Sunday Best: Lunch at the Senior Center

On Labor Day, I had lunch at the Sheridan Senior Center. The building was recently renovated. The lobby contains a lounge area and café where homemade soup, salad, sandwiches, and desserts can be purchased to take home during the week.

In the dining room, the food is now served on plates instead of the plastic trays they used in the past that reminded me of school cafeteria lunches. The tables now contain silverware, napkins, pitchers of water, and glasses. Before, you had to collect your silverware, napkin, and drink when you got your tray.

During the week, besides a main entre, there’s a soup and salad bar option. This wasn’t available on Monday because it was a holiday, so for lunch, I had a sloppy Joe, sweet potato fries, baked beans, apple sauce, and chocolate cake, which were all delicious. I’m looking forward to returning for lunch another day.

What’s the best thing that happened to you this past week? Please tell me about it in the comment field. I look forward to hearing from you and hope something good happens to you this coming week.

  1. A widow lady took me to the clinic for an ultrasound of my abdomen. We had a delightful conversation all the way there and back. The tech who did my ultrasound explained everything My widow friend and I did and was courteous. We did some shopping afterward as well. The best thing is that she didn’t charge me. It was from the kindness of her heart that she drove me all the way there and back when she didn’t have to go to the city at all that day. How I wish more people were as kind and considerate of the less fortunate.
