Wow, what a couple busy weeks we’ve had! But they were also successful weeks. One of our regular center members won the Ruger 10-22 rifle in the raffle held at the car show. And it’s looking like we made between $3,000 and $4,000 dollars on the event! Thanks to anyone who helped in any way. In an earlier article, I mentioned that it takes a community to keep a center open, and you are proving that!
We’ve also had our regular Food Pantry, a group from the Veterans’ Home in Boise for breakfast, and the Class of ’54 for lunch.
May 20, don’t forget to vote here at the center if that’s your polling place. Wherever your polling place is, please go out and make you choices known.
The lecture by Reese Leavitt for the Melba Historical Society ran into some snafus and has been rescheduled for May 22 after lunch. Reese’s father was a long-time blacksmith in the Melba area, so I’m sure there will be lots of good tales to be heard. Come and support the center and the Historical Society on that day by having lunch and staying for the lecture!
Coming up on June 14, which will be here before we know it, we will have our Food Pantry from 10-4:00, but we will also have a YARD SALE from 9-3:00! We are looking for donations of good usable items for our yard sale. Look around your house over the next few weeks and see what you can live without. We would love to have it. Call us at 495-2168 and let us know what you have. If no one answers, please leave a message with your name and phone number so we can get back with you.
