Two Rivers Senior Anchor Newsletter July, 2009 Celebrating Over 50 Years of Service to the Community Back To School An elderly couple was celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired. Holding hands, they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they’d shared, where Andy had carved “I love you, Sally.” On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armored car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up and, not sure what to do with it, they took it home. There, she counted the money: fifty thousand dollars! Andy said, “We’ve got to give it back..” Sally said, “Finders keepers.” She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their attic. The next day, two police officers were canvassing the neighborhood looking for the money and knocked on their door. “Pardon me, did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armored car yesterday?” Sally said, “No”. Andy said, “She’s lying. She hid it up in the attic.” Sally said, “Don’t believe him, he’s getting senile”. The agents turned to Andy and began to question him. He said: “Tell us the story from the beginning.” Andy said, “Well, when Sally and I were waking home from school yesterday…. The first police officer turned to his partner and said, “We’re outta here!” Wii Bowling League Organizational Meeting - Wednesday, August 12 at 1PM On August 12, anyone who wishes to be a member of the WII Bowling League should attend an Organizational Meeting at the Senior Center.
