This is Tipton's community center. It houses the boys and girls club. A gymnasium with a walking track above the gym. Many banquet rooms where people have baby and bridal showers. Or family reunions. Even a food pantry for those in need.
The Mount foundation donated money for the center. I think one of the Mounts was a city judge, one was a literature teacher. That's about all I know of the Mount family.
It's always clean in this building. Where the circle is on the floor and the door is open, that's where we have bingo.
Some flags and banners hang from the high part of the ceiling.
This is an ink drawing of all the schools that used to be in our town. The one in the center was Jefferson School. This community center sit on the land where Jefferson school used to be. It's close to town. Many activities go on here. I am thankful we have such a nice place to enjoy spending time with people of our town. My sister and I played bingo today. I won a nice 20 dollar gift card for the CVS drugstore. That will come in handy .
Today is to be sunny and nice here...more rain tomorrow, Sunday and some of next week too. Still praying for the south, they are going thru so much from all the heavy rains and flooding. Be safe this weekend . XO
What a beautiful, multi-functional facility. Someone really put some thought into building it. Good that so many people enjoy it in such a variety of ways. Hooray for the Mount Family, whoever they are!ReplyDelete
I am going to look into the Mount family...to see if I can learn more. It is a wonderful place for our community. At first I was sad to lose the old school...but it has worked out okay, I guess. Blessings to you, xoxo,SusieDelete

All this talk about Bingo makes me want to play!! Today I took Mother to visit a residential place for her and they had all sorts of activities going on - including BINGO!!ReplyDelete
Linda, I really think you mom is going to like her new place...she will have privacy and yet company when she wants it. I think having the social things like games and entertainment will be such fun. I will pray for your mom to love being there. Blessings to all of you,. love, xoxo,SusieDelete
Wow! What a nice building! I love to play bingo too:) Always fun to win, especially when its something you can really use!!ReplyDelete
We're having a nice day here too, today, later tonight and tomorrow we're to get rain. We can use it though.
Gert, There's lunches here at discount prices for seniors also. I have never eaten there. I really like how clean it is there. Today (Sat) is nice here, wee bits of sun and warm temps. Tomorrow and the next few days will be rain. I hope not too much. I am praying for the south...scary what is happening there. Blessings to you, glad your family is visiting you. xoxo,Love, SusieDelete
I enjoyed your tour of the Community Center. It speaks so well of your town to have such a clean and useful space! Woo-hoo, congrats on winning the gift card! I have won a bingo only once!ReplyDelete
They will play bingo using the same card about 4 times...that way before it's over everyone wins a gift. It's usually a dollar gift form the dollar store. Then he last game is a cover all and it's a gift card most often. Only one of those. Then the seniors stay for lunch. I do not eat there. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
What a nice facility..You are lucky to have it available to you..Love the ink drawing of the schools..Glad you won the gift card..congratulations to you...Have a wonderful weekend..ReplyDelete
Thank you Missy. I have loved how clean the center is. It's nice to have a place for the children to wait for their parents after work too. There are lunches served to the seniors everyday, if they want to eat there for a minimal fee. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Very nice facility. I think I am going to check and see whether our area has a senior center and see what I can find. Bingo sounds fun. I bought a set before Christmas and we all had such fun playing the game.ReplyDelete
Nonnie, I got a smile out of your buying a game of bingo for your family...what fun. I love having a bit of fun to look forward to ...it's nothing elaborate but it's fun. My girls used to love bingo. I miss playing game with my daughters. We loved the word games , like scrabble, boggle, spill and spell. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
That's such a well maintained building. I'm happy to hear that there weren't any bingo riots. You know how those things can get out of hand.ReplyDelete
Glad you won. Two small ranch houses sit on the spot of my elementary school.
Boston Boy, They play bingo till everyone wins. I wish you could hear my sister carry on...it's like she wants to bingo first all the time. She says too many people touch everything that is a prize. (She does it too)LOL.One of our old school was turned into a place of worship...they maintain it so well. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I'm so envious, Susie. To have an indoor walking track in our community would be heaven. I've lived in towns where gyms and health centers have them. They're great! xoReplyDelete
I didn't know you like to play BINGO, Susie. It's always been a fun game for me too. What a cool ink drawing this is. I bet it was interesting to look at up close.ReplyDelete
