The first item in today’s column is a correction from last week. This Saturday, June 14, is the food pantry at the center, but the time was wrong in last week’s column. The food pantry will be held its regular hours of 1:00 p.m. to 4 p.m., rather than starting at 10:00 a.m. as was stated last week. We have a very good variety and some great items for our pantry this time, so we look forward to seeing you there. And remember – it is the regular time of 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.
Also Saturday, June 14, are the Melba Community Yard Sales. We will be holding one at the senior center from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. We’ve received donations for the sale in addition to what we already had, so we should have lots of item to offer for sale. We plan to hold the sale in our common dining area, as the food pantry will be in the back room. You can either come to the door on the east end of the building or the glass double doors on the south side (the main entrance). We could still use volunteers to help sell at the yard sale, so call 495-2168 if you’re interested in helping. Leave a message and we’ll get back with you or call Thursday while someone is here all day.
Before we realize it, July 4 will be here bringing in another Melba Olde Time July 4th celebration. We plan to serve our usual chicken dinner with all the trimmings and we have a quilt raffle also. The quilt is a beautiful “Ripples” pattern in reds and browns, donated by The Bluebird Quilt Studio at 1309 2nd St. So. in Nampa, and Marilyn Nelson. It is really a beautiful quilt and tickets are selling for $1 each or 6 for $5.00. You can get them at the senior center or grab one of our members and let them know you want some. You don’t need to be present to win.
