SENIOR SHOWCASE

By Shari Campbell

Celebrating the holiday season

WHAT’S HAPPENING: 

“It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go.”

There is still time to give us a try for lunch this year. Lunch is served at noon. You may dine in or get your meal packaged up to take home and enjoy. We are the best buy in town for seniors. We ask only for a $3.50 donation for your lunch. If you are under age 60, the meal cost is $5.75. You can see the menu in this column each week. Looking ahead, next week has some truly delicious meals. The menu next week features: chicken spaghetti, homemade chili, ham and asparagus roll-up and Chicken Kiev. Just call 272-3620 and sign up with Leslie.

Commodities will be distributed at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 23. You must have a 2020 Commodities Card, and you must call Della at 272-3620 before 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 22 to reserve your food.

We are celebrating this holiday season at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 23. You are all invited to our Christmas Party. Patti and the Senior Voice Committee will have plenty of fun activities and games for everyone to enjoy. I would guess that there might be some tasty treats for you to enjoy as well.

Planning ahead for December: Finney County Transit and the Senior Center will close early on Thursday, Dec. 24 at 1 p.m., after lunch is served. The last City Link route will run at noon. We will also be closed all day on Friday, Dec. 25 for Christmas Day. Looking ahead, we will be closing at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 31, for New Year’s Eve. We will be closed for New Year’s Day on Friday, Jan. 1, 2021.
