It is hard to believe it’s been 11 months since our seniors have gathered inside our senior center. Almost a whole year – unbelievable! Although we continue to serve meals to those 60 or older we miss our senior center participants.
Seeing them once a day when they pick up their meal just isn’t the same. We are so excited to have a vaccine. Having this vaccine means things will return to normal soon and we can welcome our participants back into the senior centers.
We are averaging around 245 meals daily. I worried our numbers would significantly drop this winter, but surprisingly they haven’t. Congregate Meal staff have been amazing through this pandemic. They have shown up to work EVERY SINGLE DAY! Our cooking staff has been incredible. I am very grateful for each one of them and proud to be able to work with such an amazing team.
I would also like to welcome Lynn Milliner to the Congregate Meal family. Lynn has been hired as the new site coordinator at the Grayson County Senior center. We are excited to have her and I know she will do great things for the senior citizens in Grayson County. Shown in the photo is Lynn with her husband Eddie, son Cordale, and daughter Maggie.
The only requirement to join the congregate meal program is you have to be 60 or over. That is it. If you know of someone who could use a hot, nutritious meal daily please give us a call at 270-289-4885!
