Payson Regional Senior Circle
If you need a gift for that senior, or seniors in your life who are impossible to buy for, here's a suggestion. How about a year's membership to Senior Circle? The membership costs just $15 and entitles the recipient, age 50 or older, to participate in numerous social, educational, health and informational activities and programs. He or she will receive bi-monthly newsletters and the quarterly magazine, Inside Circle, will be eligible for group travel opportunities, compete in photography and writing contests, receive valuable discounts and meet and enjoy the company of other persons with similar interests. For information, contact Kathy Coombes at (928) 472-9290.
Think about it.
Don't tell God how big your problems are. Tell your problems how big God is.
