We couldn’t have such an awesome place for our seniors without volunteers that give their time, money and skills. Thank you for making a difference!   Thanks Judy Nelson for cleaning tables each afternoon and making sure the dining area is spiffy!   I also need to mention Ray Davila, Jim Parry and Earlynn Betsill for helping unload our freight.   These are all a valuable service for our center.
