June has arrived and oh, how we welcome this special time of year. Our beautiful Northwest corner takes on that special charm for which it is known.
June brings sunshine, flowers, greenery, more energy and things to do.
Blaine Senior Center remains a welcoming meeting place for the community and a place for the community’s seniors to find fun, fellowship and well-prepared nourishing lunches, served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The price for these meals is $6 to anyone under the age of 60 and for 60+ the price is a donation. No one over the age of 60 is required to pay, as this is a federally subsidized program. You do not have to be a member to join us for lunch or to attend our lunch entertainment.
There are numerous noon programs, which can start a little early, so we recommend getting here by 11:45. We wouldn’t want you to miss out on any of them.
