Upcoming Events At New Haven Senior Center This Summer

By Harold Ray

NEW HAVEN, Mo. - Are you ready for summer?  Just in case you didn’t know it, it started officially this week.  Unofficially, it started several days ago.  Hope you are keeping cool, especially our Seniors.  If you are having trouble paying your electric bill, let someone know.

I shouldn’t have said anything a couple of weeks ago about not having any death notices.  Since that time, we have several.  Timothy Unger passed away on June 3rd, Peggy Klott, June 8th; James Rouse, June 9th; Elfrieda Allersmeyer, June 13th, and Kenneth Alberswerth June 18th.  Our thoughts and prayers to all of the families.

We still have gift cards available for purchase.  Buy them for family members or friends.  Perhaps someone would come if they were given a lunch ticket.

By: Ruth Rethemeyer

NEW HAVEN, Mo. - What are Shamrock Days?  This will be a celebration at Camp Trinity very much like our past Family Fun Days.  In an effort to share our mission we have renamed our annual event.

New Haven, MO is well known for its shamrock and Camp Trinity nearly 25 years ago began using it on their cross for the sign of the Trinity as St. Patrick did many years ago. It was in one of his sermons in which he picked up a shamrock and held it before him to illustrate the doctrine of the Trinity, three in one and one in three.
