Cinco de Mayo just around the corner

Our next big party sponsored by the El Dorado Hills Senior Council and the county’s Senior Nutrition Lunch Program will be held on Friday, May 6, in the CSD gym at 1021 Harvard Way. Doors open at 10:30 a.m., entertainment at 11, and a delicious lunch of creamy chicken enchilada casserole will be served at noon. The suggested donation for lunch is seniors $3 and all others $5. Our local El Dorado Hills Fire Department will be there to help serve and clean up, and we thank them for that. Many nice prizes will be given away to lucky winners.

Fun Bingo

Bingo is played every Monday and Thursday at 12:30 p.m. at the Senior Center on Lassen Lane. Each player buys two cards at $1.50 each ($3). Additional Bingo cards are available for purchase.
