This month we’d like to shine the light on someone who really stepped it up during the COVID-19 shutdown. Mae Luerco had been volunteering her time in the food program before the shutdown, coming in and accepting donations, taking down names, and checking membership. She would also come in early and before the rush of the crowd, to help with setting up, cleaning tables, vacuuming, and emptying the trash. Once the shutdown happened as our lunch program evolved while still keeping the food program, Mae went into overdrive. While others stayed home, Mae came in 5 days a week to help package and pass out the lunches, making sure all the health regulations were maintained. She would then stay after to help out with the Walmart Food Program, unloading the food, separating and sorting, then handing that out as well. Again, once she was done, she would help clean up and take down the area. During all this, her perpetual smile and sweet attitude never wavered. Thanks Mae for making sure our seniors got something to eat.

As with most birthdays, its a time to get together with family and friends, eat, and celebrate. Americas birthday is no different, so to celebrate its 235th, we invited over 150 of our friends for a party! We got the party started a little early, having it on a Friday, so we would continue partying with other friends over the weekend, before the big party on the 4th.

It was a fairly warm day for bbqing, but fortunately for us we chef Marty Steinbrecher on hand to flip burgers in the heat while guests got to sit in the air-conditioned dining room with a cool drink.

Wed like to thank everyone who showed up for this special birthday lunch, especially those who R.S.V.P.d giving us a chance to order enough food, as well as those who helped us to serve. Wed also like to show our appreciation to Kaiser Permanente for sponsoring the 4th (1st) of July bbq.
