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.

With the Dog Days of August causing all our dogs to bark, we definitely needed a place to cool down. So the center came to the rescue as a part of us being an official Cooling Center. We held another one of our Ice Cream Parties.

Sponsor Laurel Brown with Home Instead Senior Care helped out by bringing Cookies and Cream ice cream for everyone. However, they had to work for it. The crowd played a bit of 50\'s & 60\'s Trivia for their scoops. Some of the answer the crowd got without much thought. Some of the others caused a bit of head scratching, while some questions left people with that deer in the headlight look.

No matter how they did they all had fun. After all, who cant have fun coming in from the 100 degree plus days into a cool building for ice cream and games? Thanks to everyone who came in to party with us. Special thanks to Home Instead Senior Care for sponsoring the event.
