You Girls Are So Needed!!!
Every year at Christmas time you girls make it possible to show our seniors in nursing homes how much they are thought of and loved. I’m asking for your help again in 2022 to keep “Warm Up America” going strong. If you need yarn come down and pick out the yarn you want to work with. Up until covid hit our Community Service Group was very successful.

You can work in the comfort of your own home and keep the program going. Call today for more info at 518-463-2166. We are open Monday thru Friday, 9am to 3pm and we are located in Rensselaer on East and Herrick Streets.
Nifty, Nifty, Nifty Guess who’s Turning 60 (It’s not Donny Elvis)
For the past eight years this lovely young lady volunteered tirelessly at the Rensselaer County Senior Center. In the last two years when the pandemic hit she was here manning the phone, helping with the boutique and assisting where she was needed. I’ve never seen a person so anxious to become 60 so she could be a legal member of the Senior Center.
We will be celebrating Kim Valle’s birthday with cake, ice cream, and Donny Elvis on Tuesday, March 15th, to say “Thank You” and welcome to the Senior Center. The menu will consist of Chicken Parmesan w/angel hair, Italian blend vegetables and Italian bread.
