Bauer Dick Georgie-squareAmargosa Valley is a remote field. There are no cafes or restaurants. The Senior Center serves dinners four nights a week and breakfast on Fridays. Any in the community can come; seniors have a discounted price.So, what does one do to meet people in Amargosa Valley? Eat at the Senior Center a couple of times a week. We are getting known, and the director has started coming to church. There is no entertainment in Amargosa Valley apart from school activities and some things at the community center – mainly youth-oriented. One night, after a delicious spaghetti and meatball dinner, the Senior Center had karaoke imported from Pahrump. What a hoot! We stayed and cheered but did not sing (didn’t want to drive them out). This is gaining us visibility in our community. We are finding acceptance through simple things, like stopping at the 750-piece jigsaw puzzle and finding a missing piece that no one else had found all day. It just takes spending time and caring about what the people care about.
