MIO – Welcome May!
So nice to see things start to bloom and become green again.
We are truly appreciate of the ongoing community support for the Oscoda County Senior Center through this roller coaster of a year. Whether it was in the donation of some sort (loan, closet supplies, offers of volunteer help if needed, food, Christmas box supplies, etc), we are grateful to know so many care about our seniors as much as we do.
We’re very happy about finally being open for congregate meals again. We want to thank the community members who continue to order meals to go as well.
Just a few dates to note this month:
- June 4 – National Teachers Day
- May 6 – National Nurses Day
- May 15 – Armed Forces Day
- May 31 – Memorial Day
These are 3 service professions that always deserve praise, but with all they have helped others deal with through this past year I wish we could give each and every one of them a medal.
May is also the month that we appreciate our Mothers. Happy Mother’s Day May 9 to all the moms out there and the dads who have had to be both.
We would also like to congratulate our Fairview and Mio High School graduates.
Food drops this month include the CSFP (senior cheese box) on
May 18 from 10-11 a.m.; and Together We Can Food Pantry drops May 6 and 20 from 12:30 p.m. till the food runs out. Both are at the Oscoda County Fairgrounds. TEFAP (every three month box) is slated for May 12 at the Senior Center.
The council’s monthly board meeting is scheduled for May 10 at 1 p.m. All are welcome to attend.
