Catered Cuisines for Renaissance Plaza

Tomorrow we will be serving the community of Renaissance Plaza with a hot meal.  We will start meal delivery around 11:30am with intent to have everyone a meal before 12:30pm.  The meals in the past have been very successful and we have a lot of participation in this community.  This will be the first of the home deliveries.

Catered Cuisines

Our monthly delivered meal to the residents of Winfield Estates community went over real well.  Since this was the first of our home delivered program there were a few hiccups, but all-in-all it went very well.  Everyone that placed an order for a meal received one before 12:30p, midway of the lunch hour.  We look forward to becoming more proficient and hopefully being able to provide more benefits to this and other communities.

Thank you, to Winfield Estates for allowing us to serve you.

October Events

Fall Festival.  We are looking forward to a full list of fun activities this month culminating with the end of the month "Fall Festival".  Our annual fall festival is an exciting time for the residents and the community we generally have a costume party atmosphere with a majority of the residents participating.  We have several of the local day care centers come through and trick-or-treat from our residents and our residents hand out candy to the young people.  At the festival there are usually games like 'bobbing for apples' and ring toss.  We often have face painting and other crafts.  A good time is gaurenteed to all that attend.  This years event will be October 28, starting around 10:00am until 1:00pm look forward to seeing friends and family for this event.

National Night Out

We had a great last evening at Renaissance Plaza with all the members of the community that turned out to the event.  There was plenty of food, music and games for those that attended.  This was the first of these events that I have attended and I would have to say that it was definitly a success.  Our facility provided a chicken speghetti dinner for the senior citizens that turned out, I believe that our meal was the star of the show we feed over 70 people.  A great time was had by all!

Upcoming Community Events

Christian Care Center will be sponsoring a luncheon at Renaissance Plaza on August 16, 2011.  The goal of this luncheon is first and foremost to provide a meal for some of the senior citizens in our local area.  Another objective will be to speak about the new program similar to but unrelated to "Meals on Wheels".  We plan on eventually providing a weekly meals to those that would like to participate and for those that aren't able to prepare a meal for themselves.  I know that this is only a drop in the bucket to the full need in the community, but in a drought every drop counts.
