Hi everyone! As we pen this letter, we think about some who say the letter is too long and rambles. Well, we guess, in a way, they are right. But this may be because we are so proud of our Center. And so are the the other senior centers in the area proud of theirs. We all thoroughly enjoy what we offer our seniors. Yes, sometimes it’s a lot of work, but the more hands we have, the easier it is. So, here’s to all the Senior Centers who make our lives more interesting and fun.

Our Center will be closed on Monday, July 5, for the holiday There will be a membership meeting with elections on Tuesday, July 6, at 1 p.m. Please plan to attend. There will be updates on all the upcoming events and projects.
