Senior Center

Dear Editor:

The people of Pagosa are very blessed in many, many ways. One that is unusual by standards in other places is our Senior Center. Every weekday except Thursday delicious lunch is served that includes a salad bar plus entree at a very affordable price.

As we age, cooking meals becomes “less interesting” and for many who live alone, their days are made warm having friends to visit with over such a nice meal. There is joy and laughter around the tables, much like families. Friends, laughter, good food — what a blessing.

Many of our summer people take advantage of the center and often comment, “I wish we had a center like this where we live.” And, many of our summer folks enjoy the opportunity to visit with the interesting year-rounders who have lived outstanding lives with interesting stories. All you have to do is call 264-2167 before 9 a.m. to let them know you are coming. For those who have not been since last year, you will be surprised to find improvements that are inviting in addition to great food.
