Valentine’s Day was great!
Thank you for coming to our annual Valentine Party on Feb. 10. We had a great time with more than 220 attending. This event was sponsored by the El Dorado Hills Community Services District, Senior Support Council and the Senior Nutrition program of Placerville. Lunch was served at noon and was delicious. Thanks to our local fire department, they always do a great job in serving and cleaning up. Our Fun Time Band was terrific! They are so good, many people were on the dance floor dancing and having a good time. Many prizes were given away and everyone had a lot of fun.

 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.
