We are joining the world of elite status; so you’ll now need to make reservations to dine at Cafe Fox.
I have received notification from the San Juan Basin Area Agency on Aging requiring a reservation system be put in place in an effort to avoid waste; so, it’s time to plan ahead just a wee bit, folks.
You’ll now find we have set out about a week’s worth of reservation lists, enabling you to sign up in advance. If you are already at Cafe Fox, see Rob at the front desk and he’ll help you with your reservation, or call by 9 a.m. of the morning you would like to join us. If we are unable to make it to the phone, dial Ext. 27 and leave a message.
Please do not ask to sign up more than a week in advance, since we will not able to accommodate your request. We also find that seniors have darn busy schedules and the schedules change often; reserving a seat more than a week in advance may create no-shows, putting us right back to the problem of possible waste.
Thanks bunches for your assistance and understanding. Make your reservation today at 264-2167, Ext. 27.
Navigating Medicare 101
Are you new to Medicare?
Are you lost, or confused by all the literature you have received? Do you know which portions you need to enroll in — A, B, C, D? What the heck are all those letters anyway?
Did you know you are entitled to certain free services?
Well, we have answers for you at Medicare 101.
Join us for this informative session on Monday, July 9, at 10:30 a.m., but come with an empty head because we are gonna fill it up.
Registration is required and seating is limited, so please call 264-2167.
Jack and Diane Litt have donated $1,000 to the Ross Aragon Community Center to be put toward the purchase of new tables in Cafe Fox. The community center has provided the rest of the funding.
Thank you to everyone involved in providing new tables. I won’t have to play “catch the table” anymore and we’ll be able to move the tables with much greater ease.

Like to help out?
We are currently accepting applications to assist in our kitchen, library and dining room.
Like to help in the kitchen? Is chopping, slicing, dicing, prepping and stirring your game? If so, we need you, and several of you at that. We’d love to have you aboard.
We are also in need of someone that would like to volunteer in our small library about a half hour every week or two to assist our lead library volunteer. We need help re-shelving books, checking them back in and general tidying up.
Like to greet people and lend a hand? We have the perfect opportunity for you. We are looking for a few people who would like to greet our folks, introduce new clients to our services, show them the ropes of the dining room and offer assistance to those needing help filling out our new client form. Please call me at 264-2167 for an application.
Are you struggling to get meals prepared because you are homebound, recovering from surgery or an illness? Let us do the cooking. Enjoy Cafe Fox meals delivered to your door.
