Senior News: May 2014
Spring Fling was great
With more than 200 attending, everyone had a good time. The lunch was delicious and the band was outstanding with many dancers on the dance floor. The prizes were great and won by many happy people. Everyone went home smiling! The party was sponsored by the El Dorado Hills Support Council, EDHCSD and the Senior Nutrition lunch program of Placerville. We especially want to thank the El Dorado Hills Fire Department and staff for always being here and ready to serve lunch. They also stay and help clean up. They do a great job and we appreciate everything they do. Thanks a lot! Two more parties are coming up; read this column for further information. Summer is coming so prepare yourself for the fantastic warm weather that I love!
