This month we’d like to shine the light on someone few of you may have seen, but may have benefited from her volunteering. Lesia (pronounced Lisa) Alexander has been helping us out since 2020. During that time she has helped serve meals for Thanksgiving, Operation Senior Claus, and most recently, the Grab-n-Go dinners Monday thru Friday she can be helping out her sister, Mae Lucero, getting the dinners from the local restaurants, then helping to distribute them to seniors at the center. However, Leisa doesn’t just come here help to serve food. All that work can wear a person out, so when she’s not volunteering, she enjoys coming to the center’s Aerobics Program to boost her cardio. Originally from Meridian, MS, she and her two siblings came out Calif., to live with, and be raised by their big sister Mae, when their mom passed away. After she grew up she went to work for the Dept. of Corrections where she worked for 27 years before retiring. During that time she raised a son, who in turn, gave her a grandchild. Thanks Leisa for helping to ensure that our senior don’t go hungry.

Chefs...ready, set, bake! On Thursday, May 23rd at 1:30pm we will be hosting the Big Banana Bake Off. Everyone is invited to bring in their best dish, whether it be an entree, side dish, desert, or drink. However, it must have banana as one of its main ingredients.

Contestants will prepare their items at home and bring in the items by 1:15 p.m. to be admired by all and judged by a special panel of three guests. If youd like to show off your culinary skills, please R.S.V.P. at the front desk. You dont have to say what you are bringing, giving hints to the competition. So gather those starchy containers of goodness and get ready to cook.
