Ruth Dalhin, a longtime member, friend and volunteer, passed away suddenly last week. We were all saddened by the news. She will be greatly missed around the center. Our condolences to her family. There will be a memorial at the center at a later date.

Marvel Heatly was the winner of the gift basket last Friday. Enjoy the goodies.
I forgot last week to thank everyone that helped put together the Hank’s Harvest Foods senior appreciation dinner. It was great as always, and a special thanks to Jimmy for doing this every year, to Terry Hardesty and band for the great music, and all the business that donated gifts, and all the helpers. Thank you. We look forward to it every year.
We will be marching into March — lets hope the snow doesn’t follow.
