Seniors enjoying coffee gatherings, with more events being planned

The newly founded Seniors Committee held their second coffee/tea and homemade baking last Tuesday, January 16. Although the thermometer was reading extremely cold, about 35 people made the effort to attend. Many cups of hot coffee/tea were enjoyed. One could hear the chatter of people eagerly conversing. I think everyone left a little more lighthearted and happy that they came.

There will be a coffee/tea gathering for seniors on Tuesday, January 30 from 1-3 p.m. at the Devlin Hall.

On Saturday, February 10, there will be a Seniors breakfast from 9 a.m. to noon. Pancakes,eggs, bacon, ham and beverages make up the menu.

On Saturday, March 9, there will be a potluck lunch for seniors from noon- 2p.m.

All events take place at the Devlin Hall. Hope to see all seniors out.

More information to follow.

Women: “Restaurant bills are designed to be pain by men that is why it is called men-u”.
