Marcee’s Corner

December is an exciting month for us: we hope to open our new senior dining café!  There are still a couple of construction projects to be completed, including the installation of the hood above the range we will use for cooking classes and demonstrations, and the heat lamps for keeping meals warm.

What will the café mean to seniors in our community? The café will provide an additional dining site, extended dining hours, and some new menu choices.  The dining room will be open for lunch service from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.  The café will also have some menu choices where a senior can choose the traditional senior meal or a combination of soup, salad or sandwiches.  We are so pleased to offer these options!

We hope to have the senior café open no later than December 19, when the Richland dining center will  be closed for a week for floor refinishing.

Another change coming our way is the move of our Pasco dining center.  The City of Pasco has sold the Senior Center building to Pasco School district.  The last I heard, the building will be used for an early childhood education center.  The City is remodeling and opening a triple-wide mobile building that will become our new Pasco dining center as soon as it’s ready.  Goal date for relocation is the first week of December.  We’ll announce more details as they become available.

All of us here at Meals on Wheels and Senior Life Resources want to wish you and those you care about a very happy Holiday Season!
