Hello April! Happy Easter!
Although we will need April showers to bring us the beautiful May flowers, let us hope we are not flooded out. The other thing spring rains sometime bring is wind and power outages.
So, time to check around the house and make sure you have batteries for the flashlights or some candles that can be carefully used if needed. Temperatures are usually a little better than in winter, but also make sure there is easy access to your extra blankets and keep some bottled water and shelf foods available too. We just never know what is coming our way do we.
The food drops for this month are CSFP (senior cheese box) is scheduled for April 20 from 10-11 a.m. The Together We Can Food Pantry drops will be on April 8 and again on April 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. These will all take place
at the fairgrounds.
The council’s monthly board meeting is scheduled for April 12 at 9 a.m. All are welcome to attend.
We are still working to help with getting vaccine registration and appointments at Rite Aid. Although, there has been quite the slowdown in availability. If you have contacted us and we have put you on our list, we are still checking several times a day for the availability of appointments and will call you if there are appointments offered. Please make sure to answer our call, we always start with the first on the list, but these appointments don’t wait.
We have received word that congregate meal sites can re-open. There are several requirements that need to be in place before that can happen. We are working on those requirements.
Reservations will be needed, and capacity will be limited. Even when re-opening occurs, we will still be offering meals at the to go window. Don’t forget to call ahead for your orders please.
The beautiful full moon will be shining down on us on April 27. Take a moment to enjoy it!
