On Wednesday the Douglas Senior Center held its April birthday dinner. The room was decorated for Easter with Easter treats for all.  Birthday people with their guests were Gail Stolz and his guests son, Larry, and daughters, Diane and Jean; Nance Christiansen with guests husband, Richard, and Lester and Georgia Languis. Entertainment was games which involved jelly beans, a relay race and guessing how may green ones were among the many in the plastic egg. Birthday cakes were supplied by Nancy Christiansen, Syracuse Kitchen and Roxane Laschanzky. Blood pressures were taken, courtesy of Good Samaritan of Syracuse, by Janelle Werner. Roxane’s helper serving was Twila Olson.


Married couples share a lot of things but Ken and Beverly DeRoe are among the few that share a birthday week.  They have birthdays seven days apart. There will be some celebrating at 1319 S. 14 Rd. (Douglas, 68344) this week.


Easter was an opportunity to have a gathering at many homes.  Merlin and Connie Hartman hosted Lisa Hartman and Patty Odell of Bellevue. The afternoon was spent acquainting the guests with the Hartman’s new dog, a St. Bernard. Later, time was spent on the phone with Joel Hartman, Anna and Jack from Torrington, Wyo.
