Mitzi Bumpus in studio, November 28, 2017
Mitzi Bumpus, Aging Coordinator of the Frank P. Giannini Senior Citizen Center, was in studio Tuesday morning to talk to WPKY about upcoming events at the center.
Mitzi reminded listeners of several things the center offers, including daily lunches at 11:30AM, bible studies on Tuesdays, and Bingo on Thursdays. She also mentioned that Ashley White, from the UK Extension Office, comes to the center once a month to give a presentation on ways to make foods more nutritious and that on the third Friday of the month the center offers free legal aid at 10AM. Mitzi suggested that anyone who plans on coming for the free legal aid call the center at 270-365-7446 so that they can put you on the list. Mitzi also reminded listeners that anyone who is planning on coming to lunch call a day ahead so that they know how many to prepare for. She did say that they do make extra meals for walk-ins but that they prefer the regulars call in advance. She also said that the center does deliver to people who can’t get out. If anyone would like to receive a homebound meal you can call Mitzi and she would set it up through the PADD’s office in Hopkinsville.
Mitzi then told listeners of some upcoming events at the center. On Wednesday, December 6th, the senior citizens will be taking a trip to the Kentucky Opry for the Country Christmas Show. Then on Tuesday, December 12th, they’ll be taking a shopping trip to Paducah for those who aren’t able to get out and shop alone. The center will then have it’s annual Christmas lunch on Thursday, December 21st, and anyone who wishes to come does need to call the center in advance. The following day, on Friday, December 22nd, they’ll have their Annual Country Ham Breakfast. Each year the ham is donated by Rodney and Margaret Heaton and the center is able to offer the meal for free. The breakfast is open to all in the community and will begin at 9AM on the 22nd. As with other meals there, Mitzi asks that if you plan on attending you call in advance so that they know how much food to prepare.
Mitzi then told listeners that the center will be closed the week of Christmas, however they will be open that Thursday, December 28th.
