The Weekly News brought to you by Marilyn Gilbert & Debbie Bedard

Ice is nice…….in drinks or on rinks, but not on roads, driveways or walkways. That was not “nice ice”. We hope all of you stayed safe. We did hear of a couple of incidents with our seniors. We wish them well. As we write today, Jan. 1st, we are reminded of our resolutions. We all made a list of those big ideas for this year. Well, a little advice here that we just read this morning. Take small steps to do three small improvements. Not so overwhelming.

Let’s eat!! Here is the menu for Tuesday and Thursday. Tues.,Jan. 7th-Soup, Baked Haddock, Sweet Potato, Green Beans, Blueberry Parfait. Thurs.,Jan. 9th- Soup, Fresh Made Stuffed Peppers, Rice, Broccoli, Ice Cream Sandwich.
