Pancake breakfast at Cafe Fox

A pancake breakfast fund-raiser to benefit the senior meal programs of the Silver Foxes Den will be held at Cafe Fox.

Start your day off right by enjoying pancakes slathered in warm syrup, served with bacon, scrambled eggs, cantaloupe, cinnamon toast, orange juice, coffee or tea.

Cafe Fox (North end of the Ross Aragon Community Center) is located at 451 Hot Springs Blvd.

The fund-raiser will be held Thursday, June 28, 7:30 to 11 a.m.

The fund-raiser is by donation; bring the whole family or staff and a hearty appetite!

Thank you

Opportunities await

We are currently accepting applications to assist in our kitchen, library and dining room.

Like to help in the kitchen? Is chopping, slicing, dicing, prepping and stirring your middle name? If so, then we need you and several of you at that. We’re too busy with the staff we have. Help!

We are also in need of someone who would like to volunteer in our small library about a half hour every week or two to assist our lead library volunteer. We need help re-shelving books, checking them back in and with general tidying up.

Like to greet people and lend a hand? We have the perfect opportunity for you. We are looking for a few people that would like to greet our folks, introduce new clients to our services, show them the ropes of the dining room and offer assistance to those needing help filling out our new client form. Please call me at 264-2167 for an application.
