ROCK A THON fundraiser at the Senior Center The Long Prairie Senior Citizens Center will have a ROCK A THON fund- raiser at the Center (50 3rd St N) on Saturday, July 29th. The hours are: 2 PM through 5:30 PM. We will have several ROCKERS, door prizes, pie and ice cream social and other activities during this event. We are asking for donations (individuals and/or businesses). Donations can be sent to PO Box 33, LP OR give Jody a call to have your donation picked up.
We recently hired new site managers and are trying to have more activities for seniors in and around Long Prairie. We have come up with several ideas but naturally need up front funds to make them happen.
Our Special ROCKER at this event is: Mary Beth Larson Roe. Mary Beth’s family moved to Long Prairie in 1964. She attended school in Long Prairie and graduated in 1977. Her husband (Mark Roe) is from Grey Eagle. Mary Beth has been on QVC for 30 years.
If you are willing to rock for 15-30 minutes or wish to nominate someone to rock, please contact Jody Bebault at 320 491 2160 or leave a message at the Center (732-2282).
Thank YOU for donating and supporting Long Prairie Area Seniors. We hope you can join us on July 29th.
