Christmas is almost here and orders are now being taken by the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center (Community Center) for holiday pies and rolls.
Loyal customers seem to appreciate the efforts those at the center make in their behalf during the Christmas rush, Center officials said.
You can call 852-2844 to place orders.
“We really didn’t offer the Christmas pies and rolls much before a couple of years ago, but our customers made so many requests we decided to broaden things out a bit from our Thanksgiving push,” said site manager Carol Parker.
“This year we plan to make pies, rolls, cakes, Christmas jello, candy and other items. We are going to be open on Monday, Dec. 17, Wednesday, Dec. 19 and Friday, Dec. 21, for our noon meals. We may be open on Monday, Dec. 24, if we have enough orders for people to pick up,” she said.
Parker and her staff would appreciate getting Christmas orders as soon as possible, so they will know what to plan for.
The center is open to the general public every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and provides lunch from noon to 1 p.m. On Mondays and Wednesdays soups, sandwiches, casseroles, rolls, drinks and a dessert are prepared. Every Friday is a “meat and potato” day with entertainment.
Parker said she encourages any area resident who would like to donate a meal or meals to someone in need to contact her at the center.
“We can work out details for a single meal, meals for a week, a month, or longer. Delivery arrangements can be made,” she said.
“I just want to take a minute and thank my staff, the volunteers and my family in advance for all the hard work they are going to be involved with during the next two weeks. They all have put in a lot of long, hard hours this year in behalf of the center.
“I also want to thank our patrons for their business. These fundraising activities are absolutely necessary to keep the doors to the center open.”
