Christmas celebrations aren’t just one day for us. Monday is this month’s Christian Women’s. This is open to anyone that wants to come. We do a breakfast buffet to start, followed by music and a program. Breakfast starts at 9:30 a.m. Give us a call if you are coming so we can have a count for food.

Tuesday is the Hormel Retiree’s breakfast. This month we are making bananas foster French toast. Breakfast starts at 9 a.m. Come early and sit with others that have retired to catch up, significant others are also invited. Tickets are $5 in advance or $6 at the door. Everyone is welcome.

On Tuesday, starting at noon, the Cedars of Austin is sponsoring a lunch and wrap. If you have your gifts bought and need help wrapping them, bring them in for the Cedars to wrap. While you are waiting you will be served lunch. There is no cost to you. Any donations will be given to the center. Everyone is welcome.

We look forward to seeing you at our many programs at the senior center. Don’t forget our coffee shop where every day you can have homemade soup for $1 and sandwich for 50 cents.
