On Monday of this week, we volunteered to serve the seniors lunch at our church. There were over 70 people there and a few employees of the church. These older folks make us younger folks look pitiful. It was amazing how nicely dressed they all were and how happy they were to be there. Some of these seniors had exercised that morning in the church gym and gone home to change to come back for lunch. I wish I had their energy NOW. They are amazing.
They were served ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans, bread, and a choice of pumpkin, apple or cherry pie. They also had a small salad bar, tea, coffee, and lemonade. We got to eat after serving them and to also listen to the Scott family sing and play guitar and violin. What a treat.
We really enjoyed doing this. Our church serves lunch once a month for the seniors and it is a nice way for them to socialize. They also had the parish nurse there to take their blood pressure and provide them with information on how to tell the difference between the cold, flu and sinus.
I am hoping we get to volunteer many more times at church. It was a pleasure to do this and our 12 year old enjoyed it too. We love our church.
