Thank you for lending a hand at the treasure hunt we call “The Healy Giant Yard Sale.” It is astounding the amount of work and effort it takes to put on an event of that caliber. We truly appreciate your support and acknowledge that we could not have done it without you.
What a nice opportunity to work side by side, get to know each other better. What a great way to give your old stuff a home and buy others peoples stuff that you may need, but definitely want. Great stuff changes hands, and the senior center gets to continue to serve our community through nutrition programs for seniors.
Homebound seniors get a hot lunch delivered five days a week, frozen meals are prepared for you to take home or bring to a neighbor, and hot lunch is served in our dining room Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Social recreational and volunteer opportunities are created. That is what we made happen the last weekend in August for sixteen years. The effort will last us the whole year.
