POLSON — St. Patrick’s Day is on Sunday this year, and I researched some old Irish laws concerning Monks. “A layman may have six pints of beer with his dinner. A monk shall only have three so that he will not become inebriated before evening prayers.” So practical, those Irish. Corned beef will be served at the Polson Senior Center. See the menu below. 

A head cook position is available and starts in April. Applications are now being accepted.

Applications are also being accepted for the position of director for nutrition, full or part time. Office and site management, food service experience preferred, will train.

The Senior Center is providing AARP Tax Assistance through April 15 on Mondays or Thursdays. Call for an appointment time: 10 and 11 a.m. as well as at 1, 2, and 3 p.m. Pick up your packet/forms and complete them prior to your time slot.
