In May of 2013 Friends of Seniors joined with the Mother Lode Lions, Pioneer Lions and Placerville Lions in a Zone Project to hold a Cinco de Mayo Taco Fiesta. Thanks to the support of the community, the event was a great success and raised $2,000. Friends of Seniors is happy to announce that we have been able to purchase needed items for the various El Dorado County Senior Nutrition Sites, as well as Home Delivered Meals. The items purchased will allow seniors attending the sites to be better served. Based on requests received, the following items were purchased:
Diamond Springs Site: silverware and mats for the kitchen floor
Greenwood Site: metal cart
Pioneer Site: microwave
Placerville Site: metal cart
Pollock Pines Site: glasses, pitchers, silverware, bus tubs, carpet sweeper
South Lake Tahoe Site: microwave
Home Delivered Meals: dividers and delivery carts for use in apartment complexes
Friends of Seniors would like to thank everyone who supports us in our efforts to assist the senior community in El Dorado County. With your ongoing support, we will continue to help meet the needs of El Dorado County seniors.
And don’t forget to join us on March 16th for our 3rd Annual Spaghetti Feed.
The event will take place from 1-5 PM at the Mother Lode Lions Hall in Placerville. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children under 10. Drawings will be held for great prizes. All proceeds from this year’s Spaghetti Feed will go to the El Dorado County Fire Safe Council Senior Assistance Program, and will be used to create defensible space around senior citizens’ homes. MORE (Mother Lode Rehabilitation Enterprises), or a designated contractor, will perform the work. We hope you will support this great partnership in helping seniors maintain fire safe homes. So come join us for a delicious meal and support a great cause at the same time. See you there!
