I’m sure it’s safe to say we are all wishing 2021 is a better year. COVID-19 vaccines are rolling out so we are very hopeful to be opening back up sometime this year.

I thought you might like to meet the people working behind the scenes at the Senior Center and Mini Bus who have been tirelessly working to provide Grab & Go meals, delivering meals and providing transportation to doctors’ appointments and getting prescriptions. As of December 31, we prepared 14,208 Grab & Go meals since mid-March. We are averaging about 90 meals per day and delivery to 55 different residents within our community.

We miss everyone so much and looking forward to getting somewhat back to normal.

Warm Wishes for a Bright, Shiny and Healthy New Year!
