One of the hardest things about COVID was the sense of isolation that many people have felt. That's why I am so pleased to see that Friends in Action has resumed their Senior Lunches every Tuesday at 12 Noon.

The lunches are served at the Moore Community Center in Ellsworth across from Knowlton Park. The cost of the lunches are only $4.00.

The lunches are nutritious, delicious, inexpensive and more importantly a chance for seniors to get together in an airconditioned setting and meet new friends or catch up with old friends!

The lunches have proven to be so popular that Friends in Action is asking that you let them know by Friday at 5 p.m. that you will be attending the Tuesday lunch so that way they have enough food prepared and place settings set. You can either let them know at the lunch or by giving them a call at 664-6016

Here are the menus for August

  • August 2 - Cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, pickle, potato salad, diced peaches, dessert
  • August 9 - Stromboli, carrots, watermelon, dessert
  • August 16 - Chicken Alfredo, bread sticks, broccoli, pineapple tidbits, dessert
  • August 23 - Chicken, broccoli, cheese croissant, corn, applesauce, dessert
  • August 30 - No meal - Meals will resume on Tuesday, September 6th.
