The produce keeps coming in, including beans one day, which we’ve never received before. We hope there’s a few more weeks of tomatoes and cucumbers, too.

We welcomed the Lunch Bunch on Sept. 5. These women really enjoy each other’s company, reminiscing and catching up on their lives.

The Sept. 6 program was given by Dawn Miller of Angels Care. She talked about falls and demonstrated the proper use of a cane. She also brought us cookies.

Join us Sept. 20, Senior Center Day. We will have election of officers.
