The Friendship Meal Site at the Senior Center, 907 N. 10th St., serves well-balanced meals at noon Monday through Friday. For a suggested contribution of $3, come and enjoy a balanced meal with friendly fellowship. Reservations are not required unless your group is more than four. We are able to accommodate groups, just call Carol at 272-3620 and make the reservation at least 24 hours in advance.

Starting June 1, the ladies in the kitchen added "Fresh Fruit Fridays." Fruit, along with a variety of vegetable selections, from the salad bar are offered on Fridays. Remember the Senior Center this summer. Donations/contributions of fresh fruit or vegetables from your gardens will be proudly served and enjoyed.

Friendship Meals has a new staff, which the Council Chairperson, Charles Stones, would like to introduce: Carol Wigner, site manager; and Rindi Collins, assistant site manager. The ladies would like to meet you and invite you to join them for lunch. Check the menu and plan to have lunch with us soon.
