Join Isanti Senior Dining for exciting activities in August

Volunteer, Isanti Senior Dining

Reality is some times hard to admit but eventually we have to face up to it. The passing of time is one of those realities that is difficult for me to accept as the days seem to race by one after another. Is that a problem only the elderly have? How quickly Thanksgiving and Christmas come now. It took so long for their arrival when we were young. The best way to handle it, I’ve found, is to enjoy each day to the utmost.

We have so much to be thankful for and meeting seniors on Monday and Wednesday at the Isanti Community Center for fellowship and a noon meal is always one to be appreciated.
