Senior Center DINNERS will begin again this Wednesday, September 5, at 6:00 p.m. Mitch Ignatich has been re-hired as cook. Board president, Ron Richter says, "Mitch's previous cooking is his recommendation. We are happy to have him back at the Center.”

Mitch Ignatich is back at the Center.

The menu for Wednesday is Roast Beef, Mashed Potatoes w/Gravy, Green Beans, Salad Bar & Rolls, and Ice Cream Sundaes for dessert. Friday, September 7, dinner will be Roasted Chicken, Baked Potatoes, Carrots, Salad Bar with Rolls, and Chocolate Cake. Wednesday, September 12, come for Baked Tilapia, Garlic Pasta, Corn, Salad Bar w/Rolls, and Pineapple Upside-Down Cake.

Meals on Wheels are available, as are To-Go meals ($6). Prices include all beverages: $5, 60+; $6, under 60, except for under 12--kids are $4.

Thursday morning BREAKFASTS will begin at 9:30 on September 13, so start calling your buddies and get here for that meeting over coffee you've been planning to have.

Judy Delvalle is busy getting trained by CCOA
 and is already working hard in the office.
We may also occasionally find her in the kitchen.
The Center is happy to announce that the board has recommended to CCOA the hiring of Judy Delvalle for the position of Coordinator.

Board President, Ron Richter, says, “What impressed the Center into recommending Judy was her extensive knowledge in technology and computer skills, her experience with clerical bookkeeping and her experience in all areas of restaurant management. She’s also the wife of the Fire Chief, so we will be well protected!”

Exercise class with Ione has made it through the heat and fire and is still kickin’ every Monday and Wednesday.  It is free, easy and fun and get this—every first Monday, bring a dish for a potluck afterwards. (Sept will be on 2nd Mon). It’s a small group, which makes it intimate, but there is room for more. 3:30 p.m., wear loose clothing.

Judy Delvalle is already thinking, “Senior Center, Senior Center...”, and she wants me to remind you that it’s never too early to start planning your holiday events at the Center. We have great rental prices, so check us out. Remember, our chairs are for rent too and they are a hot property right now.

Granny’s Closet has early Fall apparel on the racks so it's time to shop for the family--all clothing is gently-worn and donated by our generous patrons. Granny comes up with unique merchandise, always making it worth your time to stop in. Currently, there is a drum set priced well below its value, in case you know of any budding musicians. Come by if you are a chess player—she has a spiffy hand-painted large chess set...and button collectors may be interested in her collections.

Granny’s is open Fridays, 1-5 and Saturdays, 10-4.

Board prez, Mr. Richter, says, “It is also very important that the Center has some volunteers that can be called on if there is a problem and the cook is unable to come for a meal. If that happens, we will need to call on a volunteer to come in and cook the meal for that night. I know it sounds like a lot of work, but the easy menu will already be planned, with the food taken out of the freezer and ready to cook. An assistant cook has been hired and comes in around 4:00, so there is help. Between the two of you, the meal will be easy. If interested, please call the Center.

The Center is located at 261 S. Middle Fork Road and we can be reached at 208-462-3943 or We are the Center for all ages and welcome everyone—be on the look-out for our new hours soon.
