As winter approaches, it brings bad weather over the holidays. Make sure there are shelf-stable meals available at your house in case the Senior Center would be closed due to inclement weather. Also, the meal deliverers appreciate when they have a clear path from their car to your door and would like to say thank you in advance for keeping their safety in mind. One Call Now will alert you what actions to take during level 2 and level 3 snow emergencies.
A special thanks is extended to Wauseon Middle School National Junior Honor Society and Joy Hutchinson for another year of their help at the Veterans Breakfast. Thank you, also, to the other volunteers who aided at the Veterans Breakfast; it was a huge success!
