The "Good Times Place" is a group of Cherokee County senior community members who gather to share and enjoy each others' interests and hobbies.
Over the past few months, the group has had activities like bingo, hobby/craft supplies, and socials.
Since September there have been potluck dinners and card games; and shuffleboard and bingo for those who would like to stay and enjoy each other's company. November has kicked off with bridge, a 500 Club, Shuffleboard and woodcarving. Plus, on Nov. 5 and Nov. 19 ,from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Shirley's "Big Band Sound" will be entertaining the group with dance music at the Cherokee Community Center.
There is an "open door policy" at The Good Times Place, and anyone with a hobby is welcome to sign up for a month to showcase their talents and talk to the people in attendance about why they do and how they do their hobby.
Nov. 12 will be a busy day at The Good Times Place, starting with dessert and coffee at 9:30 a.m., followed by shuffleboard at 10 a.m. At 11:30 a.m. there will be a bake and craft sale, and a potluck dinner will be served at noon. Nancy Nelson of Nelson's Sewing will be the guest speaker during the potluck dinner. Bingo and wood carving will follow at 1 p.m.
In October, one of the featured programs at The Good Times Place, on the lower level of the Community Center, was with Sarah Boldt, who taught a session on pumpkin painting and decorating for Halloween.
