The Citizen’s Center will be closed on Good Friday, April 10.

The Citizen’s Center will be receiving new carpet in a couple of weeks and may have to cancel the noon meal for a day or two. We will not cancel the home delivered meals. Our homebound clients will receive their meals as usual. We will try our best to give the clients who eat lunch at the Center on a daily basis as much warning as possible.

The monthly birthday party was last Wednesday. We celebrated with a great lunch and entertainment by Margie Hartfield from Stephenville. Ruth Harris, Betty Black, and Mary Baker were present to celebrate their March birthdays. Betty Black won the prize for the oldest birthday honoree.
