Try the Community Center for lunch

Sandoval County Senior Centers serve noontime meals on site and homebound meals for seniors unable to come to the center. The noontime meals are a great opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal and spend some time visiting with other members of the community.

Meal service at the Placitas Community Center begins at noon and continues until about 12:20 p.m. Residents who are 60 years of age or older may enjoy lunch for $1.50. People under 60 years of age are welcome—including children—but must pay $4.50 per meal. The seniors are served first, while those under 60 will be served at 12:15 p.m.

For further information about the lunch program, call the Placitas Community Center at 867-3196.

Turkey Bingo

A special thank-you to First State Bank in Placitas, who was generous enough to donate money to purchase all of the items for our Turkey Bingo that was held in November. It was a huge success.

A special thank-you to Raley’s in Rio Rancho for giving us a discount on all the items we purchased for the Bingo. Without the donations, we would not have been able to have a Bingo to raise money for our senior activities.

It is nice to know that our fellow businesses in Sandoval County are always willing to help out our senior citizens. Your donations were greatly appreciated by all.

Arts and Crafts Holiday Sale

Special thanks to everyone who donated toward the holiday arts-and-crafts sale and also to those who helped out. Without your help, we wouldn’t have been so successful. Also to our very own seniors, who work hard to make the arts and crafts. And special thanks to all the vendors who participated. Thanks so much!
