County Senior Center These days everyone is busy trying to get out the word and get in the expansion money Hector Tamayo Les Thorn and Larry Kellerman made an excellent onehour presentation about the Senior Center Feb 15 on KGNB1420 Many thanks to them and to Ben Baldwin who was a terrific interviewer Many people called in during the hour expressing their gratitude for the services being offered through our Center The program was repeated again Sunday morning It was a fine tribute to the hundreds of volunteers who help the place run and a big asset to our allout fund raising campaign here in the city of New Braunfels Were on the move Thanks to KGNB for the wonderful coverage And its time again to thank the HeraldZeitung for Its coverage and for its constant support Monday the Comal County Senior Citizens staff held a volunteer luncheon to honor all the wonderful volunteers who give so much to the Center At least 250 people volunteer or more hours each month This luncheon was a tribute to all these fine people I wish I could do more to show appreciation but I think they know Mark your calendars for March 14 There will be a Lasagna Supper with entertainment and then dancing Marie Dawson at the Senior Center The menu will be lasagna salad garlic bread and fabulous homebaked desserts Serving hours for that wonderful lasagna will be between 6 and That way not everyone will eat at

house so get your ticket early The homedelivered meals programis increasing daily We are so pleased that the homebound elderly can enjoy a good well balanced meal each day And it really makes us feel great when a satisfied customer writes this kind of thankyou letter to the Center Dear Ms Bartling Having just finished my third meals on I feel compelled thank you not only because you care about old people but also for the thought and effort you must put into these meals They arc beautifully presented and so tasty that I now know that my taste buds are still alive Thank you God bless you Isnt it a wonderful commentary on the preparation packaging and delivering of homedelivered meals We always need more volunteer deliverers It is rewarding and as Les Thorn commented on the radio last Saturday sometimes the meal deliverer is the only person who the homebound citizen sees that day Now that will make you stop and think wont it Another helpful service provided at the Center is tax preparation
