We lost one of our long-time senior members last Friday (Feb. 17). Howard Brewer passed away. Our condolences to his family — he will be missed around the center. Also to the families of Mina Picard, Jim Gaston and Hank Konrad.

We had another wonderful Hank’s senior appreciation dinner last Tuesday. Good food, great prizes and great music. Thanks to everyone that helped make it a great Valentine’s Day.
