All of us working at the center miss all of you. We kid each other on how much easier our jobs are without people, but we don’t believe it for a second. We’re nothing without you. Occasionally we have a visitor checking out videos or selecting a book to take home. But daily, we are mostly alone.
We enjoy the energy from our Seniors. They are here for lunch, but before that they come in to shop at Vintage Treasures, select videos, decide on a book or simply chit chat. We miss our line dancers and their music on Mondays and Tuesdays and miss the laughter of our “Hand and Foot” card players on Wednesdays.
The energy in the dining room is contagious. We are able to keep up with what is happening on your home fronts—children visiting, a new grandchild or great grandchild’s arrival, vacations taken—because we get to talk to you on the phone and drive-thru.
All of you seem to be energized when you arrive and see familiar faces. Each day is homecoming. We aren’t sure how free we will be when we open up again to diners. Will there be masks and vaccinations required? It does depend on what our vaccination rate is when the time comes. Hopefully 95% of our populace will have stepped up to protect each other. Only time will tell.
