Senior Center

Connie Frenette

Here are a few things to ponder. When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.

Separation anxiety happens to babies at nine months; to mothers their whole lives.

It is the wise parent that gives his child roots and wings (taken from A Box of Thoughts for Mothers Chronicle Books).

Happy Mother’s Day!

If you know of someone who has lost a child, take the time to give them a hug or listen to their story! You can’t fill the void, but you certainly can let them know that they are cared about.

The senior center recently hired two part-time homemakers that will be going into the elderly homes to assist with cleaning.

We welcome Darcy Morrow and Lisa Johnson.

Just a quick reminder that the center offices will be closed May 28, to observe Memorial Day. CAA Congregate and Home-Delivered meals are cancelled also.
