LEISURE CENTER: The Leisure Center is reaching out to the community to ask for help in delivering meals and driving the bus. One day a week (excluding Saturday and Sunday) is all you would be asked to do. If you feel like you cannot commit to one day a week then sign up as a reserve driver or deliverer. If you should need to be off, someone will fill in. This is a wonderful service for our community and certainly helps people who do not feel like fixing a meal or just can’t because of health reasons. The saying “many hands make light work” certainly applies to this situation. Drivers need a valid driver’s license. Please call 886-3466 if you are interested.
