Those  dropping by the Senior Center have the opportunity every week to learn how to knit, crochet, make jewelry, work on a variety of crafts, along with learning how to made alcohol rubs, lotion and soaps.   They are also putting together a cookbook and a history of the families of the area.  Additionally,  they do blood pressure checks once a month and have speakers bringing up to date information on a number of subjects.

 

Plan now to stop by the Caryville Community Center next week if you live in the area and have some fun.
