We have hired a new cook and thank Ms. D for filling the position for the last few months on a temporary basis.

This is National Volunteer Month. If you, or someone you know, has volunteered at the center in past years have them call us with their name, phone contact, and any information they have about their service. This would include former board members, drivers, helpers with commodities, activities leaders, instructors or any others who have shared their time and talents. Celebrations will be at lunch time during the fourth week of April.

Wednesday is Cribbage Day! Also Scrabble, mahjongg, bridge, dominoes, backgammon, and obscure board/dice games. Some game boards are available or bring your own board game and a friend. Fun starts at 12:30 p.m.

Tax assistance is available at the senior center through April 15, sponsored by AARP. Call for an appointment time.

Save on your auto insurance by taking the AARP Safe Driver Course, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. April 23; registration is $25 ($20 for AARP members). There’s no text and it includes a lunch break.
