Picnic at Churchville Senior Center

The three area Senior Centers (Churchville, Staunton, and Waynesboro) like to get together periodically to enjoy special programs and fellowship with each other. It has become a tradition that the Churchville Senior Center hosts an Independence Day gathering for all of us because they are located in a park setting that is perfect for a summer picnic.

This year that event is going to be on June 30, a few days before the actual holiday. So the Waynesboro Center will be closed for on-site meals and programs on that day while we go celebrate with our friends from the other centers. We will also be closed for the actual holiday, July 4. Meals on Wheels will be delivered on June 30, while we’re at the picnic, but will not be delivered on Monday, July 4.

MONDAY :Vegetarian pasta bake, brussels sprouts, baked sliced apples

Waynesboro Senior Center

The Waynesboro Senior Center, sponsored by Valley Program for Aging Services, invites people 60 years of age and older to participate in a variety of programs to be offered in the coming week. The center, at 325 Pine Ave., in the Jackson-Wilson building, is open 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Transportation is provided as needed by a VPAS van driver, who also helps with shopping trips and appointments to local doctors. Contributions toward expenses are accepted.

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
