We have a lot of special activities going on this week. The Breast Care Center will be presenting for our Lunch and Learn on Thursday, July 18. We are serving homemade chocolate chip cookies and cold milk on Monday, July 22. We are fully booked for our trip to the Stauth Museum on Tuesday, July 23. Della will be distributing commodities on July 24.

It is not too late to sign up and see if you are eligible to receive this free food. Patti is planning a Summer Bash Party on July 25. Be sure to stop by and take part in these fun activities. If you haven’t stopped by recently, what better reason is there than eating a fresh chocolate chip cookie.

Safety

A word of caution as it heats up outside: It is forecast to be extremely hot every day for the next week or so (100-plus degree temperatures). Remember how to stay safe: stay hydrated, stay cool in an air conditioned area, and wear light-weight, light colored loose fitting clothes and if you have to be outside, wear a hat to shade your head, neck, face and ears. If you are looking for a place to go during the heat of the day, please stop by the Senior Center. It is nice and cool inside and we always have a cold drink for you.
