Senior meals

Dear Editor: The Human Services Association-sponsored Downey senior nutrition program is to be commended for bringing health and happiness into the lives of seniors.

A senior citizen can be served a hot three-course, nutritious meal (county dietitian approved) for a modest $2.25 donation. That’s the health part; the happiness part comes to light with the warm fellowship we share that goes together with the delicious food.

In the December of my years (I’m 90), I’ve been fortunate to gain some of the greatest friendships in my lifetime through participating in the program – and kudos to our site manager, Lupe, for doing her best to make everyone feel welcome and important!

Please feel free to come and join us for lunch at 11:30 a.m. at the Barbara Riley Community Center. It could very possibly change your life for the better!

Harold Hougland
