Now that we are in February we like to think of other things besides the rain, the wet and the cold. February seems to be centered around St. Valentine’s Day, when we are reminded to love and care for ourselves and others. Blaine Senior Center is alive with exciting and interesting things to do, learn and see.

It gives opportunities to be active and to reach out to others. Many services are provided to help seniors be as active, healthy, happy and independent as possible.

Nourishing meals are served Monday through Friday. Just glancing at the choices can be a mouth-watering experience. 

The entrees include Italian veggies, mashed potatoes and gravy, Swiss steak, wild rice pilaf, sweet and sour chicken, barbeque pork ribs, sweet and sour meatballs, pot roast, delicious soup, pizza, chicken and dumplings, turkey divan, deli sandwiches, beef Stroganoff, baked squash and baked cod.
