Ensure sales will be Monday through Friday , 8am to 11am  and then 1pm to 4pm.  (No exceptions).  I teach classes and am in charge of the lunches so I am busy from 11 to 1pm every day.  We also sell the Chuck A rama tickets the same time.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Also on Friday, December 10th we will have a special outing: "Riding around to see the Christmas lights, and then to Sizzler for dinner. We will leave the center at 5pm."  You must sign up to go because we do not know what time we will be going to eat so we can't meet you there."

On Friday, December 31st is New Year's Even.  We will be having our "NOON YEAR'S EVE"  potluck and games.  I will bring the chicken, you bring something to go with chicken and your favorite board or card game.  (Current members only).
