Melba Valley Senior News

By Emily Craig

What a crazy winter we have had. Just when I think it’s time to put my coat away, it snows again. I am thankful for this mild winter we have had. We are now into the second semester of school, my kids are now counting down the days until spring break.

Speaking of spring, we will be having a spring dance here at the senior center at 6 p.m. Friday, April 13. We will have a variety of music, games, refreshments and some snacks. There will be a small cover charge. More details will come as we plan this fun event. We hope you will come and bring your family!

Breakfast is served 8 a.m. every Tuesday and lunch noon every Thursday. We have amazing meals for a suggested donation of $4 for 65 and over and $5 for under 65. We would love to see more people come in and eat with us.
