Lunch is being served at the Senior Center again!  You do need to reserve your seat the day before since a limited number of participants can attend daily.  You will have your temperature taken at the door, wear a face mask and practice social distancing. Operations have changed so volunteers are vital to making this work.   If you would like to volunteer contact Lori Romero at 775 293-6900 or Randy Henefer at 775 289-2742.
