Happy New Year to all. We love you and we want to say how much we appreciate our volunteers, diners and friends whom we deliver meals to. We look forward to continue seeing you in the new year.

Let’s make a New Year Resolution to eat at our Peabody Senior Center, as many meals as you can and maybe even volunteering in the kitchen or delivering meals at least a couple of times a month. Wouldn’t that be a great way to start out the new year?
