Another good week at the center and we missed some of you. We watched the movie “Fireproof” Tuesday morning and everyone seemed to enjoy it (and the popcorn). Wendy has another movie day lined up on Thursday. She hasn’t revealed the name of it yet, but the ones she has chosen have been good movies. Come and join us at 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

Our menu for the week — Monday: chicken penne pasta with veggie marinara, Brussels sprouts and pudding; Tuesday: beef enchiladas, Mexican rice, refried beans, picante sauce, sour cream and cinnamon chips; Wednesday: cabbage steak, special mashed potatoes, carrots, wheat bread and ambrosia; Thursday: meatloaf, Italian green beans, cucumber and tomato salad with feta cheese and yellow cake; Friday: barbecue sliced sausage, stewed tomatoes, mac and cheese, a roll and graham crackers. Please come and join us for lunch and fellowship at 11:30 a.m.

The Sew and Sew Sisters have received lots of bags of stuffing for heart pillows, so they may be needing volunteers to stuff the pillows. Gotta keep those girls busy. Christmas is coming and their articles will be taken to the Veterans Hospital in Houston to spread some cheer. Wouldn’t you like to see the faces of those Veterans when they receive the gifts?

Hope you have a great week and that you’ll try to come to the center.
