For those who need a last-minute gift, we have meal tickets to purchase. They make great gifts.

Our Christmas dinner was Dec. 21 and we will be closed Friday, Dec. 24.

Volunteers are needed from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to help set tables and then clean up and help with dishes after lunch. Volunteers get lunch free the day they help.

We encourage anyone who would like to help as a volunteer to come into the center or call.

The next fundraising event is at 6 p.m. Feb. 21 at Milk and Honey Bed & Breakfast. The cost is $100 a person. We had such a great turnout in December, we are going to do another one. Call for information.

I want to thank all our volunteers, ?Meals on Wheels? drivers and head cook for making our senior center a good place for meals and fellowship.

A big ?thank you? to the anonymous donation we received. It will be a blessing to our center.

The center is in need of a television. Our old one gave out. Anyone who can help us out would be appreciated.

We wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
