Pot Luck Lunch and Hair Cuts

Our next Pot Luck Lunch and haircuts will be November 14th. Food distributions will be from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. If you come to our door needing a meal we will hand you a meal at our door. We are sad to say that there will be no exceptions. If we are able to provide haircuts those will be from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Entry will be one person at a time and masks MUST we worn to enter the building. There will be no exceptions regarding entrance to our facility. Please understand this is so that we can stay healthy enough to continue our program and provide food to those who need a meal. Please share this with anyone who you know of who may be in need.

For our November 2020 Pot Luck Lunch and Haircuts we will be serving a quarter chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, rolls and dessert.

I want to give a huge shout out to all of the volunteers in the community that come together every month to make this happen! Together We Are Making a Difference!
