Fund Raiser: A fund raiser is being sponsored by the Soup Kitchen for Kenny Piapot, who is experiencing some major medical setbacks. Kenny was an employee of the Soup Kitchen and a former worker here at the Senior Center. The fund raiser will be May 28 from 4 until 7 at the Eagles. They will be serving Indian Tacos. Individuals wishing to bring side dishes should contact the Soup Kitchen. Everything is being donated and done by volunteers so all money will go toward helping with Kenny’s expenses. We hope to see you there.
Reopening: With the increase of COVID-19 cases in Hill County, we are delaying the opening of the center until this once again stabilizes. The reopening plan has been taken to the commissioners for their perusal. When we are able to open a lot of things will have to change. Upon entering the building, you will have to wear a mask and your temperature will be taken at the door. The number of occupants in the building will have to be limited. We will be continuing the grab and go meals for those unable to eat at the Center.
Transportation: The Senior Center is providing medical transportation only. Remember to call ahead for Friday’s appointments. Monday and Thursday rides have to be worked around grocery delivery.
Congregate meals: We are still continuing to provide meals at the Hill County Senior Center as “grab and go meals” while we are still closed. Of course, this is in addition to the Meals on Wheels program. If you would like to pick up a meal, please be sure to call the Center before 10 a.m. to order your meal through the kitchen. Your meals may be picked up at the center from 11:45 until 12:15 M-F. You may order a meal for one day or put in your order for the entire week, whatever is more convenient.
