Once again we are at the end of another year and we all ask where did the year go? We had a lot of rain and along with that came all the flooding. Thankfully we did not lose any lives. We think we have it bad and then we see the wild fires out in California and we can say thank you that we didn’t have it any worse than we did. Let’s keep all of them in our thoughts and prayers.
I want to wish everyone a Blessed Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May you all take time to enjoy the special moments with family and friends.
This year Larry Ormson will be sponsoring the Christmas Dinner at the Elroy Senior Meal Site on Dec. 18. Make sure if you plan on attending to call 608-462-5175 to make a reservation and don’t forget to thank Larry if you see him around town. The Madrigal Choir from Royall High School will be coming to sing for everyone and to do a sing along also. They will start singing at 11 a.m. and food will be served at 11:45 a.m.
The senior bus is still doing the out of town bus trips every Friday. Check with the Mauston office at 608-847-9371 to see where they are going and to reserve a seat.
To everyone with a birthday in December have a “Happy Birthday.”
Remember that the meal sites can always use volunteers even if it is to just fill in occasionally when someone needs to be gone.
At Grace Elroy meals we continue to try and meet the nutritional needs of area seniors. We provide a hot home cooked meal for everyone that comes to the meal site and also for the home-bound seniors who can’t make it into the site. The Juneau County Senior Nutrition Program invites all seniors age 60 and older to participate in the senior dining program. Meals are served at 11:45 a.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at the Elroy Meal Site, 226 Erickson St. Elroy. Home delivered meals are available just call the meal site at 608-462-5175 to make arrangements. The suggested donation is $3.75. Bingo is played every day at the Elroy meal site starting at 11 a.m. Check with the other Meal Sites to see what activities they have going on. Come and join your friends for a warm meal, friendship and fun.
