Our cooks have 36 years combined service as professional cooks. We think they do a good job. Bonnie Evans, our administrator, has been here 19 years. Congratulations to our own Ruth Barrett for receiving the President’s Volunteer Service Award for volunteering with the Missouri CLAIM portion of the Medicare program. Ruth not only helped people here in Douglas County, but made trips to Christian and Greene Counties to assist there, culminating in more than 100 hours. We appreciate Ruth, for all she does.
We’re busy in tax season now and can assist you with property tax rebates or federal and state returns if you are 60 or over. Please call for an appointment. No walk-ins please!
We appreciate Mike and Charlotte Bock, who have stepped up as volunteer drivers for homebound meals.
Until next week, have a good one!
