Heinlein Walhalla Senior Citizen News By Leo Beauchamp On Wednesday March 3rd we held foot care at the center at 8 am and our monthly pot luck dinner at noon. The meeting and foot care was moved from the usual Monday because of a conflict. Thirty-seven received foot care from Stacy Metelmann and Kelli Vivatson. Mary Ann, Barb and Eunice were volunteers. Group two were in charge of the pot luck dinner for the 14 members and guests. President Barb Schmidt began the meeting with the pledge. The reports were given by Janet Hughes and Mary Ann Siguardson and approved. The serving groups were updated and are posted. A kitchen shower is ongoing and a list is available so you may check to see what is needed. Since our janitor has retired it was decided to clean on a volunteer basis. This was made as a motion and passed. Activities in March are; Fun night pot luck supper is on the 15th at 6pm, birthday dinner at the J&H Cafe and Bakery is March 18th at 11:30.
