Marion senior center

We celebrated the royal wedding here by having Prince William’s cake. Virginia Downing asked Theresa Graham, our cook, to make it offering to buy the ingredients. It was a very rich chocolate concotion drizzled with chocolate syrup. I wore my own tiara to serve it and several people bowed and curtsied.

Poem in Your Pocket Day was observed April 28. Theresa Graham read about a dog named Fred.

I read, “After Forty Years of Marriage, She Tries a New Recipe for Hamburger Hot Dish.”

Joan Meyer read a poem she remembered her grandmother reciting at Christmas. Fred Puttroff promised to write a poem for next year about delivering meals on wheels.

May 2 was Lumpy Rug Day with activities to do at home.
