Many compliments on the oven-roasted chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, peas with mushrooms and, of course, the apple pie h la mode were passed on to the cook. Oct. 21, found 15 site and satel- lite site coordinators at the office in St. Cloud for a long day of informa- tion sharing, etc. One can always learn something to take back and try at their site. We are made aware of any changes in the senior din- ing program at these meetings. The change that will effect all is the suggested contribution will increase by 25 cents the first of January, making it $3.50. Being able to serve seniors a nutritious meal is top priority, a tough decision has been made. Starting in January, the employees will have to pay for their meals. Up to this point, the meal was the only "perk" for the part-time employ- ees. IfI caught the right figure as it was spoken, it cost Catholic Char- ities about $70,000 a year to feed their employees. Catholic Chari- ties averages 2,000 meals per day in the nine counties they serve. Normally, we have one "party" day a month. October has always been the pie day, so I was surprised to get information for a "Pumpkin Party" Oct. 28. The Kimball Kruis- ers 4-H club made and brought cuter candy-filled jars decorated to look like jack-o-lanterns. Thank you very much. Their creativity is amazing. Door prizes to Edna and Allie Mac. The menu included pumpkin soup, a turkey sandwich, copper- mixed vegetables, peach slices, or what you can afford. Guests pudding, under 60 pay $6.50.
