Who couldn’t enjoy a break from the hectic pace of life? Wednesday starts our summer of picnic’s in the lot. Last summer we had a great time sitting outside in the fresh air with good friends and good conversation.

This month we will be grilling up burger or brat, chips, beverage and dessert for only $5. Stop by any time from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. We would love to see you there. If it happens to be raining we can always go inside.

Don’t forget our coffee shop where every day you can have homemade soup for $1 and a sandwich for 50 cents. Tuesday we will be having chow mein hotdish in the coffee shop starting at 11:30 a.m. for $2. You are always welcome at the center.
