Why is that in the spring, 54 degrees feels very warm and yet this morning it felt very cold.

I wanted to take time today to thank all of the people at the senior center. It is quite a task to make a monthly menu and follow through on everything. My hats off to all the people who purchase a paid meal at the senior center.

Thank you for all the good food and good times we’ve had at the senior center.

One more thank you goes to Arby’s for their donation.
