Thanks again to all of our many volunteers here at the center. We could not do it without you.

We celebrated April birthdays last week with Robena Miller being our oldest woman and Jay Wright our oldest man.

We still have an Autoharp for sale. If you would like to add this vintage instrument to your collection, give us a call and make an offer.

We will be having a representative from the Care Improvement Plus program speaking on Thursday, May 9,  at 10 a.m.

Be sure and join us as we honor our mothers on Friday, May 10,  at 11:30 a.m. We will have punch and cookies and we will have the Mother’s Day photos ready to pick up.

Our next movie will be another Robin Williams classic, Patch Adams, at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14.

Our next dance will be May 10 featuring Burning Daylight. The doors open at 6 p.m. for some meet-and-greet time and the band starts at 7 p.m. There is a $5 admission at the door.
