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

Ol Blue Eyes was back at the center, much to the delight of a sold out crowd, for another Dinner Show. Michael Sinatra crooned oldies but goodies. While our chefs were busy preparing an Italian dinner for the crowd, Michael sang to an audience as hungry for his songs, as they were for dinner. We call him the Chairman of the Board, he also sang the hits of Tony Bennett, Dean Martin, and many others.

While popular with everyone, he is always especially popular with the ladies. A few lucky ones came up front for a personal crooning. One poignant moment was when Jack & Regina Milke, celebrating their anniversary, did a special dance.

Thanks to our volunteers, Aneta Giltner, Dianne Kassotis, Theresa Rago for helping serve dinner and drinks to everyone. Special thanks go out to PrimeCare for sponsoring this great night out!
