Group is a place for caregivers to share experiences, gain support

Published 11:30 am Saturday, March 9, 2019

The next Caregiver Support Group will be March 21.

Caregiver Support Groups provide the opportunity for caregivers to share their experiences, discuss their concerns, and gain support and information from other caregivers.

Meetings are held the first and third Thursday of each month at 10:30 a.m. If you are a caregiver, please join us. If you have any questions about the support group, contact Nancy Donahue at 507-433-8376.

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

Whether you’re Irish or Irish-at-heart, join us for an afternoon of fun and maybe get the luck of the Irish at noon on Friday, March 15, for a St. Patrick’s Day feast. A corn beef meal or parmesan crusted cod will be on the menu. Cost for  members is $9 and for non-members it’s $10. Bring your Irish friends and wear your green so you don’t get pinched. The Young Oldies will be here performing songs you will remember.

Entertainment is sponsored by The Cedars of Austin.

Don’t forget our coffee shop where every day you can have homemade soup for $1 and sandwich for 50 cents. On Tuesday we are having tator tot hotdish in the coffee shop for only $2. You are always welcome at the center.
