WOODVILLE, WI – The Woodville Senior Center held a fun-filled Valentine’s Day extravaganza party on Thursday, February 14, 2019.  The Center kicked off Valentine’s Day with coffee, juice, and treats at 9:30 a.m. followed by free Bingo at 10:00 with special prizes.   At noon, compliments of the house, they served 45 senior guests a tasty nutritious meal of Chicken Alfredo, Vegetable, Salad, Garlic Bread Stick and a special dessert of fresh strawberries on cheesecake. 

As everyone dined together on Valentine’s Day, the Country Memories provided their popular old-time musical entertainment.  The group’s members, Bud and Pat Mathison and Phil Pax, have been together for several years and volunteer at community gatherings and the area care centers.  The Country Memories have once again given graciously of their time and talent to the Woodville Senior Center and it’s always a special treat to have them perform their music at the Center.

Larry Knegendorf was the emcee for the party and had Clarice Fern come forward and be seated at a place of honor to be crowned the 2019 Valentine’s Day Queen. Clarice turned 90 years young on February 18 and she has called Bingo at the Woodville Senior Center for 25 years!

Also, during the Valentine’s Day party, there were several drawings for door prizes awarded. They were given to: Dorlene Peterson, Bobbi Nelson, Dave Hegstrom, Walter Jacobson (who recently celebrated his 85th birthday), Roger Johnson, Chris Wangen and Gloria Bunnel. The lovely flower centerpieces were also drawn for and given to: Bud Mathison, Helen Mckay, Vi Roquette, Dale McKay, Les Holms, Barb Johnson, Al DeLander and Judy Johnson.

Everyone had a marvelous time at the 2019 Woodville Senior Center Valentine’s Day Extravaganza!
