Why not come out to the Seniors Luncheon Social events being held in February. Join us for great food and the company of new and old friends. Community Care holds these congregate dining events throughout the County and all seniors are welcome. If you haven’t tasted the great food by Wheel House and Occasions Catering this is your chance to enjoy homemade soup, roast loin of pork with mashed potatoes, vegetables, coleslaw, rolls and butter and chocolate cake, all topped off with coffee and tea. The cost for all of this is just $10 per person. Plan to attend the event in Milford on Wednesday, Feb. 21 or in Consecon on Wednesday, Feb. 28. Both events are held at noon.
Reserve your place by the Tuesday prior at noon by calling 613-476-7493. Seniors are asked to bring their own soup bowl, plate, cup and cutlery to cut down on the clean up for our volunteers. If you can’t come to the hall for this meal it can be delivered to shut-in seniors who live near the location. If you wish to have a take-out meal please advise when you register. The price is the same for take out and eat in.
