The Island Luau planned for tomorrow has been canceled due to unexpected circumstances. We will plan to do this another time. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Since you won't be able to eat some delicious Webb's Food Crew roasted pork and drink virgin pina coladas, come instead to our annual Tailgate Party Sept. 27. This day begins with a collection of vintage cars in our south parking lot starting at 10 a.m. Come see the "old beauties" and stay for a free lunch provided by Dr. Zef and Vie Arroyo.

Tickets are required for the free lunch so drop by the senior center to pick up a ticket. On the menu for the free lunch are chicken strips, potato salad and fruit salad for dessert. Bring a nonperishable item for Emmaus House.
