Senior Meals at Community Center

Every weekday aat 11am at the Community Center across from the school. There is a ONE DOLLAR fee. That is it.  Lots of local seniors show up there and enjoy a nice meal and some neighborly talk. The program is run by the county.  I am pretty sure you do NOT have to be 65.  The  website explains the center is open from 9am to Noon.   CLICK HERE for COUNTY Program.  Check out more links and a calendar of events at
