Senior news for May 9, 2018

Arlee By Bette Samsel

ARLEE – Please join us for a special Mother’s Day prime rib dinner at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 12. May is a big birthday month at our center, so in addition to celebrating Mother’s Day, and to celebrate any May birthdays among our guests for the dinner, we will have a lovely birthday cake, and sing Happy Birthday to all. Just for fun, we’re asking everyone who wishes, to wear their craziest hat to dinner. No prizes, just to make for some levity and laughter in the gathering. I’ve never been to a craziest hat dinner, but they tell me it’s a hoot. Come and see for yourself. Meals are served at the Arlee Senior Center every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at noon. Evening meals are also served at 6 p.m. on the second and fourth Saturdays. All meals served with an entrée, vegetable, and/or fruit, buns or rolls, salad, dessert, coffee, tea, milk, etc..
