Thanks to a grant from Senior Foundation of the Ozarks, our new building now has tables, chairs, dishes, silverware, a new convection oven and a 12 foot long stainless steel work table with a prep sink. The work table has been modified to include electrical outlets and new stainless steel skirting will be added.
SeniorAge AAA has assumed operation of the senior center as of March 18. They will provide the food, administrator, cook, 80 percent of our utility bill, phone, and internet service. SeniorAge provided most of the equipment in our kitchen. Our members donated a large number of utensils for the kitchen. SeniorAge has provided the balance of items needed for day-to-day operation of the kitchen.
We are actively looking for volunteers to: help in the kitchen, check people in and do other tasks required to make the new center operate efficiently. If you can volunteer even once a month it will be helpful. Call 759-9455 to get your name on our volunteer list.
We are still in need of shelving units for the dry storage room. Other things on our wish list are a griddle and a warming oven.
We are happy to announce that we received a large grant from Greene County Senior Citizens’ Services Fund. That grant was used to pay down a large portion of our construction loan. This brings us within striking distance of being fully funded. When seniors are not using the building, it will be available for community events.
