The Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency Senior Center continues to provide services to its elderly clients.

Following two difficult years dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, the center was able to invite back its regular visitors for socialization, activities, exercise, and a few meals.

This year a Christmas pot luck was held for the members, with many of them bringing something to the meal. Director Nichole Schank said the members came up with the idea.

“We asked them what they wanted for Christmas, and this is what they said they would like to do,” she said.

the meal included ham, stuffing, corn pudding, green beans, dumplings, butter beans, deviled eggs and Jell-o salad, along with a variety of pies, cakes, and a cobbler for dessert.

The visitors received a gift from the center in the form of a pail filled with fresh fruits and snacks, along with other goodies.

The senior center is limited on services at this time primarily due to a lacking of transportation. Schank said all of the current guests are able to bring themselves to the center.
