Hi everyone! I am Johnna Lewis, the Environmental Diva down at The Shawnee Senior Center and filling in for Kate this week.

Just wanted to say “Thank you!” personally for the outstanding response we had on the request for food donations. This will be used to feed the seniors a while longer. Thank you! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

I have had some people ask if our can collection is over.

Well, we serve meals to seniors five days a week (breakfast and lunch) so 10 meals! So we will not be saying no to anyone who would like to bring in a donation of a can or a case of anything! We have had a few very kind people who have continued to bring items in since December.

One more thing I would like to share – Bobbi G (you know her as Bobbi Gaglia) came to me around Christmastime, asked me what I wished for Christmas. I said “Really, nothing.” Then she asked “What would make your job easier?” I said, “Really, nothing” and she kind of giggled. Then her words were: “There’s nothing you want or need for the center?” I thought and said…. “Oh, a new carpet shampooer.” Well then, my second choice was “I don’t know, a new mop bucket?” Well, I got one! Thank you for the new mop bucket Shawnee Senior Center and Kate! The new mop bucket along with new mop heads is very helpful SOOOO many times a day.

Thank you to all who responded to our request for food donations – you can’t imagine how helpful that was and will be. So for all who are 50 and above, don’t forget we serve lunch Monday through Friday at noon for a $2 donation, and breakfast every morning at 8:15 a.m. is free. Hope to see you there!
