“We are always the same age inside.” - Gertrude Stein
Cathy Mackay, director of the Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging, has announced plans for the upcoming quarterly birthday party to be held at the Senior Wellness and Nutrition sites. The birthday party will be held on Thursday, July 25, and will celebrate the birthdays of people born during the months of July, August, and September. Mrs. Mackay said, “This is a great time for people to get together and celebrate one another’s birthdays. If you have never had the opportunity to visit the nutrition site in your community and it is your birthday, we would like to invite you to attend this celebration.”
The Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging’s Senior Wellness and Nutrition program is currently in need of Meals on Wheels volunteers in the Salamanca area. The meals are picked up by volunteers at Cattaraugus Community Action, located at 25 Jefferson Street. Most volunteers deliver 7 to 12 meals once per week. It takes about one hour (10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.) to complete a route. Mileage reimbursement is available for volunteers age 55 and over.
If you have ever thought about donating your time to a worthy cause- here is your chance! Delivering Meals on Wheels is a great way to serve your community. This would be an excellent opportunity for area businesses or organizations to serve their community as well!
