The Congregate Meals Program (CMP) Staff is hoping the groundhog is right, and that Spring is right around the corner. The sickness has been high in all counties, even though we’ve been lucky to have mild weather this winter.

Amanda Stoess, Dietetic Consultant for the Department of Aging and Independent Living, conducted the state audit on January 17th. The audits were conducted at the Grayson County site kitchen and the Griffin Manor Senior Center. Everything went smoothly and we are expecting a good report.

Due to the remodeling of the Prichard Center, our annual Senior Celebration will be earlier than usual. The Senior Celebration will be held on Thursday, March 19th, 2020. See the flyer below for more information.
