We were closed two days last week because of the cold temperatures. Remember to always watch the news stations to see if we are closed. Channel 12 always has the announcements.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, but we were wanting to keep everyone safe.

Come in for a cup of hot coffee and a great meal and fellowship.

We encourage everyone to attend our programs and enjoy a hot meal too.

We also want to thank our staff and volunteers for getting out and the Meals on Wheels drivers during those cold, slick days.

Beginning at 9 a.m. Feb. 24, the center will offer foot care. Anyone interested can call for an appointment.

Tickets are still available for the Feb. 21 fundraising event at Milk & Honey Bed and Breakfast. The event begins at 6 p.m. and tickets are $100 per person.
