Hope everyone had a great Father’s Day.
This week we will have hearing aid checks with Haris Zafar at 11 a.m. June 20 along with a business meeting to include the senior center board.
June 20 also marks the first day of summer and hot weather. One way to get out of the heat is to stop by the center for a cup of coffee or even a cold glass of water and come and try us for a noon meal.
Charles Rempel will no longer collect cans but people can still drop them in the white barrels by the center’s back door and they will get picked up.
