Ecumen Bethany Community to host open house

September brings more than fall and back to school. It also brings National Day Services Week. The week of September 17-21, Ecumen Bethany Community Day Service program will host a variety of theme days including Huck Finn; Minnesota Twins; Hook, Line and Sinker; 50's and Fall Harvest.

The public is invited to an open house on Friday, September 21 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Those in attendance will enjoy polka music, refreshments and fellowship.

This open house is an opportunity to learn more about Day Services, which assists seniors to remain in their homes. For some, there is a primary care giver who may need a break to care for themselves, to go to an appointment, rest or go shopping. For those that live alone, Day Services offers a life enriching, social setting.

The open house will take place at 1010 Lark Street, Alexandria, in the lower level of Winona Shores. For more information call Carla at (320) 763-2181 or
