Spring Fling
The party is next week! Make your reservations now for the Spring luncheon on May 3.  Speaking of spring, have you noticed all the beautiful daffodils, trees and shrubs that are blooming. I noticed El Dorado Hills Boulevard is in full bloom. This party is sponsored by the El Dorado Hills Senior Council, the El Dorado Hills Community Services District and the Senior Nutrition Lunch program of Placerville. Doors open at 10:30 a.m., entertainment by the RiverBend Band begins at 11 a.m. and lunch is served at noon. Thanks to the generosity of the Folsom Lake Concert Association, we are excited to have the Riverbend Band perform at this event. Suggested donation for lunch is $3 for seniors age 60 and up, all others $5. Our local El Dorado Hills Fire Department and staff will serve lunch and clean up. They are wonderful, aren’t they! After lunch, a door prize drawing will be held and many great prizes will be given away. Make your reservations soon by calling the Senior Center 9(916) 358-3575.

Senior Nutrition lunches
Delicious and nutritious lunches are served weekdays at noon, at the El Dorado Hills Senior Center, 990 Lassen Lane. For seniors 60 and older the suggested donation is $3, all others $5. This is a great place to have lunch, meet new people and visit with friends.

Happenings in May
If you haven’t been to the Senior Center yet, join us for our brand new Senior Center Orientation meeting the first Wednesday of the month (May 1). We will serve you a continental breakfast, tour you through the center and tell you all about our wonderful programs. We like to think we have something for everyone!
