McK SENIOR CENTER: Cheap firewood; Farmer’s Market underway

I just got a call about the annual senior firewood program voucher sale this year. It will be held on Thursday, July 25, here at the McKinleyville Senior Center. This is an opportunity to get mckseniorcenterbox.discounted firewood from the Humboldt Sheriff’s Work Alternative Program. Watch for more information regarding the requirements and hours they will be here. I will put it in this article when the date is closer, the time has been finalized and I have more information.
Fran’s luncheon mini meal for Thursday, June 20 will be chicken casserole and bread for $2. The mini meal is served from 11 a.m. until we run out or 1 p.m., whichever happens first.
The McKinleyville Farmers Market started June 12. I went over to see what was being offered. There were only about 5 booths but I can tell you from experience the beets and sugar peas were really good..
Just a reminder – the Regular Center Board Meeting will be held on Friday, June 28. Everyone is welcome to attend. We meet in the Senior Room at Azalea Hall at 10 a.m. This is your chance to have your input considered for how the center is run.
The end of the month luncheon will be held on Wednesday, June 26 at noon. Jean and the Crew will be serving Sloppy Joes, potato salad, baked beans and dessert for only $4. Please call 839-0191 Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to reserve your spot. This will be Jean’s last meal as the cook.
Come to the center and check out our book selection. We recently received 4 totes full of books. We offer books for 10 cents each and variety is extensive.
We wish a speedy recovery to John, our bread pick-up man. He fell a couple of weeks ago and landed in the hospital. I understand he has been transferred to the St. Joes Rehab Center in Eureka. I’m sure he would appreciate visitors if you are in the area. A special thanks also goes out to Don who is covering in John’s absence.
Thank you to everyone who purchased or provided plants for our plant sale. It was a great success this year. We couldn’t have done it without your assistance.
