After the noon meal on Monday, we will have games and fellowship.

Bingo is Wednesday after lunch and on Friday, Feb. 20, is ?Show and Tell.?

Our birthday dinner is Monday, Feb. 23.

We hope others will join us soon at the center.

A breakfast fundraiser is planned from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 28.

The meal will include waffles and Hillsboro sausage for $6. It will be a good meal and a lot of fun, and we hope to see you for breakfast and fellowship.

Please let us know if you can help from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Anyone who helps will get their meal free that day. We have great fellowship and a lot of fun.
