July 4-8: No Programs

During the Red Wing Collector’s Society Convention, the first week in July, we are cancelling all of our activities. Staff will be in the office for medical equipment pick-up, answering questions, etc., but no programs are scheduled during the week.

Healthy Living Kitchen: Coming Soon!

Thanks to a generous grant from the Mardag Foundation, this summer the break room will be transformed into a fully functioning kitchen. The kitchen will be available to store food for groups using our facility (classes, games, rentals) and for healthy living classes focusing on nutritious and tasty snacks and meals. Look for the beautiful new space and healthy living classes this fall!

2016 Colorado Peaches Coming Soon!

Once again we will receive a shipment of Colorado peaches in late August. These delicious jewels are hand-picked, hand-packed and tree-ripened, shipped directly from the orchard. Look for the order form with delivery time and prices in next month’s senior newsletter. Contact Aaron at the Country Stop with your questions: 715-442-2429.
