As everyone settles in to staying at home until this virus runs its course, we are cancelling Senior Lunch Bunch until church services resume again in the next few or more weeks. After this is all over we will be picking up with some really fun guests.
So far this year we have had a panel helping us understand the Advanced Directives and POLST forms. We had a retired Chaplain from Salem Hospital, a Massage Therapist who also works with HOSPICE, and a Firefighter/ Paramedic from Salem Fire. They helped us with our questions and concerns regarding late-in-life medical decisions so we can remain in control. Then we had our own Linda McCallister come and talk to us about her "Dead Book" that she put together so her children and others can take care of the needs of her estate after she dies.
Last month, Pastor Steve talked to us about the Holden Village retreat he went on which was very interesting.
On Tuesday, March 3, Cherry Hoffman will be taking us through her "Journal Jar". This is going to be a fun, laid back time of reminiscing and getting to knowing each other a little more. Please plan on joining us at noon. Bring your own sack lunch, this is a very casual group, and if you have a friend you think might enjoy coming feel free to invite them.
