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.

Featured Activity

Back in August we hosted a Chocolate Bingo in conjunction with Liz Chavez with Inter Valley Health Plan (IVHP). Chocolate Bingo is just like normal bingo only the stakes are a little bit sweeter. The names on the board were bingo but instead of numbers they were names after various chocolates. So one had to listen for I - Godiva, B - Milk Chocolate to fill out their cards. Also there were no dobbers here. Boards were covered with m&ms, but you had to be able to withstand the desire to eat them, or you couldnt cover your board.

If one was lucky enough to hold off eating the markers, and you managed to get a bingo, winners were paid out in chocolate. So at the end, even the losers got to finally eat their markers, so that every sweet tooth was satisfied.

Thanks to everyone who showed up to play, as well as Liz Chavez with IVHP for this fun and tasty event.
