In Melba, school is back in session, crops are being harvested, and it has that end-of-summer look outside. It makes you want to tuck in under a blanket for the winter – if it just wasn’t 90 degrees!!
This Thursday, August 21, Deputy Travis Lowber will talk to us right at the end of lunch about Fraud Prevention. His presentation will start at 12:30, immediately after the raffle drawing of the stained glass piece donated (and made) by Jerry and Connie Miller. The presentation will last about 30-45 minutes. We hope you will join us!
Some of the things we’re working on for the next few months are a flu clinic, a living will presentation, blood pressure clinics, and fund raisers. What else would you like to see happen? Call us at 495-2168 with your suggestions and ideas. You can leave a message anytime.
