Shocking though it is, September is almost gone. We’re staying so busy as the days fly by. Our partnership with Heineberg Senior Community Center is a heartwarming one as “Support Buddies” continues to match volunteers with seniors who need anything from an occasional phonecall to weekly grocery deliveries.
And planning has started for our annual Holiday Dinner on Christmas Day. Because of COVID, we will NOT have the sitdown dinner at the Elks Club, but will deliver meals (and giftbags, but please don’t tell any of our diners!) all over the county to anyone 50 years and older. Age Well takes reservations (from Monday, November 30, through Friday, December 18) and produces our route maps, Burlington School Food Project’s staff and families cook and package the meals, Penny Cluse Café makes the lasagna and other food, Temple Sinai organizes most of the volunteer drivers, and many other businesses and volunteers pitch in to help. We’ll have more specific details soon.
In these uncertain times, I am so grateful to the people who are helping each other out. We’ll get through it! Stay safe and healthy, dear ones.
