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.

Once again the Wemberley Blue Grass Band will be on hand to provide live entertainment and to get people to kick up their boots on the dance floor. There will also be a line dance area outside for those so inclined. If dancing isnt your thing, you can also find a great deal or early Christmas gift at our Crafters Fair.

After a few hours of dancing or shopping, or both, our guests might be a tad bit hungry. Thank goodness our friends from the Gas Co. will be on hand with their mobile gas bbq. They will BBQing up some mouth-watering grub.
