If you are heading up to Garden Valley or already live here and have a special occasion, give the Senior Center a call and your specially ordered cake or other baked goods will be waiting for you when you get here.
The Garden Valley Senior Center has a new Baker and the new Bakery is already at your service. EOA Coordinator Marcie Pyorre, always one for a good idea, approached members of the board with the fundraising concept of having baked goods available for folks to pick up when the Center is open on meal days and also for pre-orders.
Rochelle Gepford specializes in cookies, bars and cakes, which will be available every Tuesday and Thursday, between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Gepford will also provide patrons with pies, wedding cakes, breads or other bakery items as special orders. Arrangements can be made for pick-up, outside of regular hours.
Expect prices to be reasonable. Hey, this is the Senior Center, which provides homey meals that you can actually afford, and Granny's Closet secondhand shop is the cat's meow in deals. $3 for a dozen cookies--take it from there.
The Center is located at 261 S. Middle Fork Road, in Crouch/Garden Valley. Phone Marcie for information and orders, at 462-3943. Breakfast is served hot at 9:30 every Thursday and Dinner is ready at 6:00 p.m Tuesdays and Thursdays, which always includes a salad bar.
Bring the whole family. Beverages and dessert are included in the price:
Breakfast: $5, adults under 60; $4 suggested donation, 60+; and kids under 12, $3.
Dinner: $6, adults over 60; $5 suggested donation, 60+; and under 12, $4.
