Many players come early and eat lunch, which is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.. Volunteer Gordy Kuehne has the ideal job, working with an all female kitchen detail. Nancy Allen was on duty this date as well.   

The Senior Center is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. There is  so much going on in this active  community, call the center 1-507-433-2370 if you have questions. Volunteers occupy the reception desk daily, they can answer your questions or will find someone who can help you. More card games are going on, Stitching Bees are on Wednesdays and early morning finds the Wood Carvers busy with their crafts.
