had a delightful
surprise in finding worker
Dan Keister and fellow worker
Phillip Williams, also from
Lexington, at my door by 8
a.m. on Monday to help me
with weed eradication. Such
joy. Happiness is being a
senior citizen in Morrow
County having help about the
home on needed occasions and
sharing two delicious meals
each week with compatible
friends of my same age group.
Next week's delicious meals
will include: Tuesday, July 3,
at Heppner, burger-tamale

hot muffins and jelly, relish
