We are getting there! We’ve added bingo twice per week this month. GRAB & GO Meals—We are winding down the program as things begin to open. We are unable to take new participants at this time and hope we will be able to offer congregate meals soon. Our reimbursement for COVID expenses has ceased. Beginning in July, Grab & Go Meals will be $3 each. This allows us to cover the majority of expenses related to this program.

Bear with us! As regulations and requirements change constantly, we will work to be able to adapt and provide more program opportunities. As always, our priority is everyone’s health and safety. We look forward to seeing each and every one of you as soon as it is safe to do so.

We will be launching a new newsletter format and e-news letter later this year. Please e-mail me your e-mail address you can receive our newsletter as soon as it’s complete. It’s very exciting!

Best Wishes to All!
