Isanti Dining provides wonderful opportunities for seniors

Helen Remmers
Volunteer and Sub. Site Coordinator

There is a wonderful opportunity for Seniors in Isanti who can gather together on Monday and Wednesday to receive or contribute to some of the best opportunities in the area at the Isanti Community Center at 11 a.m.

Gathering together for fellowship with friends, meeting new friends, sometimes receiving educational opportunities regarding health, nutrition, information regarding services available in our area for Seniors, Bingo and other entertainment, with a nutritional meal served at noon by faithful volunteers.

Presently we are in need of additional committed volunteers willing to spend an hour or two helping to achieve our friendly atmosphere as we work together to serve the needs to fulfill this worthy time with other Seniors. Any questions regarding these opportunities can be answered by calling Edie, 763-689-5992.

Many thanks to Tammy Cramer, Legal Aid, for her presence and information in January.

The first Wednesday of each month is “Pie of the Month” Day.  Come join us to start February with Apple Cherry Pie for dessert on Wednesday the First.
