Our head cook, Kathy West, celebrated her one year of employment June 6. We had chocolate chip cookies as a treat. We like to celebrate and treats make it even better.

Merrill and Jean Branson ate with us June 7 with thanks to Fred Puttroff for providing transportation.

The Bransons were celebrating their 61st wedding anniversary. Merrill joked that he never wanted a divorce, but did slam the door loudly a few times in 61 years.

Marion County Department on Aging coordinator Gayla Ratzlaff gave a presentation June 12 on the results of our senior center survey.

This survey was just the Marion responses so we could see what our own group is like.

Come join us June 26. After lunch Wanda Williams will play piano in her self-described ?fast and loud? style.
